Check how many watts per channel the controller supports, then figure out how many watts your fan uses. If they are the same, or the fan uses less, you should be alright.

Do you have any fans ganged together on a single channel? The amperage on the NZXT is half of what it is on the Zalman. 4W vice 8.4 P=I X E with E=12V. .7a for the Zalman, .33a for the NZXT (assuming I've got my math right.... :) ).
