Is there anyway to do this without having to worry about my cpu, I don't want it to overheat and die, or am I just been worried over nothing?
I don't know of any other way unless maybe a new fan but I doubt that will solve anything as you said they tested the fan and its working.
You could try hooking the fan up to a different fan header on the mobo JUST FOR TESTING purposes and see if the fan stays on. If it turns off on a different fan header then shut the system off and you will not hurt anything..
Some mobos wont allow the pc to boot unless the cpu fan header is plugged in so keep that in mind. IDK the features of your board.
Other things to check
-Check and make sure the cpu fan is plugged into the CPU fan header and not the SYSfan1 etc..
Just be careful when testing, as long as you shut the pc off right after the fan stops spinning you will be fine. If you do get into the bios it has a place that shows the cpu temps.
If you do not feel confident in doing this then just take it to your local computer shop as I do not want you to mess up your pc.
