Well, I got my components today and decided to build the computer. When I breadboarded the system, the CPU fan was working just fine. However, when I installed the motherboard into the case and connected all the corresponding cables in accordance to my motherboard manual, the CPU fan won't spin. The PSU fan spins for a min or so, then turns off. What could be the problem?
I found out the solution. I accidentally forgot to connect back the 8-pin power connector. However, I now have another problem. My case LED fans light up, but don't spin. The case is a Corsair Carbide 500R.
I thought it was a bit weird that I couldn't easily pick that out on the board, but I figured it was the small low rez photo. I figured if your computer came on for like 60 sec it must have had the CPU power plugged in, but I guess not so.
