I`m presently using a cpu fan for a case fan. If I install a larger 92mm fan, I get an error system fan failed,press f2 to continue. The cpu fan works fine, but I have to use wire ties to hold it in place. Is there a reason the larger fan gives me an error message? Is their a rpm problem?
I don`t know if you received my last post, but the fan I tried came from my older hp pc & it works perfectly. Full story. I had to replace my msi board in my newer hp. It did not come with a case fan. I replaced the board with an exact msi board from e-bay. It came with heat sink & fan but no processor. I installed my phenom x4 9150e. upon startup I get system fan failed. installed an old cpu fan with wire ties, the machine fired up perfect.Tried to install a 92mm fan, (for looks) and again get system fan failed. Like I said the 92mm fan does work. I wonder if it is in the chip set for this board. I can`t find nothing in the bios. Thanks for any input.
Since trying a different fan would probably not solve the issue, I was wondering if you resolved this? I have seen the error before when fans get replaced. I remember a post once which said something about adding a one time 5volt jump to the pins and that cleared the error but I am not seeing Power Up Diagnostic pins on the motherboard.
