Zalman Fan Controller Beep

  Luca M 12:06 10 Jul 2007

I have just got a new Zalman MFC 2 fan controller for my PC and connected the fans to 2 of the connections on the controller (it can take a maximum of 4). All the fans are working and I can control them with the zalman, but it keeps on beeping as if there is an error. There is no refrence to it anywhere on the zalman website or in the user guide that came with it. I have checked all the connections and everything seems to be fine. Does anyone know why it is making that noise or how to stop it?

is it the Zalman or the mobo that's bleeping?? Could it be the mobo complaining about having fan speed control / feedback taken away from it? Any settings in bios need changing?

No its definatley the Zalman. The beep is twice, with a pause of 2 seconds and then it repeats.

- Four channels of ZM-MFC2 detect fan RPM signals.
- The Alarm will activate if a fan is not connected or if there is no RPM input signal for any of the channels.
- To deactivate the Alarm, the Stand-By Mode (default setting: ON) of each unused channel must be deactivated.

1. 1. Selecting a Channel/Deactivating Stand-By Mode
(1) Select a channel with the Mode Button (The selected channel will begin to flicker).
(2) Press the Jog Wheel to deactivate the selected channel’s Stand-By Mode. The fan image will turn off.
