I would have to move one of the CPU fans to a different header, but I ran out. The mobo has a total of 6, and they are all used.
But I have found a way. I have ordered a Lamptron Touch, which controls up to 6 fans independently, which I'm about to go and pick up.
Once I have everything installed I'll post some pics.
The one thing that is troublesome, is that the CPU fans run faster than the top fan, so they are blowing heat up that must surely being reflected back into the case.
I can't orient the CPU cooler front to back (The rear fan spins at 1100rpm, closer to the CPU fans), because the G-Skill memory profile is too high.
