I never ran into this problem before, but I ran out of fan power plugs on the MB with my new case. I like having my MB regulate how fast the fans run (keeps things quiet) and its automatic. However, I've used up all the fan slots and I have more fans, which are now plugged directly into the power supply. What can I do?
 
Manual control with fan controller. Or maybe someone makes a fan controller that plugs into the motherboard and sort of amplifies the control signals that the motherboard generates to control multiple fans.

Actually, are there cables that support 2 fans? I do have 2 fans side by side on the top. If I could wire both to the same port, that could help in freeing up additional slots.

As for a fan controller, which one should I get?

leinahtan, the controller you looked at has a battery because it uses a small amount of ram to remember what your selection was for fan speeds, i would suggest getting a controller that has manual control such as what conumdrum suggested
