Make it so the fan controller gives 100% power to them. Then, after they start, you can turn it back on.

I presume the problem is that they aren't getting enough juice to start. It takes more power to actually start the fan than it does to keep it going.

DOOOOOD...
it took me twenty-seven minutes to download these pics.
and i still dont know s***.

lol jk

if none of your fans are working...erm, i would have to suggest that your controller is bad.
try pluggin one of your fans directly into the mobo and see if it works.

Is that a pci extractor fan i spotted? if so there rubbish!, well mine did next to nothing in my old case, infact all it did was make my pc more noisey, so i took it out in the end, then eventually got my new Antec 900
