a8r-mvp question

ok so i built my first pc (specs to follow). Everything seamed to go fine except that on post it said cpu fan failed but the fan was running so i turned off monitor in bios and post went fine. Also the PC Probe Software that comes with the mobo says that the cpu fan and the power fan are both not working but they are. is there anything i can do to fix this problem. All the fans came with Armor case except the cpu fan is a panasonic 120mm and im pretty sure i have them plugged in correctly.

also is there any software tool i can run to check the setup for speed and such or is it pretty much a "seat of the pants" type of thing.

As a side note is there a primer to go to learn the basics of overclocking...id like to attempt it as safely as i can.

    Since it is an aftermarket fan, maybe it doesnt have the 3 wire needed. 2 for power, one for speed sensor. If you have only 2 wires, then tour board cannot have an idea about if it is working or not.
  4. when u use a 120mm, it runs at a significantly lower rpm. like 900-2600 rpm but stock fan runs at 2000-5500 rpm or so.


    assuming, your fan has the sensor 3rd pin, and plugged in the cpu fan power,

    running too low could end up with a "not working" in bios or asus pc probe.
