Fans not working

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi,

 

Today I finished building my PC and I encountered a problem.

 

I bought this case: SilentiumPC Armis AR6X EVO TG ARGB

 

and this motherboard: ASUS TUF GAMING X570-PLUS

 

I managed to connect everything on the first try, the PC booted but none of the case fans are spinning.

 

The RGB for them is working, it's just that they are not spinning.

 

I assumed that all I have to do is connect the cable named "PWM" from the back of the case to any of the "CHA_FAN" slot and be done with it.

 

I'd really appreciate if anyone could help me or point in the right direction. (I'd also appreciate if you spoke in layman's terms).

 

Greg.

I also own a case from SilentiumPC. The built-in fan controller needs to be powered by HDD power cable, did you do that?

Yes. Initially I missed that part and the fans didn't glow and spin. I connected the power cable and they started glowing but didn't spin. (at least I did that right)

Do you have a button on top of your case for managing the FAN speed? Isn't it in the middle possition? Try moving this button to the side.

No. Besides the usual (USB, audio) there's only a button for controlling the LED lights (it works) and the power button.

If your fans light up, it means that they are powered. Check the manual, I would look for some physical switch in your case.

I figured it out. It may not be the most efficient solution but it worked.

 

I unplugged every single fan from this connector box thing on the back and connected them individually to the motherboard. For some reason they didn't work when I tried to connect them to a single slot on the motherboard via this PWM cable.

 

Sorry for the commotion.
