Default ZALMAN Cooler troubles....

I have a weird situation goin on with my ZALMAN cooler. Sometimes the fan wont spin up. When i first re-assembled my system i had the Zalman installed and was looking forward to testing it out (since ive had it for 5 months lol) but the fan would just not spin. So i started to troubleshoot..... i tried connecting the cooler to an alternate connector (SYS_FAN) on the motherboard. No change. After i couldn't get it working i decided to put the stock cooler back on.... it works fine (in the CPU_FAN and SYS_FAN connectors on the MB). Just to test it out i hooked up the stock cooler to the CPU_FAN connector and the ZALMAN to the SYS_FAN and they both spin up just fine.... but when i take the STOCK cooler out of the equation the ZALAMAN doesn;t spin up everytime... Any ideas??
