Asus P6T Auto Shut down if pump fails?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Is there a way in the Asus bios to have the computer shut down if my pump fails? If so where is the setting?

I have my pumps sensor plugged into the CPU fan power pin, so it is tracked in the bios.

[QUOTE=russb123;5609419]Is there a way in the Asus bios to have the computer shut down if my pump fails?[/QUOTE

I gots no ideer about any setting on an ASUS mobo labeled water pump failure shutdown. ATM I only have Gigabyte boards and I plug my MCP350's blue wire into the mobo's HSF header and it'll shut the board off when it senses a loss of rpm in the pump. If I remember correctly every mobo manufactured since the last ice age has this CPU HSF rpm failure setting

On one occasion I failed to have the wire connected and had set the bios to ignore all errors during boot. I forgot to turn on my pump and fan PSU on resulting in no cooling for a Q6600 CPU (I have external pumps and rads on a separate PSU from my boxen). Thank God for the internal Intel automatic shutoff on the CPU. It shut itself down with absolutely no damage to the board, CPU or anything except my feelings. I've been using that boxen for over a couple of months 24/7 DCing with no problemos (that Intel silicon is hard to break )

DCing for the CURE

I dont think so. It will auto shutdown if CPU temps or NB temps hit 90c I think. Thats all I know. I have unplugged my CPU fan before and it didnt shut down.

I have to ask you since you have the same board as me. Does SLEEP work for you? I can recover from sleep mode, maybe 1 out of ever 2 times. Just curious.

Sorry, I have never used the sleep mode.

I guess I can unplug the sensor wire and see what happens. I bought a good pump(mcp 355) so I hope it will never fail me, but if it does I just want to be sure the system will not go boom if I am not around to shut it down manually.

Thanks for the responses.

I just got done talking to a guy at my work who OC'ed his i7 to 4.3 ON THE STOCK COOLER!!!!!. I know, he doesnt know any better. He was asking me why it would randomly shut down when he ran his rendering programs These boards do have a failsafe and it does work from what I can tell. I wouldnt go around doing this though because I think he may have messed up something. His computer wont boot up right and is acting really slow ever since.

I have not found anything in the BIOS that would shut down the computer if the RPM's of the CPU fan change. I think you guys are right and the only auto shut down is based on temperature (which I hope will never be tripped)

What software options are out there that can monitor CPU fan RPM and shut down the computer if it fails?

If its anything like other ASUS boards there wont be an option to shut down but there will be an option to sound a warning beep if it drops below a certain RPM.

If you go into your BIOS then into hawdware monitor there should be an option called 'CPU fan speed warning' or somthing along those lines.

With this option you can set the board to alert you if the RPM of the CPU fan ( Or in your case the pump ) should drop below a set level, if it detects that low level it will sound a warning tone warning you that there is a problem.

Hope that helps
