Default CarbidE Spec Delta RGB case RGB issue.

I've recently finished putting my PC together with my new carbide case. The case came with 3 RGB fans in the front connected to a 3 way splitter. I connected that to the 5 pin 12v rgbw on my Mobo but only the middle fans RGB is working. All the fans are spinning and working but I can't seem to get the other two to light up.

That's not how they work and you may damage the fans or the fan hub by connecting it to that motherboard header. The case should come with a push-button controller for the SP-RGB fans.

Check out the RGB FAQ at http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=173880 as well.

My case definitely didn't come with a button controller, so I must be missing something.

There was no push button controller included with my case. What leads you to believe such an item was included?

I would like to know how you are addressing this. The little pamphlet included with the case does not cover this

Default Please help

My Case: Corsair Carbide spec delta came with three rgb fans which have all worked just never lit up. Gigabyte rgb fusion refused to pick them up, also, even though I have read it should. Please help! It never came with a controller, just an rgb splitter.

Actually, let me correct my previous statement - at the time I was unaware that these fans were not at all like any of Corsair's other RGB fans. I looked at the photos and mistakenly identified them as SP-RGB fans. They are not. They are, instead, 12V analog RGB that works with the 4-pin (non-addressable) Aura-style connections.

Now ... these won't be "picked up" by software. You need to tell the software that you have something on the header and how it should behave.

Where can you buy more of the same fans included if they are not sp120 fans?

Corsair has them in stock on their website. They are not available in any retail stores separately.
