You can buy themn just about anywhere:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6811999172

as a few examples. You can also build your own with a few basic parts form any supplier. Really depends what exactly you want top do with fan speed control.

And my favorite place for stuff like this:

If you just want help buying, that's fine (but there's other sections for that). However, you're in the modder's Workshop and we can help you build one, make it look exactly how you want it do, and cost under $10.

If you want to build one. How many fans? How do you want it to work?

This link:

http://www.bit-tech.net/modding/2001/12 ... _control/1

Shows a very basic rheostat configuration for fan speed control. This is a single fan but 5 or 6 redundant circuits could be made. The actual circuit looks like this in schematic form:

The rheostat in the schematic is a 25 Ohm 3 Watt variable resistor. Sold by Radio Shack as Part # 271-265. They cost about $4.00 EA.

A very simple solution may be found here:

The latter providing everything needed.

I've been using this one for the last year. First one I've had that didn't fry a channel within six months.
