I'm getting an error in reference to my CPU cooler

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
When ever i start a game i get the error "Warning: Your CPU fan doesn't work properly. You must turn off your system right now and check it!" It's driving me nuts because it will minimize me in the middle of a game right when i'm going to take a shot at someone and things like that, I've tried re-seating the cooler, I know the fan is spinning up plenty well. It may be my program eOC causing it?? I didn't overclock using that, i did that through the bios and i just use that to see what MHz the cpu is running at during a given time and see my cpu temperatures. Any recommendations?

did you plug your fan into the CPU fan header? There are a couple of places it can go but make sure it's on the CPU fan header otherwise it will constantly come up.

What heatsink do you have?

Right now I'm on my stock heatsync (I've got a bunch of newegg parts on the way to build a whole new computer) I'll give that a look real fast though.

Yup it's on the right header, there is only one other header on the other side of the board to get it mixed up with on this old thing x) Do you think it could be eOC that causes it? It's some stock overclocking tool that came with my mother board and i just use it to watch my temps.

Does the fan report a RPM?

On 3- and 4-pin fans, 1 wire is designed to report tachometric (RPM) information to the motherboard.

Yup, eOC is reporting between 2953-3171 RPM
