    Hi,

    Newegg has two (3.99 and 5.99):

    Sunbeam FC PCI Fan Controller - Retail
    newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811992003
    $5.99

    ZALMAN FAN MATE 2 Fan Controller - Retail
    newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835118217
    $3.99

    Maybe one of those will work for you.

    You could also look into building your own but I don't know the risk/cost/reward of that for you versus buying one.
