Hi Ceadderman,

yep that's what I did, made it so much simpler, as the bushes are liable to move about otherwise.

That shouldn't make any difference so long as the combined wattage doesn't exceed the wattage output of the header.


@Bun-ny... Oh I see what you're saying use them as posts to align the washers and remove and replace them one by one with the mounting screws. Makes sense. Thanks.

Well ***** beats me this is what i have on it or had Here i have two of them i put both on 1 header and every since i did i caint adjust any now

My Yates are 6w each and I've had 3 on the same header with no issues so a header should provide 18w of power. I kind of doubt those fans are more than 9w each. So the only thing I can think of is your setting is incorrect in the Pwr Managment setup. You might try another pair of fans if you haven't already though.

Hey Guys,

You do know that those fans are rated a 1.45 amps each.

That converts to....Attachment 223149

Might be to much fan for that header.

Damn! Didn't think they would rate that high.

Try hooking them up individually to independent OPT fan headers. Then, in BIOS set to USER and select 50% for each header and see how that goes. Each fan header is supposed to work up to 24 watts.

As a side note... something is up with my MOBO. RAM slots 1, 2 & 4 will not take any RAM. It gives me the "it lights up but does not post" crap. When I tried RAM slot 3 it allowed me to post and finally boot but the MOBO is OC'ing in a random fashion and all on it's own! It's ALIVE! It booted once at an overclock of 3.5. Last boot had me at 3.7, the boot before that placed my RAM at 800Mhz (total instead of my normal 1600) and so forth. Anothert thing I noticed was my NB voltage was up in the 1.5 V range when I had it manually set for 1.2 V. That's not a good sign. Oh, and all of this without my touching ANYTHING within BIOS. Another funny issue is that whatever is happening, Windows 7 is detecting "new hardware" and requiring me to re-activate my copy of Windows 7. How's that for baffling???

I am figuring either my MOBO is physically shot or my BIOS is corrupted somehow... and I am thinking (all though I did take precautions) that I may have discharged static electricity somehow... It's the ONLY possible explanation for such a sudden myriad of symptoms. Heck, last week I took it all apart to do maintenance on my water cooling system and a semiannual cleaning. Put it all back together and have been using the machine this past week with no issues.

I found this troubleshooting guide (and I highly recommend it for ANYONE having a problem of any sorts) by chance and ran through the whole check list. Even pulled and breadboarded the MOBO and the same thing.

And what caused this? I have no clue. All I did was pull out my GPU to re-seat one of the heat sinks on it and upon re-installing it, SHAZAM... all electron hell broke lose.

I am waiting for my local CompUSA to open up and see what MOBO's they have on the shelf. I may or may not be able to get my hand on another CH4F (depending on inventory) and since they are fashionably slow in getting the new breed of AMD boards in, no 990FX boards in sight either - Intel boards they are up to date but not AMD. Soooo... I may or may not (snif snif) be the continued proud owner of a CH4F...

And yes... thought about RMA'ing and all but at this point and time, Mrs. Kah and I need that computer up and frigging running. I "borrowed" my daughter's laptop while she is out taking the MCAT's today. Either way I'm hanging out here. Have come to make good friends and I have fun in this thread.

I stand corrected...

"Thou shall never doubteth ComUSA!"

As luck would have it, just as I arrive at the mobo shelves, the stocker is taking the first of 3 ASUS Sabertooth 990FX motherboards from the stocking cart and placing it on the syhelf. As soon as I saw it, I grabbed it scaring the kid to death in the process. He looked at me and just said that it was obvius that I knew what I wanted. I Looked back nd said "Yes, that's true. But if you want to really make my day, show me a Crosshair V Formula instead." - No dice. The only 990FX motherboard sold so far is in my hands...

So... I remain with ASUS motherboards. Once I take my mobo out I will contact ASUS tgo see if they will RMA it. If they do and it get's fixed, I will either build a second rig (for the wife) or I may sell it here at a nice discount. We will see... Right now it all depends on ASUS really.

Actually CompUSA is TigerDirect, same with CircuitCity and a number of others. - a pretty smart Italian guy whose name I can look up in case someone doubts me.

Dat's Right! Da Duck knows all!
