  1. I am having a problem with a cpu fan failure. I can not get it to work using the
    mobo. Can I run a fan off of the psu? Can I buy a controller to operate it also?
    What does everybody think?

    most of the time if you have any problems with the stock cpu cooler you just buy a new one.

    Sorry I was not more clear. The fan is good. Whats happening is the fan will
    come on during boot but then it will shut off. I have no idea how to fix! This
    problem came up when I changed the mobo and put the old fan back in.
    Any advice?
