    Faulty Gigabyte DS3 Motherboard ?

    Hi there,

    I recently bought a few PC components off of you last week, of which included a GIgabyte DS3 Motherboard.

    Firstly the fan headers seem to be dodgy, the fan on the stock Intel heatsink doesn't appear to spin properly and neither do the other 4 fans i've tried.

    As well as this the motherboard doesn't boot, i've made sure everything is connected and seated properly but still no luck.

    Would I be able to RMA this ?

    Item is in pretty much new condition, i've been testing it outside of the case and all the cables and backplate haven't been opened.

    Thanks in advance,

    Dan Phillips

    with regards to the fans not spinning properly the ds3 has some issues in general with fan control, so that wouldnt be a faulty mobo - i have a ds3, my fan basically only spins when my cpu gets above a certain temp. my system is inside an antec 900 case so it is extremely cool normally so im not really surprised my fan never spins unless playing games. just a heads up.

    Ah right thanks for info, i'll check that my graphics card and RAM aren't faulty then i'll send another RMA request (heard nothing from this mornings one - and yeah I know it was only this morning but I need a working PC pretty quickly, have my A Level coursework on it :/)

    EDIT: After palying around with my PC and removing/adding components from another PC I think i've fixed it, PC now boots but I have no idea what I did that fixed it :/ lol anywho thanks for the help
