Hi Masterof thepuppets,
Thanks for the rep+, but if you didn't feel it worthy you should not have given it. I just wanted to make sure you realized that the power connector on the motherboard for the cpu heatsink fan has a max amp rating of around 1.5-1.8 amps. Anything more will overload the circuit and possibly take out the motherboard. The Tornado high speed fans pull a lot more than this. You have a nice rig and I wouldn't want you to loose it...
As for a fan controller. Here's a link or two that has many to choose from:
The Zalman fanmate works well, but you'll need to modify a front panel. No big deal really... Coolerguys is located in your neck of the woods as well (Washington State)
I've used the folks above many times and with no complaints.
I hope this helped, :-)
