Any blokes know where i can get my hands on a chip like this. Its the CPU fan controller chip.
Not sure if this is all the model number, its what was writen above it.
Sorry for the crud image quality, the digital cam cant stabilize properly on small things.

Looks like a mosfet. Well if you had some soldering skills you could replace it. That is if you could find the exact same chip.

Not sure that's the CPU fan controller. The words are corresponding to the 3-pronged plug right next to it. Have you tried running the board and seeing if it boots?

Yeah seriously looks like an overheated mosfet.

yeh i have soldering skills dw about that. I think its the fan controller, i may be wrong, but the 1st time this MB was is use, before it blew, the cooler was working, once it blew, the fan of the cooler didnt spin anymore. Everything else worked fine, i was able to boot into windows even play games, till the CPU got to 50c, wich was in about 30 seconds =P.
OR, it could have affected the 3pin plug also, wich explains why the fan dosnt work.

edit: info - the chip didnt overheat it blew. The fool that was building this comp plugged a 4pin cable from the psu into the 3pin fan plug, ><, he turnd on the comp and that little chip blew up. Thats what he gets for building in the dark.

Wow still works? Just connecy the cpu fan to a molex or buy a converter. But im skeptical on the further proper operating of the board. I'd RMA it.

If it IS in fact controlling just the CPU fan....Then just can an aftermarket cooler connect by molex, or a 3 pin adapter. Really simple fix. But as "Chosen" said.....I'd be skeptical.....

yeh man, totally trips me out that it works. I was just wanting to solder that chip back on for some fun. The board is siting in my wardrobe collecting dust, i was hoping to build another rig from this and have some fun with it. Ill test it out for a day see if it is only the fan thats messed up, if so ill hook up a w/c set up to this, no need for fans , shoudl work fine.
As for RMA.. nah, i only RMA if the product is $200+

I guess you could try the fix they were talking about. Since its worth a try if its only the fan controller that has died. I think its quite possible that there is other stuff fried other than just what you can see.

I had this motherboard that took a beating one night... some drunk teens go into a fight .. and broken the computer so i was called to fix or replace there parents computer as I did. Anyway the thing seemed to work ok once i replaced the powerbox just the PS2 ports didnt seem to work any more. I used it for a little while longer. As I replaced the peoples computer with a second hand computer of the same specs since I didnt trust this Mobo.

Anyway after a short period of time about 2 weeks the mother board had more and more things start failing. Blue screens. Eventually the thing just gave tonnes of memorie address errors and missing floating point variable stuff etc. (note different memory was used in testing.)


So. i managed to go completely off topic. Stuff it im posting this anyway.

Well, your best bet is google the burnt up chips serial # and buy it. Or fine a dead mobo with the same chip and transfer it.
