I just built and got my system up and running after all the problems I've had I'm new to this. Anyways, After about an hour or so of being up and running I look thru the window of my case and see the CPU fan wasn't even spinning. I thought "oh crap" I hurry and turned off the computer and it began spinning during the shutdown, so I thought good. Anyways, is it normal for the CPU fan to just stop like that while its on?

it should not stop. Keep a close eye on it and if it happens again replace it

I would say replace it now, if it fails you are looking a a definate replacement of your CPU.

Well I have the new amd64 with the asus k8t800 SKV mobo that has this cpu "cool and quite technology" feature that is suppost to control the fan speeds and etc. I thought maybe this bios feature shut it off because it thought the cpu fan was cool enough.

Slowing maybe but stopping I dont think so, especially as you have a nice A64 CPU which I am sure you dont want to fry.
