Boot says CPU fan error

Upon boot, my splash screen says CPU fan error, press F1 to continue. After loading Windows, I open HW Monitor and everything seems fine. I also ran 5 minutes of Prime 95 and my CPU temps remained fine and my fan acted accordingly. It sped up then when the test was over it slowed down. I'm posting this in Motherboard section because I think it may be a motherboard issue and the motherboard is what detected it, I think.

It has no other fans inside it. It has good ventilation and it never gets hot. Any advice? Thanks

Is your CPU fan plugged into the fan header marked CPU Fan?. If you just have it plugged into any random fan header, the fan will obviously work, but unless there is something connected to the CPU fan header, most boards will throw that error.

Should be able to tell your bios to ignore that under settings.

It think that you don’t have any cooling installed

Sometimes the rpm signal is flakey and can read zero. One of my old Noctua fans from 2009 has the rpm signal read zero momentarily, but the fan works normally. You should have and option to ignore the CPU fan warning in the BIOS.

Yeah it's all plugged in right. I think the problem is like the other 2 said. I just disabled it in the bios.

Thanks everyone. I went ahead and disabled it in the bios.
