Cooler Master Hyper 212 evo CPU fan error HELP! - Page 4

post #31 of 37
Ok in your bios utility under advanced mode you should have a monitor tab. under that tab you should see a cpu fan speed low limit. Lower that to 200 rpm and the issue should fix as your fan spins slower than 600 rpm atm which is stock. Let me know if that works

I disabled monitoring of the header, and now everything seems to be working!! Thanks everyone!

I would try lowering the speed because if that fan fails the only indicator to shut down your system is the temp max which could damage your cpu if reached.

I lowered the CPU fan speed low limit to 200 as well and that seems to have worked as well!

That should be all you have to do
I just bought a new 212 evo to replace the old 212 + and I had to set mine to 400 in the bios then the boot f1 error went.
Setting had been 600 with the excalibur fans

I just wanted to create an account to thank you guys.

I just installed the Hyper 212 EVO & a new 850 watt psu on my pc last night, and got this fan error. Mine just said, "CPU Fan error," and didn't give me the option of pressing F1. I was too tired to try & figure it out then. I was switching from a stck heatsink on an i7 960 (which I got the same error on when it wasn't seated right), on an Asus Sabertooth X58 mobo. I cleaned & regreased it TWICE, as I saw the fan spinning and thought there was no way that could be it. I'm rather new to pc building (March 2012 I just built my 1st rig). I unplugged & plugged the fan back in (there is only one place for CPU fan, and it is a 4-pin pwm fan/slot).

I decided to search, and found this thread after cleaning & regreasing this morning - the 2nd time (although I did have too much on the 1st attempt, most likely). This time it did give me the "F1" option, so I went into the BIOS, but there was only a way to monitor it, turn it off, or switch it from silent/normal/turbo. The rpm's were in red, but no threshold setting. I saw the CPU temp was ~40 Celcus (was ~50 Celcius idle temps), so I decided to exit & try to boot again. IT WORKED. Maybe it just wanted me to check this before it would boot? Not sure, but I changed each option in "power management" tab, and then switched it back (as it was all on the best options).

I just wanted to share in case any others have the same/similar problem. THANK YOU guys for all the support you give to your fellow PC enthusiasts. It makes me happy I decided to go this route for my future gaming. Now if I can only get used to the m/k wink.gif.
