Default corsair carbide 500r front fan replacement

Hello Should I but the Corsair SP or AF performance or quite edition?

On my case I have removed the top hard drive cage and only the bottom one is in place, the case has two 120 front fans witch lets be truthful here not very good air flow.

So the Bottom fan needs to come through a hard drive cage, while the top one has free space

Am looking at getting has much air to the GPU 7950 has possible. So SP or AF??

Is it true the High performance edition need a fan controller to change the fan speed? if I connect the 3pins to Motherboard 3pin would the bios allow me to control the speed?

Thanks in advanced

AF would probably be better for AirFlow, as the SP's are geared more towards Static Pressure for radiators.

To answer your question, your motherboard 'should' be able to change the fans, but only through BIOS settings.
