Problem with EVGA GTS 450: No signal - Page 5

post #41 of 44
Gregarious. You cannot keep this going. When you start to game, since the fan is not plugged into the CPU_FAN port, the motherboard will nto be able to control the spead. Ignoring RPMs will make it worse.
YOU MUST go and get a 4 pin fan to mount on your heatsink. YOu cannot have an empty CPU fan port or else you will fry your CPU

On Asus mobos the pwr fan header always supplies the connected fan with the full 12v. As in, whatever fan is connected to that header always runs at full. Therefore, the chance of frying the CPU is slim to none.

That said, it is not a good idea to do that permanently - an actual pwm fan really the best option.

I'm running ~56c at full load, not exactly frying temperatures

If the fan is always running at full, what makes it not a good idea to do this permanently?

That your fan bearings are going to wear out.
It is always better for your fan to run at a full 12v only when it needs (3hrs gaming) rather than all day (12-15hrs)

Also, by getting a PWM fan, you can get an even better fan, it's an opportunity for an upgrade
