That's the problem in a nutshell. I have 3 fans plugged into it, the 2 that came with it and another Antec one. They all work on the low setting (5V) but on med (7V) or high (12V) they all shut off. The power supply is an Antec 750 watt. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

Weird, try unplugging the Antec fan and see what happens.

Is this a new build or something that's just started happening after working fine for months etc?

It's an existing roughly 4-5 year old build (i5-2500K, Gigabyte Mobo at 4.4 Ghz on air) that's gone from an Antec 300 with no USB 3 support and no SSD space to this Fractal R4. I unplugged the Antec fan right off the bat when I first found the problem, changed nothing. I'm guessing it's either a bad switch or the Antec PS doesn't like that 5V - 12V combine to get 7V thing they do. This thing has been rock solid since I put it together and still benchmarks within 10% of newer i5's so I'm thinking it's a case problem since that's all that's changed.

Yeah I'd be shocked if it was the power supply, definitely sounds like the fan controller in the case itself is acting up. As an alternative, you can always plug the fans into your motherboard and control the speed.

Agreed. If 7V and 12V are acting up, it sounds like the 12V connection to the power supply has opened up.
