The best, smartest fan controller?

My motherboard has 2 4 pin fan connectors in which you can do PWM. The others are 3 pin and just put the fan at its max speed.

I was thinking there must be a fan connector that can control it, even with software. I saw one that had a SATA connection, but I'm not sure if thats what I want. I was thinking maybe it hooked up to the power supply, and then it hooked up to a SATA connection and had software that would control the power to the fan.

Anyone seen something like this?

Looks great, but it doesn't auto control the fans.

oh you want auto control? what's your budget?


My budget is unspecified. If it wows me, I will probably buy it.

I saw a fan controller in the tomshardware articles, it allowed usage of up to 8 fans, but all fans connected to it were ran at the same speed as the fan on channel 1 of the device. I dont like that.
