Trouble with chassis fan

Q: Trouble with chassis fan

Hey, I just moved my rig into a new Thermaltake case, which has about 3 huge led fans. I have 2 problems...

Most of the fans work but seem to run very slow, and particularly the fan speed control won't work.

I'm not too sure what I did wrong here, but there was one thing I noticed that was weird and wasn't in my old tower, which was a 2nd, 2-prong PWR Led lead in addition to the main power lead. I didn't do anything with it because I didn't know where to attach it to.

I have a Gigabyte GA-880GMA-UD2H Mobo, and the new case I got was this one

Any help is appreciated, thanks!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Trouble with chassis fan

are these fans plugged into the motherboard, or using a 4 pin molex?
If the MB, are the ones running slowly 3 pin, or 4 pin?

They are probably being auto controlled by the MB according to temperature. Have a look in your bios to see what temp/fan settings are enabled or disabled and how they are set.

Hi In November last year I wanted to try and overclock my CPU through bios Couldn t do that Tryed doing it through windows but my cpu just wouldn have Intruded -I Chassis a chassis! don't ! t go any higher than hz without becoming unstable so I tryed Chassis Intruded ! -I don't have a chassis! to look for any vcore settings in my bios None So I looked all over the web trying to find a hacked bios for my OEM MS- board but with no luck I recently bought a new Chassis Intruded ! -I don't have a chassis! ASUS P GDC-V board and it booted up fine a couple of times then when I tryed to overclock I miscalculated and set my fsb too high I thought the c p r function would reset the settings but it didn t and by mistake I removed the chassis jumper intead of the bios reset I replaced the jumper and reset the bios and now it keeps giving me the Chassis Intruded message although the jumper is in the right place Any help nbsp

A:Chassis fan solution

With an all clear design like that it may be hard to hide it completely. Your best bet would be to make it less visible. Maybe try bunching all the wires (or if you're okay with DIY, combine them all to a single wire) and route it towards the back of the case, and from there to the closest power point?

I had a bit of a catastrophe when opening my pc case. The wires and connector from my Chieftec D80SM-12 chassis fan have become separated from the motherboard. (An ASUSTek A8N-SLI Deluxe) and I don't know how to reconnect. The connector is a 3 pin with yellow, red and black wires leading into it and there are red and black wires leading out of it. Any help would be very gratefully received.

A few weeks ago, the (8mm?) side case fan, which has an LED light in it to help light up the inside of the computer started to blink, like multiple times a second. I was hoping it was the fan's light going bad, but I replaced it with a new (different) fan, and the same thing is happening.

What is the issue? It appears it must be a motherboard issue, but the motherboard seems to be powering everything else consistently and good.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! I'm running Windows XP if that helps, but the flashing starts pre-Windows, so it probably doesn't matter.

A:Flashing Chassis Fan?

What's the fan plugged into? Is it a motherboard fan plug? Or is it a four-pin Molex? I think I'd be wondering about the power supply. The only lighted fans I've had were so annoying that I uninstalled them immediately. There's no way to concentrate in front of the computer when it looks as if the gendarmes are coming.

I don't know if I should get a bench or a chassis for a new setup. I will be playing games, and I will not be doing benchmarks.

I will have a Seasonic M12II Bronze 520 watt as my PSU, a HD 6950 Sapphire Toxic @ 6970, my current CPU and motherboard, maybe 8GB or 6GB of RAM instead of 4GB, current HDD.

Thanks in advance

A:Chassis or bench?

The choice is entirely down to your personal preference, but there are a few things to consider. First, do you swap out your hardware all the time? If so, you might want a bench. Which do you think looks better? A decent chassis will cool just as well as a bench, so you might as well just pick the better looking one. Also, with a bench there will be more dust buildup and greater risk of something accidentally breaking your hardware.

Hi ...
If you have knowledge of electronics - or know someone who has - you can make use of a resistor. Otherwise, you can use SpeedFan, but since the fan is connected to the motherboard. Remember to use 3 to 4 pin adapter and plug it in where shown below. Hope it helps!

hi all,

i just have a question here. my system has been running hot lately. i have a msi neo2 plat. ed. motherboard with a p4 3.2 installed. i am using the original cpu fan with 1 8cm fan in the window, 4 more 8cm fans in the case. my cpu fan starts running like crazy. it runs at about max regardless of system applicaiton. i can only check my temps in bios (i think) and it's running like 55-60C. when i go to bios under the pc health tab, there is something called chassis intrusion. currently i have it disabled, but the other options are enabled and reset. to enable this would it help my cpu fan out a little? or does it have anything at all to do with system cooling. i installed a cooler master cpu fan but found that it ran hotter with the new one, so i installed the old. any suggestions?


