Default Fan controller recommendations for 6 H1011.

I have always enjoyed quiet fans, in the past. Whenever I have the cash flow to buy typhoons they are out of stock. When I don't have money, they are in stock. So screw it, I have 6 San Ace H1011. This fan pushes air through an SR-1 like it is not even there :D. So I plug 4 into my Akasa fan controller. Works fine at 12 v, but the conTroller gets toasty running them at 6v. I am looking for something that has rpm display. Any recommendations?

How much are you looking to spend? I know an mCubed T-Balancer will power them easily enough. But it is pricey and PWM. And the Denki's do knock considerably while on a PWM controller.

The good ol' Sunbeam fan controller will have no problem with them either.

75 USD at max. My biggest issue with noise comes from the fan vibrations. Putting rubber gaskets on both ends of the fan helps considerably. The tick tick is not so bad at 1500 rpms and goes away at full 2600 rpm. The sun beam is my first choice, but several people have complained that it dies with the San Aces under volted.
