There's a molex in the "mess" in back that is the +12v connection for the fans. It's the one that's by itself and not daisy-chained to others. You probably connected 12v to one of the daisy-chained connectors and that will give you power to the fans only it bypasses the controller. Hope this helps!

They all have the yellow and black wires, this one does not connect to the others and is on a longer wire. Did you notice there was a daisy-chain of 4 molex connectors? If you connect to the daisy-chained ones, that will supply straight +12v to the fans with no control. If you connected to the seperate one, it channels +12v thru the potentiometer on the front.

Check out your instruction book, they show a diagram of the fan connections. One other thing, it was hard from me to notice a change in fan speed from the lowest setting to 1/2 way. It was only when I moved the dial fully clockwise that I noticed a change in fan speed.

I hope this helps. If worst comes to worst, try all the molex connectors. Otherwise, maybe you have a defective control. Good Luck!

I'm going to post some pics of my case later tonight. I'll try to get one with the fan connector.

Ughhh! when I ordered my sniper I had no idea that there was a all black edition. I'm jealous of those of you who got one! Oh well, this will be my first case mod, so it will be a learning experience lol. Here's a laugh. While taking down my case to the frame, my wife got worried about the top panel and said "Don't do that! Its a tool, not a toy!" LOL

i do believe it is a faulty controller.

i removed the panel and traced all the wires. i also tried all molex connectors.

when i plugged into the single molex i did not notice a difference in fan sound or air pressure.

i even took the panel off thinking maybe the turn dial was broke. ut no difference still.

i forgot. imy daisy chain has 5 connectors on it. is this possible the problem.

Ok everyone just a general question here. I've noticed that several people seem to have a faulty controller. Since I've broken down my case in prep for painting the interior (I don't have any components to put in it yet). Would it be wise to wait on painting the interior until I've found out whether mine is good to go? If it is faulty, would I have to send the whole case in to get a new controller?

Sorry to hear that fellow Sniper owners are having trouble with their fan controllers. Antonio8, I think you do have a problem there. If you tried all the connectors and didn't get a change, it's a good bet that it's defective.

I'm posting some shots of my case for official membership. I was in the market for a case and saw an advertisement for the Storm Sniper at Microcenter. When I read how all the intakes are filtered (screened) and that it was tool-less with huge intake and exhaust fans, I was sold. The fan/LED controller was a bonus plus the fact that you can remove the hdd cage (I did).

My temps are almost exactly the same with my Antec1200 and I thought that case was good! I can't understand how the Sniper can cool so well with that HUGE screened opening in the side panel but the results speak for themselves. I originally had (2) 120mm fans in the side door but took them out as they did NOT change temps! I can idle my C0 (3838A) i7 with the fans turned all the way down. Temps are 35c-36c at idle

please add me to the list.

here are some pics. sorry if the size is not right this is my first time doing this.

i know cable management is not the best but i have way too much stuff in this case.

also it is the black edition that also came with a pretty funny pad. i also included a picture.
