Question about Evo 212 CPU fan

Recommended Posts

I just installed an Evo 212 fan on my computer. When I boot up my computer, however, the fan does not start spinning. Is it supposed to only start spinning at a certain temperature? Or did I get a defective fan?

 

I plugged it into the CPUFAN1 slot on my motherboard (an msi z97 gaming 3), and that was the slot my previous fan (the default one) had been plugged into. Any advice is appreciated, thanks in advance.

if it doesnt spin on bootup like your old one, it should start at a certain temp. run your pc for a few hours sitting next to it and see if it turns on at some point.

It should start up with your computer.  Try plugging it in to another case slot pin if you have one. (Should be like 3 of them on avg.)

 

If that doesn't work then it is probably defective.

Somehow, this worked.
