well everything seems to be fine in the dual core center.
Only one problem, it only detects 2 fans, instead of 5.
And fan 1 is working at half speed.
I think i need a fan controller, but first i'll try to plug all the fans on my power supply, see if that works.
Motherboard software showed the same fluctuations.
Broke out the DMM and checked on a peripheral connector, it showed OCCT to be incorrect.
Attempted to backprobe the 24 pin connector and the system shutdown.
Turns out it had somehow loosened and was causing the funky voltage readings.
Reconnected it and everything went back to normal.
Make sure the 24 pin connection is tight.
