Blue orb II Problems

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, new to the forums, thought i go straight in to it .

I have recently purchased a blue orb II. So i had to take out the motherboard (which was a big job) to place the mounting frame on. Everything was going sweet until i finaly got to turn on the power. When my PC tryed to boot, i got a POST error. It was short continus beeps meaning something to do with "power problems". I took the orb out, made sure that the thermal paste was on properly. To me, the paste looked as if it had moved away from the center and more to the edges on the HS only, (not of the cpu).

So i spead it out evenly agian and this time i didnt screw down as hard. But i still got the same prob as before. Also, the blue orb fan is a 3 pin and my mobo is 4 pin.Now my guess is that because the blue orb dosent have a 4th pin conector, it wont boot because the mobo cant sense the heat, so it stops it self booting to avoid damage?

I also have an arreogate 2, i decided to attach the blue orb to it, but still had no luck( aerrogate uses 3 pin connectors). But wat i didnt do was attach the thermal sensor to the aerrogate 2. So that could be also y it didnt boot. But before i go take the mobo out agian and try those things, i was woundering if anyone here could give me any other ideas to y it isnt working.
thanks, joe.

What do you mean by your mobo is a 4 pin? You mobo should have 3pin fan connectors on it. The big 4 pin connectors are molex which come off your power supply. The computer shouldnt mind not being able to tell the temperature since the thermometer is not part of the fan assembly. Maybe you issue is the fan speed sensor which is the 3rd wire on the 3pin connectors.

No, my mobo has a 4pin socket for the cpu fan socket only, and the the mobo manual says that the 4th pin is for heatsensing. The case fans run off the mobo sys_fan and cant rember the other one but the case fans run on a 3pin connector on the mobo.

Yes, i have tested the fan and it works fine. I got it going at 900RPMS to 1500RPMS in the aerrogate 2.
