I have a system that has the following Antec GX 700 case, FX 6300 CPU, Gigabyte R7 260X GPU, Corsair 1600MHz RAM, Gigabyte 990 FXA-UD3 Mobo. I would like to power all of the fans, but the Mobo only has 3 fan power connectors, would using a fan controller allow me to power the extra fans? HELP!!!!

Yes, it would allow you to run more fans. I actually have my build inside of a GX700, and that's the setup I use.

Alternately, you can just buy fans that you would just connect to the PSU but they would run at a constant speed.(so dont get loud ones. LOL)

The enclosure should have a controller built in, there is a cable split into four ends that connect to fans inside the case, and that red switch under that yellow-striped cover controls the fans. There are two speeds, low and high, you can also turn them off entirely. Remember, the controller does not connect to the motherboard, so you will not see any auto-adjustment of fan speed.