A:what is chassis intrusion?

chassis intrusion is a utility that the bios can use to tell you someone has opened the case. (intruded into the chassis)

alot of times i office buildings, the administrator will use that to alert them to the fact that someone had opened that pc.

once someone opened the case, a little button would pop out, and the chassis intrusion alert would show during next boot. (and some bios's force the boot to stall untill you go into the bios and reset the intrusion alarm.

if you don't have a fear of someone opening your case, then it's best to leave this feature off.

it isn't at all related to heat.

but, about that heat, which direction are them fans all blowing?

a good test is to run it with the case open, and a fan blowing into it, and see if it still heats up. if it still reports a high temp, then you might check to see if there is thermal paste under the processor. if blowing a fan in the side helps, then you will want to look into adding out-blowing case fans at the top of the tower, usually in the back right under the power supply is the easiest spot to add them.

also, everest is a good tool to use to see your temps. (formerly Aida32) you can get it here:

and then there is speedfan. speed fan is good at showing temps, and on some motherboards can control the fan speeds, and it shows a temp in the system tray if you want it to. you can find speedfan at:

I am going to buy some fans for my Chassis but I dont know much about manufacturers of them i e the ones who have the best reputations for making good quality fans I would like to know which are the best bet to buy I live in the UK and have looked at some sites where I have seen Papst Sanyo Denki and Delta fans for sale quoted as being good quality Seeing as fans are cheap and can dictate quite a bit of noise output I shall be looking to buy ones which are fairly silent Obviously I could dig out info from the net as the Chassis best? fans. are Which there isnt much to know about simple case fans but I just wondered if any of you had suggestions or recommendations based on your experience and knowledge of these devices Also I would add that I only Chassis fans. Which are the best? have two spaces at the rear of my case for the fans and would like to ask should I buy one for sucking air in and one for blowing out or do I only require one fan to do one of these chores I ask this as my old PIII-machine pre-built did not have any chassis-fans pre-installed and so I am unsure what I will need with my newer rig Maybe I dont need any at all Advice please people nbsp

A:Chassis fans. Which are the best?


Try these YS-Tech fans as used by CoolerMaster (despite making their own fans). Very cheap, very quiet (for their rated output) and very reliable. I've used their FD8125 SILENT 80mm Fans (£5.64 ea), which you can find here ...

I'd set them both up to expel air from the case (note: fans can be fitted any way round to suit your prefered airflow direction). As you are probably aware PC cases are not airtight so setting them both to blow air out of the case will ensure that you get a nice flow pattern for cool air entering and leaving the case. If you were to set them up one blowing the other sucking you would be unlikely to get the best cooling effect with your case.

You could spent a lot more on case fans (see other fans on this site), but I really doubt that they will be any better than these.

A:Power fan and chassis fan not working?

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

By power fan, do you mean the fan inside the psu(power supply unit)?

If you do, then your psu is about to fail and should be replaced immediately, before if goes altogether and takes some of your valuable components with it.

Do a physical check to see if the fans in question are actually stopped. You should be able to tell simply by placing your hand near the fans.

Simple question really;

I'm about to purchase a BTX-chassi and a BTX-motherboard. The motherboard has a regular PCIe x16-slot.

I do also have a graphics card with the PCIe x16 interface, from my old ATX-chassi.

Can I simply pop the card in the PCIe-slot, or does the BTX-structure require something else like an inverted card specifically made for the BTX?

A:Does PCIe x16-cards fit in BTX-chassis as well?

i'm pretty sure it works all the same, with the slot being the same distance from the chassis itself as with an ATX.

A:how to install chassis fan that has no connector

if you want to connect it to the mobo directly, you will need to get a 3 pin connector then join the wires to the connector, and the connector to the board. if i remember correctly, pin 1 and 2 should be + and - respectively and the third a control/sensor. but doublecheck that with your motherboard manual. if you want to join it straight to the psu, then you will need to cut and strip one of the cables going to the molex plugs and tap it from there. be sure to not have any wires crossing each other or naked (use electrical tape or heatshrinks to seal tehm up)

My computer came with a piece of software for monitoring fan speed etc. Whenever I launch it, it says "Warning! Chassis fan 0 rpm" to tell me the chassis fans aren't turning. However, they never seem to turn on! I don't know if it's normal, and I'm just worrying over nothing, or if there's something wrong. I've attached a screen shot to show what the software says.



