So I was test building my system today outside of the case. The motherboard 'beeps' and fires up but the cpu fan doesn't spin. The GPU is also firing up just fine. I did all of the basic test steps (make sure everything is plugged into the right places, did a reboot, etc.) but I still can't get that cpu fan to spin. Any ideas? Just a faulty fan?
Also I should mention that the BIOS for my board boots up and displays on the monitor no problem. My inexperienced educated guess would assumed it takes a tiny bit of ram and CPU in order to make that happen, so the chip and memory are probably also solid. Everything looks fine but the CPU fan won't boot.
