Those control the Fans LED (On/off) switch.  Some fans come with the LED part separate from the Power for the fan therefore you can turn the LED on or off if you wish.  However since the ends are female and most fans except for the new CM fans coming out also have female ends the cables will be useless.

 

I have been looking for a cable with male ends on both ends, no luck.

hey that cables are for the fan controller keypad on the front panel. you will notice that there are dedicated controller buttons i.e gpu hdd and so forth . each cable has a lable tag to indicate where and what device should be connected to it. I just saw the tutorial video and readd the manuel that i downloaded from the site. however i would not connect my cpu on the box's fan controler id rather let my motherboard take care of reading and adjusting fan speed for my cpu. as far as adding a exta aftermarket fan controller to the box i would say its not needed, however bare in mind that other fan controllers indicate temperatures , so weather you would want that function is entirely up to you

Cheers Gponcho, I thought they might be to do with the LED's but so far I've managed to not actually encounter any fans with separate LED controls. You'd have thought that after 10 years of doing custom builds & a bit of modding I might, but...... no! biggrin.gif

Wouldn't a male-male extension be rather easy to make if you buy un-soldered plugs and the wire?


@Allspark, cheers but I didn't mean the fan control 3 pin plugs, I was talking about the other black ones which Gponcho has said are LED controls.

Happy as all can be. this will be my 4th pc build and first custom water cooled system. Also first case mod. I have a vision for this build.

Just want to let you all know this will be a slow build, because am a civilian contractor working overseas with the Army. Am home now in NC for now. biggrin.gif397397

Box had some dents but the case was ok. FYI i wasn't home so i had UPS hold in it. so i could pick it up.
