What do the wires go to?

It looks like a fan connector, part of the fan controller maybe? You would plug a fan into this connection. Can you follow the wire to the source?

Some other images of fan connectors: http://www.crazycables.co.uk/shop/images/T/l_70.268b.jpg
Generally the wired 4 pin connectors support temperature controlled fans. This is not common anymore so most fan controllers have 3 pins. These pins are for power and tachometer (RPM's).

Those other images helped, I didn't recognise them as extra fan slots and it wasn't listed on the specs for the case.
Thanks for all the help

I read Platypus's link above and in part 7 it does mention a fan controller with 3 channels. You should be able to plug in 3 fans and control them from switches on the case (I didn't see the switches but I assume they exist somewhere on the front).
Glad to help. Happy computing.

Well I am confused, in the pictures of the case I have seen no switches to control fans. I wonder if it is an add on part but the case is already wired for the fans. From this link it makes me think that you have to get the fan controller separately still no image: http://www.corsair.com/en-us/carbide-series-330r-titanium-edition-fan-controller

That was my main reason for asking where the wires ran to. If they came out at the other end in a space where they could plug into some extra accessory, then they would just be pre-wired for an option.

Front of case has a 3 speed fan controller switch.
Behind the convertibly Right or Left handed opening door is the centrally located 3 speed SP/TT Single Pole/Triple Throw switch that controls dc voltages (7vdc/9vdc/12vdc) to the internally located fans. If you have a simple build and not a huge hot graphics card you can get away with running these fans at a low speed for sub silent operation but if you need more flow of air or more cooling full power the interior fans can be ramped up to maximum speed and give the interior the full effect of all the available fans at maximum speed and cooling or you can just set on medium and get the best of both worlds.

Ah yes! Even though I found information about the case, it was very late at night and I couldn't spare the time to study up on it or do further research.

Ah so the three cords have speed functionality through that little slider on the front. So all up six fans can be installed?
3 in the motherboard, and three in those front case cords?
I couldn't tell from looking where the wires lead, just in a jumbled mess at the front top of the case.
