So this is my first build and I just (20 minutes ago) received my SeaSonic M12ii PSU. I took it out of the box and plugged it in and flicked the switch but the fan didn't spin. Does that mean that it's DOA? Or does the 24 pin plug-in have to be connected to the mobo for the fan to kick in?

Any information would be much appreciated :)

also - On some Seasonic PSU's the fan won't run unless it's actually needed, so don't be alarmed.
