Yet another faulty RIVE!?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Just finished installing another RIVE, about the sixth now (the last had a short on one of the ram slots), and have found that this too is likely faulty!!! Basically the motherboards fan is not turning, it's completely dead! I've can see that it's plugged in, and I've given a gentle press to make sure it's seated fully. I've also loaded 'safe defaults' in the bios... Has there been a bios update, something that sets it to come on if it gets too hot, or have I just got another duff board?

Six boards?!

I sure hope you check your other components to make sure it's not something else that's killed the boards.

And there is an option in the BIOS to turn the fan off completely, so that very well may be set. I've never ran with the stock heatsink so I can't really say specifics.

This time, I've installed with a new AX860i PSU, and a new H110 cooler. I did the self test on the AX860i, got the green light.

I'm massively angry, I want to rage at an Asus rep; how can they sell such an expensive board, and yet have so many QC issues? All the wasted hours, evening lost, just putting the board in, only to have to take it back out!!

Wouldn't a bios reset have put the fan setting back to normal, I'll check the setting any how?


btw my previous PSU was a AX850/H100i. PSU checked out fine on my PSU checker... Also, most my issues have been with shorts, that and usb issues...

PCH fan is set to auto. I tried other modes, even stuck it on performance; nothing... Do you reckon it's a lame duck then?

If the rest of the board works I honestly wouldn't even pay attention to it. It doesn't really serve any purpose. There is a reason the new black edition doesn't even have a fan.

The chipset only uses 5-7w I think it is and the heat pipes don't really transfer enough heat from the VRMs down to the fan well enough to even bother.

I'm just blown away that you've had that many issues...

The new bios disables the fan until 85c you can control the pch fan via bios settings as well now

The bios change log has it listed as a rather nondescript '80 degrees'; is that fahrenheit, or celsius? All the temps are given in celsius within the bios, but Americans tend to use Fahrenheit...?!

80c would seem very hot, as the auto protection level is set to 90c...
