Hi. I recently put together a build in a Fractal Design Node 605. There are some things that I would have done differently, but for the most part all is well, and I learned a lot for my first build. I'm still deciding on a graphics card, and have some other things to setup so I'm not quite done yet. Here's the build so far - http://pcpartpicker.com/user/tkernan6/saved/48WI
Anyways I have two questions I hope someone can assist with.
1) The case has a 3 speed fan controller. However, it seems to change the speed on all of the fans in the case (I could be totally wrong though). I've got two rear exhaust and one plugged into the motherboard and the heat sink fan. The fans plugged into the connectors are 120mm fans on the sides. I think ideally I would like all of the fans to be controlled by the motherboard so that it uses them more if it's hot, and less if it's not as hot. I don't know if I'm just interpreting everything wrong. So any help is appreciated.
2) The front connections for USB 3, firewire, and audio. A couple of the wires for the firewire cords and the audio cords were broken so those aren't plugged in, but the USB 3.0 connector is. Only one of the USB 3 connectors seems to work. I've asked Fractal Design for a replacement of the whole assembly. I'm hoping that works. But I wonder if it's possible that the mobo is faulty in some way. I don't think so since one is working, but I'm just not sure.
