I have several fan controllers in my cases: Scythe Kaze server, a Silverstone EA module, plus I bought three (yes three!!) Aerocool EasyWatch.
The latter because they were such a deal ($8 each), and for that you get black flat ribbon cables which make cable management a breeze!
The new Zalman 6 Fan controller is quite sweet, too.
As far as making it useful with the removable tray, connect only the CPU and backside fan to your mobo. The rest, you connect to one or more controllers.
(In the 840 I would not bother controlling the 230mm fan: they turn relatively slow and slowing them down further reduces the airflow exponentially!!!)
One more cable routing hint: run one +5 & +12VDC cable to the top of the case. And feed off of there (both fans, front access, optical drive, etc).
