I've just installed my FTW3 and PowerLink, and found it stopped the end fan from spinning.
Dont install Precision x before adjusting the power link. As you need to pull it away from the card to leave a gap to clear the fan.
The Precision x software will do a firmware update to the fans and push each one to 100% and will cause it to grind on the PowerLink.
It looks like when the PowerLink is installed it can push the orange and black power/fan cable into the fan stopping it. So just check that you have adjusted this before powering up.
