My 200mm fan on the side panel is not turning on and I have already hooked up the black wire that the case provides for it.
Am I missing anything?

Thanks,

Tried getting the motor going manually, still no spinning.
So far, 3 things in total are not working on my 500R case:
1) 200mm fan
2) white LED light switch does not work
3) fan control on case does not work

Could it be a faulty case or did I miss something when hooking up the wires?

Thanks

I'm not exactly sure lol

It's kind of a rats nest of cables underneath of the right side panel but there is one black cable hooked up to the 200mm fan attached to the left side panel.
I assumed that the rest of the stock cables that came with the Corsair 500R were already hooked up?

How many cables should I need to hook up in total for the fan control switch, 200mm fan, and LED light switch?

Thanks,

Trace all of the wires to make sure they go somewhere to power.

Perfect!

Thanks alot. The black molex connector was exactly what was needed.

The only cable that currently is not hooked up from the 500R case is the "HD Audio" cable.
I can't seem to find that on my motherboard. Any idea if my motherboard supports that cable, and if so what does that cable do exactly?

Also, the fan slider on the front of the case has 3 settings. (up, middle, down)
But it doesn't seem to adjust anything in CPUID HWMonitor when I check the RPM on the fans.

Is there something other then the molex cable that is required for that one?

Thanks,

Late reply, but.. meh, free answers!

1. Your front panel audio connector is where you need to plug that HD Audio cable into. Specifically on your board, check the picture, I highlighted it up for you, it's right behind your audio jacks.

Image was taken from Newegg's product page for your mobo, seen here.

2. HWMonitor will not show any fan speed changes since the fans aren't plugged into your board. HWMonitor essentially reads all of your on-motherboard sensors and relays that information to you, well if the fans are being powered by that molex connector and not your board, well, it won't appear as changed

3. For the fan controller to work, just plug your fans into it and make sure you have that molex power connector also plugged in, then you should be good to go!

Thank you! I'll take a look at this when I get home.
So will my speakers actually sound any better with this "HD Audio" connector plugged in? Just wondering why this connector is required if it's just software (codec) related anyways? Or is it more then software alone and does it use hardware somehow? If so, will my Creative speakers support it? (Exact speaker specs should be in my signature)

Thanks,
