  1. Are you sure that you plugged it into CPU_FAN socket or CHA_FAN?
  2. Check the cpu fan control setting in the BIOS.
  3. yeah i opened it up and looked, the cpu fan is out of control however there is no other way to plug it and it IS in the right spot, so im gonna try to find the bios, thanks for suggestion

    I answered this on the first post of the duplicate...

    BIOS CPU fan PWM control may not be on. This defaults the fan to 100%.

    Go into the BIOS of your new MoBo and make sure the CPU fan is set to Auto or PWM. It is often under the PC Health section where it reports voltages and temps. Consult your MoBo manual BIOS setup section if you have trouble finding the setting.
