Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
My take on the entire lie is this, you're being far more shitty to her than you even realize to the point that it was easier for her to lie to you than to deal with whatever hell you would make her homelife like for telling you the truth. Its much easier to go around the issue rather than live in a hostile environment.
Flatout you need to take a good hard look at your relationship because I have a feeling that if you continue to flip your shit it will be the beginning of the end. You both have issues that need to be resolved and none of us are going to be able to do that just hearing your side of the story.
The cable is permanently attached to the fan part, so no problem there. As for the motherboard connection, I've replugged it twice now. Also, the fact that they spin up for a bit on boot means they're getting power.
You have to start small, I've had cables come apart so it was only getting power incrementally and was beating my head against the desk trying to figure it out. As said check settings and more than likely pick up some new fans and replace them.
