Default Asus Maximus IV , Case fans not working


I have a Asus Maximus IV Gene Z Mobo with Raven RV02 PC Case.

There are three bottom fans, Only the one in centre is working and the other two aren't. CPU Fan is working, here is the legend pointing out the ports where I plugged in the wires for the bottom 180mm or 120mm fans.

First Fan : Light Blue Color (Not Working)
Second Fan : Light Green Color (Working)
Third Fan :Orange Color (Not)
CPU Fan: RED Arrow (OBV Working)

Pls let me know if I am doing something wrong.

My System Specs


Check that fan control is disabled in BIOS, AP181's have a fairly high starting voltage. If your motherboard is trying to undervolt the fans, it might not be providing enough voltage to start up the fan.

are all 3 switches for your fans in the top of the case set to high?
