So I'm doing a test boot before putting everything into the case.

And when i power on, it says "cpu fan error", and my post speaker beeped 1 long then 4 short.

I read another forum, saying to go under advanced, monitor, and then cpu speed limit and set it to ignore.
I did that, and the post beep went away (now beeps 1short) and the "cpu fan error"went away.

So yes problem solved, but could any1 tell me what i did by changing that one setting?
I mean, what happened xD?
Does it have any negative effects? noise, overheat and son on having it set to ignore :) ?

Everything is installed, plugged in, and qudro checked. And changing the cpu fan speed limit to ignore under advanced settings solved the problem. I'm just trying to figure out why i had to change it to ignore to solve it.

Its year 2013, can't Asus solve this for new PC builders, looking at google, then I'm not the only one doing everything right but still getting that error..

do you have it plugged into cpu fan 1 or a secondary? it seems that the mobo does not detect it and thinks it will cause a problem.

there is a "cpu fan" and then a "cpu fan optional".
I plugged it into the "cpu fan", the first.

when I am in the bios, the display that shows cpu fan RPM is red, like if its too low. But the cpu temprerture is fine around 37 celcius. Im using a aftermarket heatsink, maybe it just cant't detect the new heatsink?

sounds about right, still have a few questions.

does it show the fan spinning a any rpms I the bios?
do you see any physical damage to the wires on the heatsink?
is it a 3 pin fan on a 4 pin connecter?

1. Before ignoring cpu rpm, and setting cpu minimum rpm to ignore it showed around 258 rpm, after i ignored both options under advanced its shows around 400-500

2. No, the heat sink is completely new, and there is no dmg.

3. Its a 4 pin conector, witch i plugged into the "cpu fan" header on the mother board witch have 4 pins too.

258 seems really low, even 400-500. Maybe a dud? how does it sound?
