Has anyone used this?

http://www.pbtech.co.nz/index.php?z=p&p=FANDPC1012&name=DEEPCOOL-ROCKMAN-Fan-Control-Panel-for-3.5-inch-Fl

It seems to look aright, I am going to be putting it into the Antec 1200 for my upcoming build. Connecting the top 200mm fan and the two rear fans. 

Also, does anyone know where I can buy some 3 pin extenders for the rear fans?

What are you going to run in your box? I've built loads of machines and never bothered with a fan speed regulator. Hey, I bet you just want some more bells and whistles for your setup. Nothing wrong with that mind you, playing with this stuff is fun. Anyway in my experience if you have some good fans in your case, these days they're pretty silent even running at full tilt. Does save power though if you want to regulate them. Thought about just a software solution? I think speedfan is freeware.
Good luck with your build.

Thanks from the reply! I didn't want to add a fan controller for the sake of it. My motherboard only has connectors for 2 fans, the case has 4 fans. I don't want to add any aditional equipment if I don't have to but this seemed like the only real option for controlling more fans that the motherboard can handle.
