Default Aerocool V12XT Fan Controller.

So i got this today, and hooked it all up, but it doesn't control my fans?

Is it faulty? or is it my fans, not letting me control the RPM.

Need abit of help please!

recheck all the connections to the fans and motherboard as per the manual, it's possible that something got missed

I have doubled checked, All i do is plug the fans into the fan controller (3 pin) and that's it. I can't lower the speed or make it faster.

What fans are you trying to control with this controller?

More than possible the controller isn't working properly. You can control the voltage going to any 3 pin standard case fan, which is how most case fans are controlled. Less voltage, less RPMs.

Yea, it's either that, or shall we mention user error?

Haha :P What could i possibly be doing wrong? I connected the 3 pin into the 3 pin, and thats that, and of course the power cable. Although, when i first connected it up, it didn't power up, i had to change the molex it was in.

Idk, maybe you're controlling the wrong thing on the controller? I've seen people make small mistakes before without realizing it. Although, this should be rather simple.
