CPU fan error!

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
I've got a Tuniq T-120 and I'm getting a CPU fan error, before I RMA this thing, does anyone have any suggestions about what might be my problem and how to resolve it?

connect the fan wire to the motherboard XD

A friend of mine has this same error pop up on boot. The fan wire is plugged in and it runs fine, it's just that the error is kind of annoying. I was wondering if there is a solution?

I don't know what you mean by XD. But, of course the fan is connected to the motherboard.

As long as the fan is on just disable the error message in your bios

the reason for this is that the fan is moving too slowly. go into bios and try and find an option to disable fan speed alarm or something like that

The fan does come on that's correct. It ask me do I want to ignore the message. However when I do then I go into the BIOS it shows the fan speed in RED and my CPU temp is 87.5 degrees Fahrenheit.

This is this a problem, right?

Is this warning me to something serious? Does the fan need to be moving faster?

I would definitely have to say so. I don't get that temperature with the fan off my heatsink. Are you sure it's seated correctly and you didn't splooge thermal paste all over it?
