Cpu fan going insane

So, i built a comp for the first time, not all to knowledgable in the whole process overall but i followed a good video tutorial throughout the way. Anyways, problem is, when i try to startup the comp, the cpu fan kind of goes insane. At first it clicks twice, not starting to spin either time, then it spins insanely fast for a few seconds, which is then followed by the system resetting. This is the first time i've worked on one of these and I just really want it to be able to run already. What exactly can be wrong here, and how exactly can i fix this and get it running?

  3. Still not sure what to do, not sure if getting a new heatsink fan would fix the issue.

    At least im thinking thats the psu. And I'll try that.
  5. No luck trying to boot without gpu, same issue same behavior. And so, would the psu be the actual problem in this case? Or do you just recommend the swap regardless?
  6. oi cheaper soulution if you don't wanna get the corsair (expensive woo)
    + try reseting the cmos on the mobo and see if that helps
    tutorial (not me)
  7. get a friend who has done built pcs before to come have a look.

    from what your describing you are likely to damage something otherwise.
  8. i've already stress tested my own raidmax you obviously haven't work at a microcenter they have some good one in it's brand not all apples are bad
  9. then this a standerd quality apple no more no less mate runs pretty well almost good as a corsair
  10. you knwo i would stop and agree with you right now but on some buidl for my friends we actually buy the corsair psu and a couple of doa and burnout mate not all things are perfect
  11. well i do my share of snooping around we both have two choices and if opnions really matter it should be the forum master's opinion
