Cooler Master Hyper 212 evo CPU fan error HELP!

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
Hi,
I just bought a CM Hyper 212 evo to substitute for my stock heatsink that came with the processor. When I installed it I get some text saying 'CPU Fan Error, Press F1 for setup'. I don't know whether I've installed the cooler wrong, although I am fairly sure I haven't, or if there is some compatibility issues... Can someone help?! The processor is an i7 2700k if that helps smile.gif

That's typically due to a CPU fan header having nothing plugged into it.

Probably have incorrectly installed the CPU fan. Check where you have it plugged in and make sure you're correctly hitting all three pins.

It's plugged into the mobo in the CPU FAN slot, and the fan is physically spinning..

That error means that your motherboard either doesn't detect your cpu fan or that the fan has failed. Check and make sure you have your cpu fan connected to the right fan header on you mb.

There is one that's labelled CPU_FAN and one labelled CPU_FAN_OPT.. I assume the CPU_FAN slot is the main one, and that's where I plugged the header in.

Check to see if you installed the fan in CPU FAN ?? or SYS FAN.

Mostly you may have switched them. I know the pins are different. But can happen .
post #7 of 37
hmmm do you possibly have any other fans that you can plug into that slot temporarily? Also is this a new build or was the stock heatsink/fan on there before this?

This. Most modern bioses/mobo's will allow you to disable the fan header. If the fan is spinning you should be fine.

Yes I bought Hyper 212 evo with the pc, but I got the same error, so I assume it was faulty, so I sent it back and got a new one. I have the stock heatsink, but it's loud and annoying tongue.gif I bought all the parts and built it myself just over a week ago.
