Default Final suggestions :)

So i decided, im pretty sure im going to grab the COOLERMASTER RC-690 and move into it from my current, massive, and noisey nzxt Zero.

it seems like a good move.

but im going to swap/add fans, probably Yate Loons (these med. speeds http://www.svc.com/d12sm-124ub.html )

and it looks like thatll be enough blue LEDs to light up my whole room haha

Id like to grab some nice rounded IDE and sata cables as well, maybe LED? any recommendations for those?

anything else i should think of? aka, good/cheap fan controller?

also ive never swapped fans before. anything i need to know?
like, whats the best way to connect them?

round IDE cables are nice, get some UV ones to make your case look awesome. some different colors instead of a single tone really makes it looks awesome.

as for the fan controller:
