CPU Fan Stops Spinning After Windows 7 Boots
I built a computer, and I am using a Core™ i5-3570K Processor w/ Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H Motherboard, and I am using the stock CPU Fan (that comes with the Processor), I noticed that the CPU Fan only spins when the computer is booting, then stops spinning when it has finished booting (when windows has fully loaded). When I go into my BIOS Settings, the CPU Fan still spins. But when it boots Windows, it suddenly stops. I have tried unplugging my CPU Fan from the motherboard and plugging it in again, but that doesn't seem to fix it. It is in the correct socket... does anyone know how to fix this? I'm quite sure it's a BIOS Settings Issue (please let me know if it is not), if it is how to do I fix it from the BIOS?

You should be able to enter the Gigabyte BIOS by holding down the delete key while booting.
Then look for "load optimized defaults" or "load failsafe defaults" or something similar. Save and exit.
It may not help.
Have you knowingly made any changes in the BIOS?
You built it 2 days ago. Were you able to get to a desktop without freezing and do some normal stuff at that time? If so, I'd assume the fan was spinning. Intels are supposed to shut down before heat damage can occur, but I'm not sure if they can operate at a light load without a fan without reaching critical heat levels and shutting down.
Is that fan a 4 pin fan and does the CPU fan header have 4 pins? I assume the fan connector cannot be installed onto those 4 pins in any other fashion, such as rotated 180 degrees?
