Front Panel Switch Board

I'm thinking of creating or implementing a switch board type thing on the front of my computer. I want to be able to control fan speed, LEDs and power on a small board of switches below my Bluray drive.

Does anybody know where I would start with doing this?

I don't think I could control the LEDS and Fans differently though because they both run off the same power.

There's plenty of drive bay fan controllers on the market; whether there are any that control LEDs as well is another matter.
