Hi,I have a ChillTec Black CPU cooler to install in my new build. It has it's own fan controller and hence does not plug into the motherboard's CPU_FAN plug. Will this be a problem when I power up,i.e., the POST? Do I have to go into BIOS to address this or what? I have found nothing about it and am ready to assemble the computer. I have a Gigabyte X58A-UD3R board and will be using an i7 960 CPU,thanks for your help!

it will most likely ignore it
or give you an error like Cpu fan dangerously slow
somthing along those lines, and probaly should allow you to go into the BIOS settings

Yep. Just go into BIOS and tell it not to control CPU fan.
