Lightbulb Antec P182 Fan Removal.

How would I go about switching the current fans with some Noctua's or some Yate Loon's and still be able to use the built in fan controls. If that isn't possible what would bee a good fan controller that would fit behind the P182's door.

Good fans don't need a fan controller :P

But if you want a good fan controller

Those 3-position controllers on the Antec fans are hardwired into the fans themselves, unfortunately. But you'll find the controller portion clips right out of the holder at the back of the case, so you can throw the entire fan out and put something better in.
