lol no worries mate. I'm from England and I still use Celsius eitherway ^^ I googled 77 Fahrenheit and that's apparently 25 Celsius, which is perfectly fine. If that's the case, then all is well smile.gif

So if the CPU error is still there.. are you sure you connected it to the right 3-pin connector?

If you did connect it there then you just need to disable the message. You can do that by going here.

I think 700rpm is optimal when the CPU is at idle. Not sure though.. Would be nice if someone came along to confirm.

Alright, well I will make sure to look for a solution. I was only really concerned with my temps. And it turns out the computer surpasses the builders intelligence. Than you very much again Rich.

Even if thermal paste wasn't applied correctly you shouldn't get fan failure error at bios.
Make sure your fan is connected to a 4 pin CPU_FAN so bios can do full speed test at the start or in the case SYS_FAN socket.
