ok so here it is, I have 3 cool n quiet controlls and 2 other monitor/power pins.

pwr Fan - PSU
NB - not used
Fan 0 - cpu
Fan 1 - rear Fan
Fan 2 - Front Fan

Now I had my rear fan orignally plugged into the northbridge controller that runs at full wack, so decided to go for the last cool n quiet socket which is to far away for the fan cable to reach. so I had some ends of a 3 pin to molex, removed the wires and manged to make an extension cable with all 3 wires in the correct way L N and the yellow control wire and plugged it into the board.

My bios says Fan 2 is running at 1500 RPM and Fan 1 at 800rpm, using a cool n quiet socket why is fan 2 still running at a noisy 1500? after all that rewiring for nothing :(. also AOD only picks up 2 fans, the cpu and fan 1. Fan 2 is greyed out?
