I am using a brand new Corsai VS450 psu. When I connect it to the motherboard and a hard drive for a test, the fans does not seem to turn. But when I try testing it out with the paper clip method the power supply works perfectly fine. Is it the motherboard or the power supply?

The 120mm fan is thermally controlled, so it only spins up when needed, and is quiet even at full load. The VS450 is 80 PLUS rated for greater efficiency, so it generates less heat, and you’ll enjoy lower energy bills.
