Default Tuniq fan not spinning

Now, this may be a stupid question, but why is the fan in my Tuniq not spinning? Does it only spin when it needs to? Right now, my idle temps according to CoreTemp are 30 celcius, but before, they were MUCH lower. (around 12) and now for whatever reason my fan stopped. Should I try plugging the fan into a case fan slot rather than the cpu fan? I just want to know all this before I overclock etc.... Thanks.

12 c is a great temperature, im sure there is some feature which you can just make the fan spin at a stagnant pace like 2000 rpm, 1500 at all times.

check in the bios to see what form of fan control is enabled, if any.

and if CT said the CPU was at 12C, it lied, unless your ambient is below that O.o

Don't worry untill you go above 60C load.

set it to manual in the bios so it runs 100% all the time, and then just use the PCI bracket that comes with the cooler.

EIST is speedstepping, a powersaving feature that decreases your CPU's multiplier when it isn't being stressed... pretty sure it has nothing to do with the fan O_o
