The case I want is the Coolermaster HAF XM with a total of 6 fans.
4 x 200 mm 3 pin fans. (top, side, front).
1 x 120 mm 4 pin fan. (for heatsink, hyper 212 evo).
1 x 140 mm 3 pin fan. (exhaust).
What kind of options do I have as far as connections/adapters if I don't want my fans running at full speed/ability to control fan speeds through voltage or PWM and do not want to purchase a fan controller?
You can't plug them all inot the mobo obviously and the only two options really are the two you have specified against,
I would have suggested the fancontroller option over 100% speed from Psu though
**Edit, last option is to choose which two fans to not have connected (One if your Cpu cooler only has one fan)
