Anyone have this motherboard?

Do you have the psu power connected into 2 sli/xfre power connectors slots?
Is the CPU fan supposed to spin constantly?

Of course the CPU fan is supposed to spin, otherwise what is it's purpose?
I don't have my PSU connected to the 2 additional molex connectors, since I have a shitty PSU, and the cables are too short.

what could be the reason for the cpu fan not spinning?

Are you sure that you have plugged in the CPU fan power cable? If yes, try another one, instead of the CPU one, there might be one marked as PSU_FAN_1 on your motherboard.

You didnt plug in the fan, or the temperature of the CPU is so low that the motherboard thinks it does not need active cooling.

I just got this board today, upgraded from a Gigabyte H81.amp-UP that I somehow killed.  Same cards (R9 270x), same OS install (usb stick, BAMT 1.6.x) and I was getting about a 50+ Kh/s increase per card!

Only thing I changed was the board, cpu/ram (old ones not compatible with new board) and a different power supply.  I'm going to play with the settings a bit and see if I can get the cards to stably hash at 500Kh/s.  My last setup was getting 440Kh/s with a ton of tuning, so I was rather shocked.

I'm shocked too. My Gigabyte R9 270 is hashing at 480kh/s right now...
