I'm looking to get minimum 4 fans that can push large amt of air from the from and bottom so that i get a nice over pressure (3 140mm and one 130 maybe 135 if I can fit it in the fractal design R2 Case with a 180mm PSU) not counting the radiator fans on the h100i.

NZXT CB-LED10-WT Sleeved LED Kit - White, 1 m, controlled from a slot, MAYBE the corsair will connect $13

Sunbeamtech PL-RS-6 Rheosmart 6 Fan Controller with 30 watts per channel. (4.5 out of 5 on 60)

Commander FX - 10 Port Fan Hub (ThermalTake) similar to the other fan hub need to learn where data comes from**

BitFenix Recon Fan Controller $40, max 10 watts per channel, 5 fans, touch screen (4 out of 5 out 45)

Was wondering if i should get 4 pin PWM or select speed manually fans or just generic 3 pin and im guessin 12v volt down for speed selection.

P.S. The fans are getting pricked from here: Really need to know what is the best setup, voltage reg, PWN etc. (The cost below will provide any version that gets picked without any issues), I don’t care about cost, if fan A is $5 but is crappy and fan B is $10 then we get fan B and SAME Logic Applies to the Controller! (Which is the #1 priority, fans will fall in line once the controller ideas are picked).

But I need to stick to a basic design like PWM or voltage regulation etc. I really need a good air cooling setup as an 780ti OC is not going to be cool to operate nor will 2 780tis.
