    Heatsink Fan doesn't Spin Properly




      So I've just installed a new processor i5-6600 with ASRock H170 Fatal1ty Performance. Then, I plug the heatsink fan power into CPU_FAN_1. When I turn the power on, it doesn't spin properly like this: Faulty stock Intel i5-3570K CPU heatsink fan - Tiny spin every second or so - YouTube (credit to the owner of the video).


      Then, I try to plug it into CPU_FAN_2 (header number 2), and it spin yet has delay 2 seconds after I turn the power off. (So after I turn the power on, there is 2 seconds delay before the fan starts to spin).


      So, is my heatsink fan faulty? Or is it the motherboard?
