Akasa Flexa FP5 PWM Fan Splitter cable - no CPU signal - Page 2

post #11 of 13
If the 5-socket Akasa is like the 3-socket Akasa, you will have five four-lead sockets, only one of which will have four wires. You will need a fan connected to the 4-lead/4-wire socket to tell the mb there is a fan producing rpm's. If you have three fans connected to 4-lead/3-wire sockets the mb has no way to know there is a cpu fan.

The 3-socket harness has room for three fans, so one will perforce be connected to the 4-lead/4-wire socket. With a 5-socket harness you have opportunities to miss the 4-lead/4-wire socket, and only put the fans in the 4-lead/3-wire sockets.

As previously mentioned, the only 4-pin connector has a pwm fan attached.

For some reason CPU fan termination is not recognized when using this cable, which triggers the bios error. You might try running a ground from the fan to the CPU fan header (like it is when only one fan is used). If that does nothing try switching around your fans.
