Help with zerotherm nirvana pleeeese

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just swapped my dual core for a Q6600 and put this zerotherm nirvana in, it is supposed to have a manual fan control, but they guy I got it from didnt have it anymore. So it has a 3 pin out, my ASUS has a 4 pin cpu fan plug, I took a 4 pin extension hooked it to the fan and to the 4 pin plug on my board, booted fine, but it will only run at its slowest default speed even using bios or software to try to adjust it stays at 1654 rpm. Now I took the extension off and plugged the 3 pin from the nirvana into a 3 pin chasis fan plug on my board and it runs full speed 2566 RPM which is what I need to keep the overclock cool, but now I get CPU FAN error on boot and have to hit F1 to continue, is there a proper fix to this or just ignore it?

I would ignore it unless temps are off cause the nirvana has a high wattage dissipation level like 150 watts, so if the temps are bad it might not be running at 2600

I would just ignore it, you should be able to disable the warning in the BIOS or hook the fan up to the CPU fan header. 3 pin fans are designed to be able to hook up to 4 pin headers and just use the other pin.

The thing is when I hook the 3 pin up to the 4 pin cpu fan on my board it will only run at 1600rpm, no matter if I try ASUS fan xpert or speedfan, or bios, they all detect around 1600rpm as fastest, yet if I put the 3 pin into the 3 pin chasis fan plug on my board it runs full speed 2675 rpm which is what I want, but I cant stop the beeping and cpu fan error, I can disable f1 on resume but cant stop the damn beeping and cpu fan error. Thought there had to be a right way lol
