no, nothing for testing voltages. checked the bios and switched of the alarm. enabled abitEQ control of the system fan where the CPU fan is now plugged in. Its running at 1500rpm.
The CPU fan it set to run at 50% from start up, but I didnt think that was a problem as the fan does not spin up during POST at start up. I guess its not getting enough juice. I will see if I can borrow a volt meter.
Thanks for taking the time to answer. Much appreciated
