what power supply do i need to get for this board. I believe I bought the wrong item. I got Ultra 600w X-Finity Power Supply w/2 80mm but I notice the fan is not spinning in the power supply.

This question came from our site for professional system and network administrators.
Fan is not spinning on the power supply? It could be DOA. Or you may have not set it up correctly. Do the motherboard fans/lights start up?
To know what your motherboard needs (power wise) you should read your motherboard manual. (Link below)
600w should be enough to run your MB but also take consideration into what other components require power too.
The fan inside the power supply is usually not controlled by the motherboard. As long as the motherboard make the powersupply 'on' then the fan should spin. Sound like it is broken
