Fractal Design Core 500 case fan

Hi,

I am doing my first build this morning and plugged everything into the motherboard and did a power check. Everything seems to be working (BIOS, motherboard, and CPU fan) but the rear case fan isn't spinning. Should it always be on or does it need to reach a certain temp. Couldn't find anything on the fractal site.

Thanks for any help...

Are you sure you plugged the fan into the motherboard?

Have you tried plugging the fan directly into the power supply?

plugged it in right next to the cpu fan, which worked. How can I plug it in directly to the PSU, I don't have a connection?

Here's the build for now: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/6474Hx

Although for anyone who wants this case, DO NOT get this motherboard; the rear SATA plugs are blocked by the PSU, so I will be getting another one.

So I take it that the fan should have started spinning immediately...

Thanks for the help.

Cheers for the heads up about that Mobo and case combo.

Go into your bios/uefi and check to see what your Mobo is doing with the fan. Try setting all fans to fixed 50% and see if it works.
