Quick System specs:
Case: Cooler Master HAF 932
PSU: Corsair TX850w
MOBO: Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5
CPU: Intel Core i7 920
HS: Prolimatech Megahalem
RAM: OCZ Platinum DDR3 6GB PC3 1600
HDD: 3x WD Caviar Black (32mb Cache) - RAID 0
OD: Samsung LightScribe DVD-RW

Main question -- I am trying to use the Delta 120mm x 25mm PWM fan for the Megahalem, but have doubts on the motherboard providing enough power - so I need to know where I can find some 4-pin PWM splitter -to-> 4-pin molem w/ PWM cable or 3-pin fan w/ PWM cable so I can connect the fan to either the motherboard and PSU or a Fan Controller.

The PWM fan is the Delta AFB1212SH-PWM

Fan controller I plan on getting for other case fans is the Lamptron FC-3
Sunbeam Rheobus EXTREME
Or if anyone recommends anything else???

I need a Fan Controller because I am replacing all the fans with these...
4x Cooler Master 120mm R4 series fans (Red L.E.D's) for the side pannel <- these would either be daisy chained to PSU with molex or connected to 1 channel on the Controller
3x Scythe 120mm Slipstreams for the top exhaust <- these would also be connected to their own channel on the controller
1x Delta 120mm 190+ CFM or 220+ CFM rear exhaust fan <- this would be on it's own channel (they take a lot of power)
1x Scythe Kaze Maru 140mm bottom intake fan <- this one may be hooked up to the controller or just ran to the PSU to 4-pin molex
1x Cooler Master 230mm L.E.D front intake fan <- this would be connected to either 4-pin molex or straight to motherboard (if power is enough)

So, I think I could keep everything as planned if I could find some splitter or adapter(changer) for the CPU fan to allow the power to be drawn from the PSU/Controller and have the PWM wire connect to motherboard.

Thanks for the help!
