What is the name of the website/company that sells fan controllers that vary the speed of the fan according to the temperature of the engine?

Hayden makes some fan t-stats, not sure if they carry one that varies fan speed.

I have both the painless and derale.... IMO, the derale is a nicer unit.

I am in the process of installing the new flex a lite black magic x treme for the 5.0 mustang.....

I have decided to NOT use the cheezy fan controller it shipped with. I am going with http://www.dccontrol.com/ fan controller... instead of just switching on and off at a particualr degree it varies the speed of the fan to attempt to keep the cooling system at a more stable level

67fastback, You must have been reading my mind. I was trying to think of where I saw that controller and website but kept getting a brain fart.
Which one have you decided to get?
Thanks for the replies.

I could have bought the package deal, but its more expensive... I ordered a replacement controller 35 amp size, I also purchased an add-on: a led light that changes color depending on the power being sent to the fan. The 35 amp unit should be fine, specs for my fan followes:
flex a lite black magic x treme
Flow Direction: Puller
Maximum Fan CFM: 3,300 cfm
Maximum Fan RPM: 2,450 rpm
Amp Draw: 18.00 amps
