*Maximus IV Gene-z/gen 3 motherboard
*i5 2500 k (stock speed and fan)
*Corsair Vengeance 16 gb 1600 mhz
*Saphire HD 7850 OC
*WD Blue Caviar
*Seagate 620 W PSU Semi-modular (one of the recommended ones here)
It has been running fine, but ever since I finished the assembly I noticed the cpu fan (it is the stock fan), will always at the start spin about 90 degrees stop, spin 90 degrees stop and then finally start (all this takes about 4 seconds), it always does this. After that it runs fine, however It looks like it takes a bit longer to get into bios because of this, takes about 3 to see the first bios screen.
I don't know if this could be an issue with the CPU or the Motherboard, or if this is just normal. Originally my pc would not start so I posted about my issue at the official ASUS ROG forums, it would get the normal boot beep, but I would not get any video output from the on board hdmi, turns out I just needed to connect the video card (didn't connect it because I wanted to see if everything was ok before connecting it)..., I also mentioned this problem in my thread but nobody commented on it, and at the end one of the community moderators said that it was all good and to proceed with the OS installation which I did.
The CPU temps seem normal, I get 29-34 idle, 45 - 55 gaming (although D3 Beta got to 60 highest), and a Blend Test with Prime 95 i got highest of 73 ran out for 1 hours 15 minutes no problems, temperature inside the case is 23-24. I have turbo enabled so during gaming and Prime 95 the it runs at 3.7 Ghz.
It has been running with no problems of any kind for 10 days now, with some moderate use, and a 5 hours continuous gaming at some point with no problems.
Anyway it always does the same thing will "try" to start 2 times and then finally start, could there be a problem here?.
It's probably worth testing, depending on the options besides Auto.
I just checked, I assume it was an AUTO, actually in BIOS inside the FAN monitor all I can set is something called CPU Q-FAN and it is disabled, what would that be?. Temperature was at 28 and fan speed at 2048.
