It doesn't mean one of your ran sticks is bad, just that the settings on the bios don't work with the settings required for the ram. Kinda like trying to boot with bad CPU oc settings. Your ram is prolly just fine

My computer seems to be running at the moment.
3 pin???
You should plug it into a 4 pin on your MOBO labeled CPU_Fan or something similar, because you need the fourth pin for PWM!

Make sure of that. If you can't find it, i'll be happy to help.

As to your RAM, if it isn't giving you RAM specific erros now, I wouldn't touch it so much.

The heat sink that I'm using has a 3 pin connector.

Please go get a 4 pin :S I think you need it for automated control by the motherboard. ÇOthers, please correct if I am wrong. Where is this 3 pin connected to?

The board may have a four pin fan connector for the cpu but it should work with the three pin connector. the clip on the board cpu socketwill align the fan conncetor so it is connected to the correct three pins of the four pin connector.

What do you mean by, "Go get a 3 pin"

Some sort of 3-4 pin adapter? Or a new heat sink altogether?

You should connect this fan to something labeled CPU FAN.
PWR FAN is for the PSU. What heatsink is this?
Try plugging the fan header into another header called CPU FAN on the mobo.

Thermaltake V1

How would I go about plugging the 3 pin into the 4 pin CPU FAN port?

UPDATE:

I Plugged the fan into the CPU fan port, and attempting to boot afterwords gave me a bluescreen. I saw a brief mention of a pagefile error before it shut down. Further boot attempts gave me more bluescreens that didn't shut the computer down, but didn't list a reason for the crash either.

I plugged the fan back into the PWR Fan 3-pin port, and the first boot led to an endless black screen saying "Loading asus express gate" or something along that line. The next boot attempt led me to the windows startup repair, which failed after 20-30 minutes of working.

Booting after the failure gave me the previous CPU FAN Error message, and the booted normally without an issue.


I am utterly confused now.
