So I built my first PC in over a decade and I have a question.
My case is the Antec Three Hundred. There's a fan in back, one on top and two in the front.
Despite lighting up and doing an initial spin on boot, I've never seen the top and 2 front fans spinning. I was just playing Dragon Age: Origin and the back fan was chugging along but the other 3 were just sitting there.
Wondering what exactly I'm missing here. Were they just not needed or do I need software or bios adjustment or?
My MoBo is a GIGABYTE GA-870A-UD3 AM3 and I'm running Win 7 64-bit with a Antec 500w PSU.
What kind of connector is on the fans that aren't operating? Are they connected to fan headers on the motherboard? Are they connected to a molex power connector from the power supply? Are they connected to anything at all?
if they're all connected to the power supply and chained together, that is the 'molex setup' that Ko888 was talking about above.
Firstly, make sure you chained them together correctly. From power supply, into the first one 4pin, then go down the line. Also make sure they're all well connected, the pins inside those love to bend/break
