Any help will be appreciated. Thanks, Greg.
Of course, the most direct way is to plug the fans into the mainboard.
And obviously, you must have more fans than the number of fan connectors on your mainboard. Perhaps you can use a Y-splitter cable to connect two fans to the same fan connector? (But you must first investigate if the fan connector can supply enough power/current to both fans).
For a fan controller, I can only think of Zalman's MFC which has a 4-pin PWM connector and a C-3 cable which you can plug into your mainboard. I cannot say for sure as I have not used that before but it just might. Check it out. But even if this works, it has just one such connector/cable and might not worth it.
