Okay, with it being possibly the hottest summer i've ever experienced, i'm getting worried about my Computers temperature..

When I was building it, I put out the extra money to get a decent case, thinking of the summers. I've got an Antec 900.

Anyway, lately i've been looking at buying a card read and/or Fan Controller, but i'm completely unsure how they work. I'd be looking at something like this or this.

How do Fan Controllers work? Would they be compatable with the Antec Tricool fans in my case?

Huh, we're about to get dumped on by a Russia weather system which is going to generate shed-loads of snow. Apparently. And you're worried about a bit of sun? :)

Anyway all the fan controllers do is allow you to alter the speed of the fans in the case simply by twiddling the control. Whether your fans pull more air from the case depends on the rest of the air-flow. Computers are designed to get hot to an extent as the components generate heat when in use.
