I post here because I have a problem with my CPUfan.
I have the following problem.
I had this config:
- e6300 with regular intel heatsink
- asus p5qlpro
-4b ram ddr2 kingston 667
- power supply 420w
-sapphire radeo hd4850 512mb pcie
Today I decided to install my upgrade:
1) I installed the new power supply Antec earthwatts 650w
2) I installed the new CPU E8600
3) I installed the new heatsink and cpu fan Arctic Cooler Freezer Rev2
I switch on the PC and the bios recognize the new CPU and the power supply appears to work well.
BUT I have the error: cpu fan error. I check it and indeed the fan is not working.
The fan is well connected to the 4pin cpufan connector on the motherboard and after some reboots I noticed that when I push the button "power" on the case and the PC start its startup, the fan is indeed working for half-second.
The fan is free to work, there are no obstacles-
I checked bios and disabled the cpu-q fan feature but nothing changed.
I tried to connect the fan to a chassis fan connector (3 pins) butnothing changed.
I finally tried to use the PC normally taking a look at the temperatures:I tried 3dmark06 but during the first test the PC rebooted.
What can I do? Everything in the previous situation was working fine...
I thank in advice the ones who will help me.
