cpu fan failed cm hyper 212 evo

Hello I have a coolermaster hyper 212 evo. Whenever I start my computer I get this error saying that it failed. Press f2 to continue. However when I continue, the PC shuts down when at the starting windows logo. I am not sure if it is related but I would really like to know a fix for this.
I have an OEM HP motherboard
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01077641&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en
Antec basiq 430 (80 plus certified)
HD 7770
If there is any fix for this that would be nice because there are no options in the bios to change the threshold for fan speeds. If you are wondering if I plugged it into the right socket, yes I did and I even checked motherboard formats online. This previously worked before on a xigmagek dark knight ii sd1283
Thanks

  1. Is the fan actually spinning and its just being reported wrong? If so, then its a motherboard problem. If not then check that the fan is plugged into the mobo fan header. If it is and still not spinning then the fan is faulty. Replace the fan. Either through warranty if the cooler is still on warranty. Else buy a 4 pin 120mm fan and swap it over.

    Yes the fan is spinning but the motherboard is not recognizing it as working.
  3. Is the fan plugged into the cpu fan header?

    Yes it is plugged into the cpu fan header or CPU_FAN. ive read about rpm settings but there is no option in the bios to change that.

    Really? That's weird. If you couldn't change speed it'd only need 2 pins with 12v across them to keep the fan going flat out.

    Have you got a manual for it? Is there anything in there about changing the cpu fan speed?

    HP (and Dell) make it very hard to address problems - especially on older pc's. Is there a forum of HP help that might help you?

    Sorry what I meant is that the motherboard can not detect the fan due to a lack of rpm. Once starting the computer the fan is quite fast, however after posting im guessing it goes idle. I don't think there are any forums or manuals that I have left. This computer has a q6600 which is atleast 6 years old.
    There are people saying to use a different fan i.e. a case fan to plug into that header but i am not sure how i can do that because the fans in my computer all use molex (antec 300).
    I can boot into bios fine so would there be a possibility that I have a broken motherboard?
    Much Appreciated
  7. I have found an advanced bios that let me change the CPU fan check and system fan check. Thanks i7Baby for your help. I am getting around 30 Celsius so I know the CPU temps are fine. I used hotkeys Ctrl+f10 to get into bios.
