Would love feedback/advice for upcoming purchase - Page 3

I'd also like to add a question.

A lot of these new cases I'm looking at have fan controllers built in. I've never really touched or messed around with fans every before so its a little bit daunting the thought of setting their speed and controlling them myself. Do you guys have any advice or recommendations on how to actually effectively control my fans manually? Although I'd MUCH rather the system to it automatically if this is a viable option.

motherboards with PWM control/3/4-pin should be able to control the fans on bios

Which would you reocmmend? Using the controllers manually or the bios? How would it work with the motherboard you linked if the case has 4 fans and I use watercooling which would be another 2 fans? I don't think the motherboard has enough 3/4 pins for this.

Yes you would need a fan controller or a motherboard with more 3-4pin connectors

Am I able to just use the fan controller pre-installed in the case and just set it at a certain value and just leave it forever? Like set the fans speed to maybe 70% and leave it be and never touch it again? Is there some kind of sweet spot for fan speed?

This case because if its water-cooled it should be fine, space wise. It comes with 4 fans plus my radiator fans (2) so it has 6 in total... The motherboard has 3 slots, one of these slots would be a CPU but the radiator has 2 fans so I'm not sure what to do in this.

The case allows for 2x2 fans to be controlled so any kind of advice on what to connect what where would be hugely appreciated. I have some kind of idea what to do but this going off very limited knowledge and some research.
