I'm having a very difficult time finding an acceptable fan controller as well. I had not discovered this Lamptron series, but generally with fan controllers from what I can see a lot of them are unreliable and not very robust.

I'm trying to find something relatively specific, yet not out of the blue:
1. Simple design
2. Displays all 4 (or however many) temps with individual knobs for control
3. Displays all 4 fan levels (in RPM or %, I don't really care which)
4. "Warning" system to where if I didn't turn a fan level up to supply adequate cooling for a CPU/GPU that it would warn me via a beep or blinking system.
5. Robust

If possible, it would be nice to have an auto and manual switch. Auto being a programmable feature in which I can set a temperature vs fan speed profile. I know SpeedFan can do this, but I've had difficulties getting it set up.

I know this seems complicated and I'm probably asking for something that may not exist since the market for a "control system" cooling for fans in a computer is probably not very wide, so who would waste the resources putting so much time/money into it when not many would buy/use it?

If anyone knows anything, it would be much appreciated.

Edit: I'm MOST interested in an external fan controller so I can sit it on my desk. the NZXT LXE has a great unit on the exterior and would be great if it wasn't HIGHLY unreliable. It's the only one I can find that looks half-way decent, but if anyone knows of any that I may have missed, please point me in the right direction!

Thanks!

and yes i know how to solder and that is a good idea but idk what leds they use different leds use different amounts of power i dont want to buy it then try to get new leds that pull to much or cant hold the amount of power going threw them
 
Leds use very little power so there wouldn't be an issue there, modding the case to home them is another option, I fitted my 8 channel into the roof under my rad by using a template to drill the holes and mounting it through the roof,
That would leave your hotswaps as is, or if you go for two drivebay units, mod the hotswap into the case :)
