From the sticky i did learn that i did not connect the 2X4, but now have; unfortunately it still does not work.
Also from the Mobo's book, it says that "The power connectors are compatible with power supplies with 2x2 12V and 2X10 power Connectors. When using a power supply providing a 2X4 12V and a 2X12 power connector, REMOVE THE PROTECTIVE COVERS FROM THE 12V POWER CONNECTOR AND THE MAIN POWER CONNECTOR ON THE MOTHERBOARD. do not insert the power supply cables into pins under the protective covers when using a power supply providing a 2x2 12V and a 2X10 power connector.
I have no idea what a protective cover is and whether or not my mobo has them on or not. My PSU is 2X4 12V and 2X12.
CPU fan not working? check two things: is it plugged into the CORRECT mobo socket? And, it is plugged in the right way? Usually there is a 3-pin connector on the fan cord and a matching set of pins on mobo. Usually also you cannot plug it in with the connector reversed, but look closely anyway. If the mobo socket or fan connector is 4-pin and they don't match, look up the mobo and fan makers' websites to see how to handle that.
If these still don't help, you could try examining the BIOS Setup screesn to be sure the CPU Fan control system has the fan Enabled. You may have to hurry, though. Once you turn on the system with no CPU fan running, it won;'t take long for the CPU heat to raise the heatsink temp enough to cause the CPU protection system to shut you down. Then you will need to wait a while for it to cool off. Alternatively, see if you can rig a temporary cooler - maybe a pistol-grip hair dryer set on No Heat and blowing over the CPU heatsink.
