Hey everyone, i recently installed a new cooler (cool master hyper 212 plus). The fan is running fine and and the q fan control is working too, but ever couple of boots i get a warning that there is a cpu fan error even though the fan is spinning and the temperatures are fine. Anyway I've read that some motherboards do this since the aftermarket coolers spin a lot slower than their stock counterparts. Is this what's going? and how can i stop these errors from appearing without turning of q-fan? (cause then this thing is just screaming at 2000rpm)
did it, and it's not showing up with any errors so i guess the fan was just spinning to slowly then? only problem now is that the fan is screaming all the time since fan control isn't enabled by default.
i had a similar situation regarding this as i had recently installed an antec 620 liquid cooling system and it didn't not plug into the CPU fan on the mobo ( it was plugged into the "chassis fan" instead.
you need to go into your BIOS settings and look into power management. the cpu should currently show "n/a". you need to change this to disabled.
