Gah I hate this! Just when I think I'm about done! Does the controller go in one of the 5.25" spots?
The fan controller you want is a sunbeam rheobus extreme. 30w per channel, 6 channels total. You can connect multiple fans to a single channel. It's one of the top fan controllers on the market, and the cost is nice

Awesome guys thanks +rep.

I'll take a look at that fan controller. Does it fit into one of the 5.25" slots?

Here's the breakdown of the fans according to LD: Front 2 x 140mm fans, top of the case 4 x 120mm fans, back 1 x 120mm fan, back under PSI 1 x 92mm. Bottom side panels you can fit 4 x 120mm radiators in each side.

Any idea how many GentleTyphoon's can be attached to one channel?

Each GT consumes about 1 watt of power (very briefly a bit more when spinning up but nothing to be concerned with). So you could put all on 1 channel easily. You will need splitters of couse. Typically spiltter come in 1->2, 1->4 and 1->6 but I am sure you can find 1->3 as well.

If all you want is to run the fans a max RPM all the time you won't need a controller as you can plug the GTs right into the PSU. Just for your information.

The Rheobus controls the speed by manually adjusting knobs on the front. There exist controllers where you adjust fan speed from software. They tend to be a lot more expensive.
