Well, the two fan controllers I'd be looking at would be a Scythe Kaze Meter or a Sunbeamtech Rheobus Extreme.

Scythe Kaze Meter:
Pros:
Looks awesome
Displays the fan speeds
Handles 4 fans

Cons:
Expensive
Controls only 4 fans

Sunbeamtech Rheobus Extreme:
Pros:
Controls 6 fans
Very affordable
Up to 30 watts per channel

Cons:
No display
Doesn't look all that fancy

BTW: Nice system specs.

I would go for the Scythe Kaze Master.. It looks awesome and there are temp probes included too. IMO, its well worth the 30ish dollars. I have it, and I just have to say.. Awesome..
