NZXT phantom fan controller question-1 fan on two channels?

So I am planing on buying the NZXT Phantom(link below)soon which has a built in fan controller with 5 20 watt channels. I also want to get a 29 watt delta case fan for exhaust because it moves ALOT of air. I also want it hooked into the fan controller so its not @5200 rpm all the time making my ears bleed.
So my question is can I somehow hook 1 fan onto two channels so it has enough power and still be able to adjust its RPM's?

If that is not possible does anyone know of a 3.5' fan contoller with =or<30 watt channels and is flat(want to be able to close the front pannel)
a b ) Power supply

Hello, welcome to the Guide.

I would go or what you wanted as a fan controller. I do not think you could hook 2 fans on the same channel.

Can anyone recommend a different fan controller with 30 watt + channels?

Thanks for the reply,

I was looking at that earlier and newegg does not say how many watt's per channel it can handle. Sadly it is only 6watts per channel according to NZXT's site and the fan I want needs 29watt.
I found this but I am not sure if the nobs will get in the way of the front panel closing. I might just need to take off the front pannel if I cant find a flat panel one that can handle the fan.

Hey! if you end up going with that fan controller, please post if it lets the door close or not! I have the same case and I am looking at putting in 2 of those fans (Front and Bottom) Thanks!
