Question Should I return my HX620?

Just finished my build which includes a P35-DS3R , Q6600 G0 and a HX620. I enabled the alarm in the BIOS to monitor for PSU fan failure. Upon restart I'm getting a constant beep. I just got the PSU this morning and want to know if this means that it is already failing.

how is the motherboard monitoring a fan that is not attached to it in any way? i dont have this power supply but i would assume like most power supplies that it is powered from its self and not plugged into the motherboard. if this is the case then the beeping is because the motherboard is saying the fan is failing becuase it cant monitor so its picking up no fan at all.

King is making sense, I have the psu and it doesnt plug the fan into the motherboard besides the 24pin.

ok cool. I had initially thought that it probably detected the fan speed through the four pin connection. I guess thats why I'm a Noob . Thanks for the insight.

Don't worry you'll catch on soon enough, spend a little more time on the forum, that's what I did.
