500R Fan switch defective? Not realy!
I just put together my new system with a 550r case. All went well until I noticed that the fan control switch was "stuck" and would not move. I sent in a trouble case to Corsair and am waiting reply.
Upshot: I removed the front cover and looked at the slide switch on the I/O module. The switch was fine and I could set all 3 positions.
Problem: When you remove the front cover the cover's exterior sliding switch falls down to the low speed location, and if the case's "real" slide switch is not also in the low speed setting when you replace the front cover, the exterior switch will not engage the slide switch properly and be "stuck".
Remedy: Set the slide switch to the low (bottom) position and then install the front cover. Worked for me.
