When assembled the hole thing It started the CPU fan spontaneously. I only turn on the button of the PSU and the fan start spinning. This baffles me. Don't know what could be happening. Any idea?
That isn't good.
Hopefully its not a hardware problem... that would suck!

Starting to sound like the BIOS has some kind of problem.
I wonder if the BIOS needs an update?

I had an ASUS board that I used for gaming over about two years and one day the video would not appear. I tried everything from replacing power supply, swapping RAM, to unplugging everything and it turned out to be a Bad BIOS chip.
It never happened to me before and has not happened since.

Try updating the BIOS, if it will let you. If not, look on the motherboard and see if there is a removable chip. IF there is, you will be able to purchase a new chip on ebay and test it.
