Cooler Master Hyper 212+ Fan Issue~

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, installed my new Hyper 212+ yesterday, this thing is huge!

I got it mainly to keep it cool, and quiet; by using the SmartFan stuff.

Well, when I plugged the fan in, SmartFAN was already enabled so I though, good.

My entire time on the computer, fan never came on.
Processor idle'd @ ~30°C (Stock cooler idled at 36! with 100% fan..).

So I hopped into bios, disabled smartfan to see if it'd set it spinning, nothing.
I tried detecting for a connection (4pin IS plugged in, double, triple checked) on both 3pin, 4pin, and auto. BIOS didn't find jacksquat..

I plugged the stock fan back in, spun up perfectly...

Motherboard: Biostar A770E3 (got it with the proc. real cheap..)
Processor: AMD Athlon II X4 620
Memory: DDR3 - 2x2GB Corsair & 2x2GB AVEXIR
Graphics: BFG Tech 250 GTS
Processor: Coolmax 600W

I'd like to keep the fan as quiet as possible with the SmartFAN feature..

Anyone know what's going on?

Thanks!

hook the fan to the psu. Leave it like that.

So.... Have you tried plugging the fan into another spot of your board?

All the other spots on the board are 3pin connections.

You can plug in a 4pin in a 3pin. Just like you can plug in a 3pin into a 4pin.

Wait, I should specify.. I was asking how to, not saying I did!

Looks like you're all alone...

just push it in just like you would on a 3 pin just make sure that you line up the little notches on both.

But the 4 pin has 4 pins.. and the 3 pin has 3 pins...
Which pin do you leave open?
