Sounds like it, unless there is something funny going on in your bios.

Make sure there's nothing blocking the fan blades (like a cable from something else) then go into bios and see if you can set the fan speed to 100% to verify that it's working.

I my older Gigabyte board did that when I first started it up, the fan would spin, then stop. I cant remember off the top of my head which setting it was, but it was just a random BIOS setting that I had to correct...
Try clearing the CMOS, and if you can access the BIOS, quickly disable the Q-fan control and that 'should' do it.

***Found it! Put your CPU fan header on one of the 3 pin ones (this is temporary, I just want your cpu to be cooled while you change the setting), the go into your BIOS and under PC Health Status, disable the CPU Smart FAN Control***
