I connected the fans to the built in fan controller and the fan controller connects to the PSU.

How did you connect both wires to the fan?

The fan controller has a ton of cables that you can plug into and they are all labelled to correspond with the buttons on the controller. If you don't have LED's on the fans than that cable wouldn't get used.

Only my front fan has an LED that needs to be plugged in so the rest of the LED cables are not being used.

I got it with the CPU. It came as a bundle from a friend at Intel: CPU, Mobo, & Cooler.

I have 2 fans that are LED but they dont have the extra connector to plug into the fan controller, it just has the normal 3pin fan connector on it.

Then the LED would be lit the whole time while the fan is powered. The advantage of the controller is that you could turn off the LED's should you wish to. If the LED is powered from the same 3 pin plug as the fan than you would need to separate it and attach a dedicated power connection to the LEDs.

After upgrading my AMD FX-8150 rig to crossfire and liking the results, I figured it was time to do that same with this rig. Before I do I decided to run 3Dmark11 so I could get a good before and after comparison.

The result as is right now is P7943 - http://3dmark.com/3dm11/3548356

I am going to add a 7950 and OC both cards slightly and run it again

Here is a shot of what it looks like currently:
400

Here is a shot with the 7950 installed with the 7970 - these two cards are both reference models and look identical, the only way to tell them apart is either look at the small label on the PCB or by looking at the power connectors (the 7970 is a 8 & 6, where the 7950 is a 6 & 6):
400

I also thought it would look better if I switched to the all black cables for these cards instead of the cable of many colors I was using before:
400

Final shot ready to power up:
700
