Yeah... this is true and also an issue. If this were the case then you need to see where the spikes are from. If we are talking from the house electrical outlet, this should be substantially reduced with a decent to good surge protector... preferably a UPS. If this surge is from the mobo (a short or something) then I'd be RMA'ing it ASAP. Here in Puerto Rico electricity is constantly spiking and frying electrical and electronic components all over the place. I guess that with the proper steps taken, I have been spared of this issue... so far.

Of course you wouldn't expect the RPM sensor to just up and quit working either. doh.gif

I agree. Unfortunately I have no clue what your issue could be other than faulty sensors at this point. The ONLY thing I can think of at this point, and this is if you are up to restoring many different settings, is to reset your CMOS completely and then see. If by doing this your RPM readings are back to "normal", then start playing with one setting at a time. Once you have it where you want, test the RPM readings to see if it's still there. One setting at a time until you come up again with the failure. One of two things would happen... you either find what's causing your problem or you find out its a sensor right off the bat.

QUESTION: (I haven't read all your posts on the issue so excuse me if you have already addressed this) but is the RPM reading missing on any particular utility software or on several utility softwares? If you are just using one software, try comparing to some other utility that also reads fan speeds. I have issues with PROBE II but not with Aida64 for example.


So anybody got any ideas with this RPM sensor issue I've got? Could it be a BIOS issue? I recently went over to 1304 because I've been having stability issues and flashed to the latest BIOS to give myself the ability to move up to Thuban if I feel like it.

I have had no problem to date with 1304 but I can't say this is the case with everyone. I have seen very little complaints with 1304 and that was sort of at the beginning when it first came out.

Basically Opt 2 just stopped reporting the speed of the fans that get plugged in there. If I had another header in that area that wasn't covered by my GPU(nitpicky gripe of mine) I would just move the fan to that spot and forget about it. Especially since I flashed a different Boot Pic into the Post sequence.

I am using OPT 2 (as well as 1 & 3) fan header with no problem.

Would like to know before tonite what I might do to fix the issue(if possible) or whether RMA would be the thing to do and if Asus is still doing hot swap RMA and what that entails. Thanks.

Hope you get this sorted out somehow and I really do hope it is in the fastest and easiest way possible. Like I always do with my cars... go back to basics and work from there. 80% of our error/mistakes/problems are all because we forget the basics.

NOTE: Just for s**** & giggles... try wiggling the fan wires while it is connected to OPT 2. Keep an eye on the monitor as you do this and see if you get any kind of a reading. if you do, you have a loose fan connector wire. wink.gif (basics... remember?)

I'll give the wiggle thing a shot but I'm not convinced this is the issue because I changed the stock fan out with the new one that I got last month. I thought along this line back when the stock one was plugged in because I sleeved it and pinched it between the MoBo and the Cabinet to connect it to the header that is covered by the GPU. I think that's Opt_3, if I remember correctly not having my manual handy. In fact it was having issues reporting on that one too, now that I think about it. I moved it to 2 because 2 was easier to access... *thinking here*

Hmmm it very well could be it cause I also had issues with the fan that I swapped over but only for a very brief period and it was on Channel_1.

Okay I'm more convinced now.

Thanks for the Fedback. I'll check in when I know a bit more.

*update* Yeah, no. No such luck. I wiggled the connector up and down as well as side to side and put some pressure on it in all directions and not one time did the RPM fluctuate. It's just straight up deceased.

+Rep for the help.

Understood... that would mean that if there were a reaction, it could be the mobo pin that's loose.

EDIT: BAH... Didn't read your last line. I have a new water problem here... washing machine. Need to take a break from here for a bit. In the meantime, the only thing I can think of right now is to also plug that fan into other fan headers to see if you get a similar reaction or not. If you have good RPM readings on other fan headers with the same fan, then it is definetly the MOB.

Yeah, Asus still does the cross ship deal, at least for US residents. http://service.asus.com/APS/

I did with my old Rampage II Gene and was quite pleased.

Good to know... Thanks.

UPDATE: Washing machine FIXED. Clogged air hose. Take out hose, blow into hose, re-attach hose. Wash. Rinse. Repeat with next load!

Hi,

I have a Crosshair IV Formula inside a Corsair 600T case. Everytime I plug in a usb 2 or even 3 device onto the front panel usb ports ( usb2 or 3) the system reboots!

Anyone have an idea why?

Thanks.

Guys is there anyway to have a 24/7 4Ghz AND have Turbo Core working?

Bastard thing doesn't work

Would love to turbo up 4.3Ghz when running dual thread games for an extra boost

I would assume there is a short somewhere. Double check all your cables/wires, make sure nothing unnecessary has contact with the board.

It's possible that you don't have a solid connection on the USB headers or you've mistakenly left a standoff under the MoBo(possibly loose one as well) or plugged a USB cable into the wrong place. I suggest checking the connection first since it can resolve two issues at the same time. If it still does it I suggest going back under the board and making certain there are no loose standoffs causing a grounding issue.

And then if it STILL does it I would take an Ohm tester and see if your cables have the correct resistance levels. I couldn't tell you what the resistance would be but I believe you would run it in DC mode and if there is no disparity from cable to cable they're probably going to be okay.

Hope this helps.
