Check this one out - the knobs do not stick out much and iy comes with light control too : http://www.pccasegear.com.au/prod6164.htm

You also might want to avoid knobs completely and get something with push-buttons or automatic like these units:

If you want recessed knobs, I'd look at this one:

One good thing about it is that you can set a temp threshold based on its temp sensors. When the threshold is reached, it automatically spins up all fans to 100%, then drops back to preset when the temp drops below the threshold. Means you don't have to mannually spin the fans up prior to intensive (i.e., Crysis) processing.

Seven separate channels, 7 Watts max. That's .58 amps per channel at 12V max.

CORRECTION: That's 10 Watts per channel, or .83 amps at 12V

Possibly, the 4 knob, regular sunbeam controller can handle 20watts per channel. So long as the combined wattage of your fans is less than 20 watts, it should be fine.
The 6 channel extreme version has 30watts per channel.

Still....how many fans do you have in your case man?!

lmao, well most of the fans are on my rad.. and i only have 4 on there right now.(getting two more later for the other side) But in my case i only have three, aside from my rad fans but im not going to be controlling them, as they aren't even noticeable noise wise.

even though i might not use the 3-fan-per-channel thing, i was just curious

Yes you could as long as the combined amps dont surpass the rated load of each channel.

I personally cut the connectors off and used cables from some old fans I destroyed to make shrouds and soldered them, some heat shrink tubing and I was done.
