New PC and my front Fans aren't working

BowlofNails

Everything in my pc works fine besides my front fans. I only have one fan port besides the cpu fan(motherboard: GIGABYTE B450M DS3H). I connected a fan hub to the system fan port and the 2 case fans, top fan, and back fan into it but only the top and back fans work. How can I fix this

I see 4 fan headers.

Edit : Oh, that's not your motherboard, but why include it then ?

Are your front fans turning freely ?

I'm willing to swim against the current.

Is this a powered fan hub?

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

If you have a fan hub and 2 out of 4 fans work, there’s something going on with the hub. Try switching ports between the front and top/back. If the fronts start working you have a defective fan hub.

My bad thought that was the right one. They turn if i (after unplugging everything) open the case and move them with my hands

no, does it have its own power, like a SATA power connector?

If the fan hub doesn't have external power, it may not be sufficient for 4 whole fans. You might consider replacing it with one 2-fan splitter, and then get a 3-fan splitter to couple off your other fan header since you only have 2 headers
