I recently purchased a 3 wire PSU fan for a project and was trying to power it using a computer power supply but it won't turn on.
I stripped 2 out of the 3 wires because I know the first 2 are the actual power supply wires, and the extra one just telling the motherboard how fast it's spinning. Since I'm using the fan for a hobby project and not for my computer I just ignored the third wire.
I connect the positive and ground to my power supply and all I get is one faint click sound from the fan? The power supply can provide 12V and 10A while the fan is rated at 12VDC and 0.2A. I don't think this should be a problem because I'm not forcing too much current? The fan can draw as much as it needs and the power supply just goes up to 10A.

Not sure what the problem here is so if anyone could help it would be great. Did I fry my fan somehow? Thanks in advance!
P.S I'm pretty sure I wired it correctly because the striped should be positive and the wire with lettering is ground. Image above are the three wires for reference.
EDIT: The fan is part of a cpu cooler with a part number of SE-902-SD
