Perhaps something like this?  http://www.coolpc.com.au/catalog/ 

Simply plug the controller onto the 3 pin fan connector on the  
motherboard, plug the fan into the controller and twiddle the knob  
until you get the speed you like.

Then there's all the fancy versions like this http:// 

BTW, you can get these anywhere.  I'm  not actually plugging CoolPC...
