After a series of crashes due to overheating of the cpu (80 degrees plus), I have installed a new psu and two new fans. The computer works and so do the fans but now I get an error message from the ASUS utility probe s/ware that the chassis and power fans are 'below threshold'. Does anyone know what this means and is it important?
If by wires you mean groups of wires, then are just two sets - one set plugs into the m/board, the other with four pins into a cable from the psu. The fans work so I suppose that's enough. Thanks for your help.
I think I've worked out what you mean! I plugged one of the three pin connector plugs into the m/board and it now recognises the fan and records the temp. There doesn't seem to be anywhere for the other fan's connector but it's progress.
Hi, I had a noisy 92mm case fan with three wires - white red and black, which plugged into the motherboard on a 3-pin connector. I just bought a new Vantec SF9225l as a direct replacement (quieter spec too) and it too has 3 wires (but yellow, black, red). On starting up the pc the fan works OK, but the pc goes to dos blackscreen, saying 'Chassis Fan is abnormal!' and '<F2> to run SETUP'. In setup I can find one setting under 'Power' called Chassis Fan, with only two options, and changing the setting (disabled or a fan speed which comes up in red) makes no difference. Any ideas please?
