Im having trouble with this CPU cooler
When i start the System the Fan rotates siglthy then stops.
First i thought it might just be the CPU not heating up enought to make the Fan start, then i realize it wasn't that .
Wich brings me to think that the MB still feeds Energy to the CPU,but it stops afterwards somekind of security protection.
The problem is probably in the Fan itself or the cable,any kind of shortcircuit is enough for the Mb to Automatic cut the Power.But then again i can;t say for sure until i fully test it.
As i said i haven't had much time the Solutions I already tried are listed below;
1-Disconnect and connect CPu cooler Again.
2-Tryed all kind of diferent settings in BIOS regarding CPu Fan speed, and Auto speed.
3-COnnect CPu Cooler directly to the PSU.
4-Use a CPu cooler FAN speed controlor,as i am a reviewer i have some here.
5-I think i have and adapter of a Zalman to a Cooler i will try it out too.
6-I think i dont have any Fan directly connect to the MB,and are at The PSU, i will try to connect one to Mb, just in case.
7-Try out new Bios.
8-I will try to fix The COoler by myself, it's not worth sending back
Recently i tried to pull a bit the cable nest to the center of the FAN and it worked, The FAn rotated for about 1 min again the probably Stoped due some Mb short circuit protection .
It's Brand NEW Cooler.
AMD Athlon II 240
HD4890 Vapor-X 1GB GDDR5
Gskill 12800 ddr3
2x250 GB SATA II raid0
1x80gb IDE+1x160GB IDE
so ... how did you solve the problem ? i have been running 2 of the same coolers on a 9950 140w and a 965 125w , and so far have not had any problems. both machines run seti with a slight overclock and run at temperatures between 47c - 49c.
Thank you very much Silent321. You've just saved me a whole load of trouble. For some reason, the artic cooler 7 pro fan gets easily dislodged from its base. Just push it gently together like Slient said, and you'll hear a click. The fan will work beautifully afterwards.
