EDIT: try cutting a small wire in half, strip both ends (so you have two small wires) stick one end of each little wire into the small holes for the red and black wires, then stick the red into the yellow on your molex connectors, and the black into the black on the molex, that should give you a good test

wow, bad luck with the open box, I had better luck with mine (ASUS P5NSLi) thankfully...

try it in the other motherboard fan controller (CHA or PWR FAN), if it works, then that one controller (CPU) is bad...

if that one doesn't work either, then you know why the other person returned it...

If that's the case, it's bad service on the vendor's part by reselling a faulty motherboard.

i really dont know whats going on. i think its the wire that connects the fan and mother board. but then again i tried connecting a diffrent fan.

when i jiggled the fan wire a little bit, the lights turned on and the fan jumped for a second. i really don't know. im going to look more into it tomorrow when i have time.

well if you wiggled it and it jumped, its a bad soldering job on the motherboard or it could be the fan controller, but best luck would be to RMA it, or if worst comes to worse you can always get an adapter so you can use the harddrive molex power connectors for the fan if you cant RMA it.

I think its the fan because I tried it in other computers and had the same result.
