I just got a new case: NZXT Tempest Evo. I have left the NZXT fans in there and I'm running them all off the PSU via molex. I'm feeling like it's a bit loud with 5/6 fans running at 100% all the time.

Can someone give me info on fan controllers. I really only want to control the top 2 fans and the 2 intake fans on the front, so 4 fans total. What kind of fan controller should I be looking for? Do I need to get extra wires or anything? I'm a little confused on how to set these things up. (I live in Taiwan so everything comes with Chinese instructions ) Just connect the 4 fans and a molex from the PSU to the controller? Is it that simple? I don't want to go get a controller tomorrow then have to go back and get more connectors/adapters the next day.

Thanks guys!

Edit: Also, what should I be looking for as far a watts go? I don't want to fry the controller if I'm gaming for 3 hours and blasting the fans in the summer.
