    Hi guys, I done did somethin stupid. My PSU has a 4 hole connector just like my CPU fan and so I plugged it into the sys_fan prongs and now my CPU fan won't spin. I think I fried it. I realize now you aren't supposed to do this but I'm worried I fried the cpu fan header, but every other case fan runs on the molex connectors directly to the PSU. Everything else on my motherboard seems to run fine and I can boot up but that cpu cooler doesn't spin and I shut the PC off after reaching 80c degrees. Please help I'm worried I just broke yet another motherboard from my stupid mishaps. I already broke one by crushing a usb3 pin :(

    Wait, so you plugged a PSU cable straight into a sys_fan port in your motherboard?
