PSU works fine. WITHOUT the psu fan connector plugged in...

How does this happen? I'm not very smart with computers or electrics but for some reason when i built my new rig i noticed the computer had no problems when turning on without the psu fan connector but could not start up at all with the connector plugged in at all... To avoid the risk of burning my computer, house, self to bits and pieces please lmk on a fix . I'll try to give as much descipription as you all need. Will be at work for next 6 hours or so so be back then.
