The extra 4-pin molex connector is to power the fan controller, you will need to connect that.

You are supposed to connect the case fans to the leads from the fan controller, not your motherboard. There is a small label attached to each wire that tells you which fan the wire is attached to. Connect that to the corresponding wire from the fan controller (also labeled). You should have 1x front, 1x rear, 2x top fan, 2x bottom side, and 1x large side connectors.

eg: Connect the wire from the front fan to the wire labeled with the front fan symbol from the fan-controller.

Thank You. smile.gif After I posted, I actually sat back down and figured it out. It took me a second to realize that the pre-installed fans were already connected to the Controller and I just had to hook up the side fans and any new fans that I buy to the corresponding connectors. It is an extremely nice and convenient setup, for sure.

The only problem I am having right now is that one of my fans is EXTREMELY loud. At first I thought it was the Case Fans, but you can turn them down to minimum speed with the Fan Controller and the noise is still present.

The only other two things it could be is either the Intel Stock CPU Cooler or my XFX 6870. It honestly sounds like the noise is coming from the CPU Cooler, but I could be wrong. I'm still trying to work this one out. tongue.gif

None of the case fans should be extremely loud, unless it is defective or something.

It could be your CPU cooler, PWM fans tend to be louder (I'm assuming you didn't connect the CPU cooler fan to your fan controller).

Get MSI Afterburner or a similar program to monitor your GPU fan speeds, you can manually turn it down to silent using the program and pinpoint which fan is loud.. or just use your fingers to physically stop the fans

It is indeed the CPU Cooler.

I downloaded MSI Afterburner and used my Fan Controller to turn all of the Case Fans and the GPU Fan down as far as possible and the noise was still extremely prevalent.

I went into the BIOS and enabled Smart Fan and Quiet Mode which definitely helped a little, but it is still loud and extremely annoying. My AMD Stock Cooler was completely silent no matter how hard it was running so I'm not understanding why this one is so loud.

Has anyone else tried the Sandy Bridge stock coolers that can compare my experience to yours? I am LOVING my new System, but this noise has got to go. lol

I don't know what kind of sound it is, but check and make sure it's not accidentally hitting the fan cables where they come out of the fan, this has happened to be several times..

Hi guys, I noticed the case had a slight vibration almost like a small piece of thin plastic brazing against a fan.

Even though not a single fan is being disturbed, the case kind of vibrated even before components were put in.

It is truly annoying, however if I hold and push the side door(the one without the two 120MM fans and 1 200MM fan) it stops the vibration.

Anyone experience this?
My System.

Easy fix bro. Get an aftermarket cooler or put it under water
