Hey everyone, after close consultation with people here in the forums, I put together a build list and am currently building! (first time builder.) Here is my part list:

But of course, its not working. I'm now trouble shooting. Have plugged the power supple unit, a SeaSonic S12G-650, into outlet by itself, and fan is not turning. Do you know if it should be?

My own research on forums have shown me the fan is not supposed to be spinning until significant power use

Yes, that's one of the features of Seasonic PSU's. Until there is a significant load connected to the power supply, the fan doesn't spin at all. This makes the PSU very silent.
