How do I change rpm? they are running pretty slow atm

I believe those fans can't have their rpm changed.

80mm fans (unless they're by delta) generally can't move much air, or at least not as much air as I'd like.

Should I get a fan controller such as the Vantec NXP-305?

Provided your fans are connected to the motherboard, they can be controled with;

If they are hooked up to the power supply directly, you will need an external controller like;

Keep in mind, its usualy best to start off with a quality quiet fan. Crap is still crap even if you dial it down. Especialy at 80mm (we've been dialing down 80mm for years, but with todays components, we can't get away the same amount of lac in cooling as last generation).
