My cpu, system, and graphics card fans don't immediately come on after I turn on my computer. The graphics and system come on fairly quickly, but often the cpu fan won't come on until after i am in windows.

The temps are reported as being low and the cpu heat sink doesn't feel hot, but I was wondering is this a symptom of another problem or is it a normal thing that can be corrected through settings.

The Intel controlled fan won't come on unless the CPU goes above a certain temp. Not sure what it is but completely normal. :) 

It's in the BIOS settings, from memory its the smart fan function controlled by the fourth wire on the fan.
