Cooler Master 212+/ASUS P8Z77-V Pro

Just got the following system

Asus P8Z77 Pro
Intel i5 3570k
Cooler Master 212+
Corsair TX 750
NVIDIA Geforce 560

On the Optimized Defaults, I also receive a CPU Fan Error. The BIOS indicates that it is spinning between 600 to 700 RPM, but it keeps throwing up this error.

The only time it does not throw up this error is when I set the threshold to less than 600 RPM. Currently, I have it set to 500 RPM and no issues.

Thoughts? Or is the Cooler/Fan broken and should I get it returned?

Thanks for your help!

It's fine and common. I had to do the same with my 212 Evo (lower the fan speed threshold), and it's the generally accepted thing to do. Nothing wrong at all.

Great news, indeed.

Thank you. I noticed at idle, my CPU temp is 28-30 Celsius. My Heatsink only has the one-fan configuration.

From what I understand, that's very good. I can't believe it's a full 5 to 6 degrees cooler than my C2D. Amazing.

Thanks again!
