First Build - Stryker Case - Fans turn on for 2-3 seconds, then nothing.

I have a Stryker case and the fan controller/power connection for the fans was very confusing according to the instruction manual. I hope I set things up right but can't be sure.

I can't seem to access the fan controller other than from the back, and I'm not even sure this is the cause for my issue.

When I first boot, the power supply's fan does not spin, but the case's fans---which are connected directly to the power supply, and apparently also connected to the fan controller, do spin.

The fans spin for a total of 2-3 seconds, then turn off. I can turn the power button on again and the fans will spin again for a few seconds, then turn off.

Nothing else turns on. The power button does not light up, no sign of life on anything other than the fans.

My after-market CPU fan installed on the motherboard spins too, so what gives?

This is my first build and I'm very confused and stressed.

Thoughts? Thanks!

Check all connections again. make sure your 8 pin cpu cable is plugged in.
