Any fan in the computer should always spin, otherwise it is pointless. I would open the case to see if it is even connected to the board. If it is, it probably needs replaced.

Hi Amir,

If that is the rear case chassis fan (and not the PSU fan, usually gaming towers PSU is located at bottom?),
then you should be able to connect it to the 4 or 3 pin connector on the motherboard.
(Please refer to your Asus motherboard layout for location of these connectors.)


Your motherboard has: 2 x Chassis Fan connector(s) (1 x 4 -pin, 1 x 3 -pin)

It is better that your case airflow is correct, so the fan is best operational in order
to achieve this as this fan usually expels warm air from inside your case.

cheers

Okay the chassis fan connector is located at the Top left(as you look into the case)

I have marked the location in red on the diagram:

My guess is that it is the rear exhaust unplugged. Is it possible to take another picture? As that one is somewhat blurry.
