I just received a cooler master v6 yesterday and installed in my case. the instructions that came with it sucks!
after the install im still left with a bag of goods that i honestly dont know if it was...
On the mother board there are plugins that are used for fan only and nothing else. They are usually located next to the CPU three prong pin inserts. They are programmed to receive information that also includes the thermo read a well you have to have a 3 wire fan setup one to power the fan and the other to read the CPU and fan Temp as well as the speed of the fan. If the fan is not a three wire fan your computer will go on the bleak and will not be able to read the Thermo or the speed configurations.
It is imperative to place the fan in the proper portion of the mother board with the three wire connection in order. In some cases you have to reset the BIOS to be able to read the new fan configurations. Also with this said since you have mentioned that the fan will not spin at all and the other ones do you may have a defective fan. Not sure where you got this but if it will not spin do not install this fan. Check the wiring and also on the mother board it will say CPU fan only or Fan or Fan for CPU make sure that you have the right fan slot. If all else fails you can strip just the rubber on the wires and wiring them together not recommended to get the fan to work for you if you are insistent on using this new fan. If it works from wiring them together you may get a reading on the BOOT fan failure.
Get a fan that works for your board configuration and one that you know works before installing a new fan. This is all I can tell you without seeing the computer itself. Thanks for using FixYa! John
