Problem with cpu fan

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello all. Today i switched my cooler to the Coolermaster Hyper 212 to see if it fits my case, but when i opened it to see the temperatures, after it showed the full screen logo, it gave me a message that said "Cpu fan error, shoutdown to prevent damage", but the fan was working like a charm. What seems to be the problem? I think i can stop this error message from the bios but if this messge keeps showing, when i have my current stock cooler installed how will i make my computer go to boot?

If you're using a molex connector to power the fan, or if you've not connected the fan to the correct fan header, then you'll run into that problem and need to disable that message in the BIOS.

I think he must have connected it directly on the motherboard

Well, if it doesn't work after jiggling the connection, then you've got a bunk sensor. Happens.

Does your motherboard have a 4-Pin cpu fan connector?
Be aware that the BladeMaster 12CM fans have a very wide range of rpm, and can go as low as 600 RPM. Your motherboard might be detecting 600RPM and have an alarm activated for when a fan have less than X RPMs.
You either need to raise the alarm, or make another PWN profile in your bios so the fan spins at more RPMs.
In my asus board I had to make the fan spin at minimum 30% to avoid the motherboard reporting a cpu fan error, because the fan was going at 597-603 rpm during boot up.
