First build need some help, Antec Kuhler 920 fans arent spinning.

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Just completed my build (specs below) and computer comes up with Asus BIOS. All fans are working except my push / pull with Antec Kuhler. Bios says CPU fan failure. Now the Kuhler has power because the LED lights on the Kuhler are lit up. Says CPU temp is 97C so I shut it down. Why would the Kuhler fans not be operating? I have not installed any drivers or set up anything yet I just shut down when I saw no fans and high temps. Any thoughts? Or will it kick it once I install the Antec software etc?

The two fans are plugged in together and the wire goes right to the Kuhler which has power.

DOA fans ?

Is it a brand new cooler?

The fans should work if plugged in even without Software.

I just installed a 920 last night with no issues, sounds like you have pluged into your USB but have not plugged the other cable into the "CPU FAN" on your board?
It runs fine with out the software installed.

On a different note my LED Logo on the cooler stays on even when my PC is shutdown? Any idea's?

Have to agree with some of the other posts.

On the Kuhler 920, there should be a y-split cable. Two ends are for the fans, and the remaining end plugs directly into the CPU motherboard. I'm not sure if the 920 uses a 4-pin header or a 3-pin. My 620 uses a 3-pin, so I don't plug it directly into the CPU fan header.

Ok well I fixed that issue. Turns out on my mobo there are two identical pins that say cpu fan. The one on the right was the one I needed. Now it boots up brought the temps down to <48c and the system started up. Im sure with some software tweaking I can lower that by a lot.

New issue now is the software wont boot coz it says USB connector is not connected.

the manual shows pins like this:

X X X X X

X X X X

A 9 Pin connector is on my mobo but the pin on the Kuhler is 4 pin and the manual just shows some pictures, not very clear at all. Does it plug into the bottom part of this 9 pin USB connector? I have no clue... Good news is the PC posted and is running atleast smile.gif