A:Chassis fans not working?

this could be a number of things. Are the fans actually turning on. If they are the software is clearly not detecting them. the likelyhood that both fans went out at the same time tells me that its probably something else other than your fans misbehaving.

1.if you need to they will have two wires connecting them to the motherboard. make sure that is firmly seated in the connector on the board.
2. see if you have any yellow exclaimation points in the device manager
3. try hitting that "update" button or reinstalling that particular software so the software can reinitialize.
4. show me what the screen shot of the fan speed tab.

I wouldnt sweat this issue. If you see the fans are spinning and the board temp is reasonable you've got nothing to worry about.

Is the envy 13 d000 series all in aluminium? because i read some reaviews that the bottom case is in plastic thtat looks like aluminium

A:Is Envy 13 chassis all in aluminium?

Hi, From a preview: CaseIf a manufacturer of a premium subnotebook wants to be on the safe side in terms of the design, they just copy the design from Apple. HP does not make any experiments with the Envy 13 and follows the role model pretty closely ? and the result is appealing. The chassis is primarily made of brushed aluminum, which not only looks great, but it also hardly flexes under pressure. The bottom cover and the lid on the other hand are much more flexible (and feel more like plastic). There are no artifacts on the screen when you apply pressure at the back, but this Envy is not very torsion-resistant. Otherwise, there is not a lot to criticize about the build quality: The hinges are taut and only allow a slight wobbling of the screen, which can be opened up to 135 degrees. Small gaps support the generally decent build quality. Source: You can feel much better with higher class/gtade machines called Spectre . Regards.

I found this thread in the Dell Forum

Vostro 200 fan Noise at startup - Desktop General Hardware Forum - Desktop - Dell Community

They all point towards a certain BIOS version ( v1.0.8), a downgrade to the previous version seems to have fixed this for some. But also say the fans definitely spin up upon startup, but are supposed to slow back down after a few seconds.

Hi Just unwrapped my birthday present today... a brand new, shiny, HP Pavilion HPE-595uk (yay!).  My husband bought it direct from HP, about 3 weeks ago.  It has been unused until today.  (Happy Birthday me!) However, on first power up, I got a bios message:- "Error 512 - rear chassis fan not detected, Press F1 to continue" I pressed F1 and the startup continued, Windows 7 Installed, all seems ok... I am talking (typing) to you on the PC right now.  However... if I powercycle the PC, I get the error (Error 512 - rear chassis fan not detected, press F1) every time. Does this mean there is a fault with this PC? Should the rear chassis fan be detected?  Has a cable come loose?  Brand new PC remember... just out the box 2 hours ago.    

View Solution.

A:Error 512 - rear chassis fan not detected

Thanks for the inforfmation.  I just started my new computer which had the " Error 512 - rear chassis fan not detected" message.  The connector to the rear fan had a bent pin and the connector was just sitting on it.  Nudging the pin with long nose pliers and a small screw driver fixed it and allowed the connector to be plugged in all the way and all is well.  Be sure to remove the power cord from the back before doing this.  I didn't and the on button was hit while removing the side panel.  Since I have a SDD I didn't hear the computer come on - I was lucky not to short something out!

I have an HP Touchsmart 610-1150y (Windows 7, 64-bit) all-in-one pc that I purchased in Sept. 2011 and it's been perfect until today. I went to turn it on and got the "rear chassis fan not detected" error, but since it's an all-in-one pc I'm not sure if it even has a rear chassis fan. I opened up the back of the pc and only saw the heatsink fan, but I'm not sure if this is the fan that's giving the error or if there's another fan somewhere that I can't see since it's hidden by the case.  Also, I downloaded and ran both SpeedFan and Open Hardware Monitor and neither show any fans listed.  Not sure where to go from here, any advice would be appreciated.

A:Motherboard's Chassis fan connectors not working

Well, usually a big zap sound and a restart signify that something went seriously wrong. I suspect that you've blown the regulators that provide power to the chassis fans. They are not field repairable, meaning that you can't fix them. I would suggest getting a commercial fan controller to look after your fans.

