I have a desktop computer that I intend to use as a Linux server. I assembled all components and the computer properly boots in Ubuntu, and works fine, however, the power supply fan does not turn down after the initial power on. On a previous computer I had, the power supply was starting noisy when turning on, but was turning down after few seconds.
I am not an expert in power supplies, but I have the feeling that either:
- Something is wrong with this cheapo powere supply (I got it with a case for under $50)
- Something is wrong with the configuration of the power supply. But I connected everything properly, and nothing in the BIOS setup forces the fans to always be on.
Any idea what could be wrong ? Can it be the power supply that simply does not turn fan off properly ? If this is only changing the power supply, I don't mind getting a better one at the local computer shop.
Addon: Is it possible of a power supply which does not have this setting to turn the fan down after a while ? I also noticed in the older computer that it did not have this four-pin connector that the new one has. It is actually also properly connected on the motherboard.
