This is a quick and dirty reponse and not one that I have a chance to research yet, so please take it with a grain of salt. The 4 pin connector that you mentioned earlier was used by Intel processors. The power supply could with this connector supply power directly to the CPU in a more stable, reliable manner by some assumptions. I never really worried about it myself as I used mostly AMD processors and still do every chance I get.
LIke I said this is a quick and dirty, I'll get back to you later today with more details once I see more about your motherboard and what it runs, Intel or AMD.
Every bit of information is important, don't leave me in the dark, okay

What made you change the power supply to begin with? Most cpu fans run off the motherboard, but the motherboard initially gets all voltages from the Power supply to begin wth. Did you assume that because cpu fan wasn't running to begin with, that the original power supply was bad. Not a bad assumption but one that needed verification before changing out a power supply. So it seems at this point that you have an unverified bad power supply, a possible bad motherboard, and a known good cpu fan. Plus at ths point you really don't know of the new power supply is good yet until you see something electrical run with it.
