if you have more than 6 fans, you may HAVE to go for a fan controllers.
however the problem i have with the front panel fan controllers is that although they have a temperature sensor, they don't automatically change the fan speed based on the temperature, then what is the point of a fan controller?
the system will cool down when idling, thus auto fan controller dials down the speed, cool and quiet.
the system is under load, thus more heat is produced, then auto fan controller sensor picks it up and turns up fan speed, cooling effectively while don't require any manual user input.

i find it quite annoying when fans are happily changing their noise level all by themselves :p
