CPU Fan Error and Fan controler not powering all the fans

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, this is my first build computer. When I turn on my computer for the first time, and press DEL to take me into bios, before going in the bios a black screen appears registering all my components hooked up, but then it pauses and says "CPU Fan Error, Press F1 to continue." I have a Corsair H70 pump hooked up to my CPU with the power wire that powers the pump hooked up to one of my motherboard Fan connectors.

My other problem is I have a 4 channel Lamptron FC5 v2 which holds 30 watts per channel and when I turn on my computer, only one of those channels will power my fan. I have 2 three way fan splitters hooked up to 2 channels and a 2 two way splitters hooked up to the other 2 channels. The rest of the fans in my case won't turn on except 1 channel. I'm new at this.

1. Put your hand on the pump and make sure it is actually working. That error is to inform you that your CPU cooler has failed before something cooks. Are the temps on the CPU okay in BIOS? Does the pump have a 4 pin connector? I've never used one of H/whatever coolers, so sorry i can't be more help.

2. Fans have a starting current draw higher than what they actually run on. Make sure you have your fan controller turned all the way up. If the fans still don't work, try connecting each one up via a molex connector to see if the fans are faulty.

Yes, the H70 Pump is not working. Maybe my ASUS motherboard has it set up where it automatically detects fans in BIOS and because I have a H70 pump with a 3-pin hooked up to one of the 4-pin fan connectors onboard it's giving me that error. Not sure. Also only one channel on my fan controler is working, the rest isn't.

You get CPU fan error because you aren't using the 3 pin for CPU_FAN. That is all, In bios you will find an option to Continue through that CPU Fan Error message so you don't have to press F1 everytime.

Usually in BIOS you can set your fan speeds. Connect the 3 pin fan connector the the header labeled for CPU fan. Connect the pump up either with a molex connector (as in straight to the PSU for a full 12v) or connect it to a mobo fan header and make sure that header is set to 100% in bios. If that fails RMA. At least the 990x's come with a pretty good cooler so you can still use your rig in the meantime.
