Hi,

I recently purchases this board and for some reason the fans are not spinning. There is no sign of life other than that I know the motherboard is receiving power because some lights on my GPU light up notifying when 6+2 directly from the PSU to the GPU are not connected.
The board is sold as a 1151 compatible board, but upon checking the compability list I saw that my I5-9400 is not in the list. Is it really not compatible with that CPU and is that a possible reason the cpu fans are not spinning?

Yes, the 9400 won't run on that board, same number of pins, different pinout. You
will need a 6000 or 7000 series CPU.

Ok, so with that particular CPU type the cpu fan will not spin either right?
Trying to figure out whether it is just the faulty CPU which I can replace or that the board itself has a problem.

I got the -9400 in there now, I guess if I get a compatible CPU and put that in all should work (as in inserting the -9400 doesn't ruin the pins?).

The 9400 is not compatible and has a different pinout so yes, it is most likely
why the fans are not spinning up. You will need a 6000 or 7000 series CPU. While
8000 and 9000 series use the same physical socket they are not pin compatible.
