Hi everyone,
I recently built a system.Everything was working alright until 2 USB 2.0 ports went bad and almost shorted the system. I was removing a drive from one of the ports and it led to the system shutting down instantly.
After this,I removed an extra fan thinking it might have overloaded the PSU (cheap and non-brand).
Now,the problem is that there is always a 5 second delay for the CPU fan to start after pressing the power button.
Is it the PSU or mobo?
Specs:
Intel i3-3220
Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H
Corsair 2 GB RAM
WD Blue 500 GB

a c 89 ) Power supply

What PSU do you have? A poor quality PSU can easily fry your entire computer and is the last place to EVER skimp out. The PSU could have already done damage to the motherboard.

On my Ivy Bridge and Haswell builds I noticed that the stock Intel CPU fan did not start for a while, from 5 to 15 seconds after power-up. I assumed this was because it was not yet hot enough to need the CPU fan running. Although you may very well have issues related to a cheap PSU, I don't think the delay in the CPU fan by itself is proof of this.

Thanks for responding. There was something wrong with the PSU,so I bought a Cooler Master Thunder 450 W.

Thanks for responding. Yeah,the delay is still there even after replacing the PSU.

The PSU you bought is pretty awful quality. It is likely no better than the unit you replaced. You want to stick with Antec, XFX, Corsair, Seasonic for PSUs.
