Hey guys I'm looking to buy LED fans for my Case but I want them all to have the ability to be dimmed and such by my case's fan controller, I know normal fan controllers can perhaps just turn the fan off which also turns the LEDs off but I want fans with the 4pin for the power and 3pin for LEDs.
and maybe a 200mm.

Help is much appreciated!!
if it helps this is my case

Not 100 percent sure, but 4 pin and 3 pin fan speeds can be controlled when connected to the motherboard (system fan headers) through softwares such as SpeedFan or settings in BIOS. Case fan control panel mostly utilizes 4-pin Molex connector (using only the 12v and ground wire). By varying the voltage, you can control the speed of the fan through a knob.
