Thanks for the help. I guess you had no luck in finding a 4-pin power connector fan controller either, eh. I will try what you mentioned. Thanks again. To be honest I didnt bother searching.

you can buy the 3pin fan controllers. then buy the fan connector converter cable. converts the 4pin connection of your fans to 3pin, and then they work perfect with the fan controller. Have done exactly that myself. Make sure you get the converter cable the right way round, as there are "3pin to 4pi...

I would point the PSU fan upwards because hot air is less dense than cold air, so rises. therefore the psu will help exhaust more hot air out of the case when it is mounted with the fan upwards. This is especially useful if your HDs are mounted in the lower compartment with the psu, as it will help ...

The mobo is good but I prefer the Asus P5K-Dlx for a little more money. However, if you are not going to overclock (as I would assume by your memory choice), both are a little over the top and you can get a much cheaper one that performs exactly the same. If you can stretch slightly more for the Q66...

I think using the soft fan gaskets with zip ties through the holes is a better way of mounting than using the rubber sticks.
It completely stops the vibrations and there is a complete seal around the fan.
Just dont tighten the zip-ties too much...
