How can you control the speed of fan that comes with the Antec Sonata III case from the outside?

The Antec Sonata III case comes with a nice 120mm fan that has a 3 speed switch. Most of the time the fan is fine on low, but for games or other taxing workloads I need to switch it to medium or high. Opening the case every time I want to change the setting is kind of a pain.

"If it's the usual Antec 3-speed control with a fairly long cable, could you no remove an expansion card slot and poke the switch out the back?

Assumes you have fairly easy access to the back of the case, of course."

There is an easier way... Just unscrew that little switch box, pull the switch out from the box and run it through one of those 4 square holes on the side of the elongated fan vent. Then put it back in the box and ... :) I know it's a bit "tight" but... ;)
