New build - fan speed help

I'm a first-time builder and although my new pc works great, I suspect I need to address the following:

I'd like to be able to keep my system as cool as possible, but I don't think I am properly using the fans that came with my case. They all spin, but utilities such as CPUID Hardware Monitor and Speedfan are only detecting 1 of the 5 fans in my pc. I'm almost certain that I have not properly connected some sort of cable, as my mobo has empty connectors for fan headers.

If the community would like me to post my entire system specs, I can do so, but for now let me just say that I have the following:

* i5 with cooler master hyper 212 (1 fan)
* antec illusion 300 (2 front intake fans, 1 rear exhaust fan, 1 top exhaust fan)
* antec ea650 psu

I can't seem to locate any sort of connectors on the case fans that would connect to the mobo.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

  1. Hi men, the power conectors of the fans's case are like THIS?, if the answer is yes, speedfan can't detect fans that aren't connected to the mobo.
