OK ... I was actually thinking about connecting the fan to the PWM output directly on the controller, not on the LED LDD driver. But now I realize the fans also need a "driver" of sorts to adjust the...

Oh I think I see now. If I ever wanted to go over 1000mA and "overclock" my LEDs I'd want a 48V PSU. That will probably never happen - these will probably be too bright even at 1000 mA - but I guess...