My PC shutdown because of CPU high temperature and, after resetting, I found that the cpu and chassis fans on my Asus A7V8X-X mobo were not running. When the mobo is powered up (and before the CPU overheats again) I measure +2v between ground and +12v of the cpu and chassis fan connectors. The fans work ok if I separately apply 12 volts to them.
What could be causing only 2v instead of 12v at the mobo connectors? Is it the mobo, or is it the PS?
It's not like it's zero volts like with a blown fuse. But it's 2 instead of 12. And I can find +12v at the PS disk drive accessory connectors. Does the mean the PS is ok? Or are there different +12v outputs from the PS?

A:Low voltage at cpu/chassis fan mobo connectors

Hello! Welcome to TechSpot

What a drag!
It sounds to me like the psu is flaked out, it may have taken out the MoBo too.
If you are not getting power to the cpu fan from the MoBo, then chances are it
messed up. Most likely the cpu is still good if you did'nt run it to long with no fan.
There are at least three places to hook a cpu fan in on that A7V8X-X MoBo
(I have one) A7V8X-E Deluxe
try a three wire fan on each one to see if they power up too.

Good morning all,My motherboard was replaced after having an issue but during bootup i get a loud beep followed by "Invalid Chassis Serial Number". I have looked across forums and they say to press F10 to get into BIOS then CTRL A to be able to enter the Serial Number.First my machine is HP Prodesk 600G1 Tower PC, second the F10 doesn't get me anywhere, and finally the which serial number are they talking about and where can I find it?

A:Invalid Chassis Serial Number

Hi: You have to tap the ESC key first on your model to get access to the F10 BIOS access menu. After entering BIOS Setup by hitting the F10 key, press Ctrl+A to open additonal fields in Security>System IDs menu. Enter your PC's serial number in Asset Tag Number and Chassis Serial Number fields. Save changes there and again when you exit the BIOS. If that doesn't work you will have to contact HP technical support for assistance.

I have a Coolermaster 120mm UV LED Fan, and it came with these wide screws but, the fan itself doesn't have threaded holes they were just smooth, so you really had the press hard and turn hard to get them in properly, so inevitably I stripped all four of them. I was thinking about getting a new fan, since these aren't very powerful fans either. I am willing to buy a Grab-it removal kit for my screws, but I am worried about metal shavings from using the filing bit that comes with the kit. I can remove my motherboard tray, but I am still worried about metal shavings, what precautions should I take?

I am also think about breaking the holes with a screw driver so then I don't need to worry about metal shavings, but it doesn't seem that practical.

A:Connecting chassis fans to the motherboard

Hi alexjsc, One way to power extra fans is to tap off 12v from one of your 4 pin molex connections, to, say a DVD drive.
There are molex adapters which have a plug on one side and a socket on the other, plus a small plug for one of your extra fans.
You need to check the number of pins on your fans connections, could be 3 or 4, but you need power for 3 fans also.
Also, do you want to be able to slow the new case fans, or to have them running full speed always.
This is the type of connector;

Hello people,

I installed a new SeaSonic 430W 80+ Bronze S12II-430 in my friends' computer. When I plugged the machine in and touched the chassis, I got zapped. I disconnected everything, looked inside the box, to make sure I had installed the motherboard and connected everything properly (no extra screw-holder thingies in the mobo panel, for instance). It all looked good. I then connected the power cord to the PSU, and leaving the switch off, touched the box with an electric screwdriver (and to verify my findings also with my bear hand....) to find it was live, alright, got zapped again.

Now, if the power switch is off, the PSU shouldn't be giving any power to any components within the computer, right? So, can I safely deduce that the PSU is faulty and return it to the store?

Hi there,
Iam  looking into the Dell Precision Tower 5000 Series and have a question regarding its power supply. We plan on adding a consumer grade Video card which requires 2 additional 6 pin power connectors. Does the 825W chasis cater for such video cards?
The video card which we will be adding consumes about 300W on full load which, according to the spec sheet, is the maximum consumption for Video cards running on a 685W chasis. Hence we are going with the 825W Chasis instead to be safe. 
I have been communicating with Dell over chat however I am not getting through to them as to what I need so this is my next hop :)
thanks and regards,

A:Trouble pasting, trouble canceling paste

Hi valenz9,

My personal observation on above is that at times the system is stuck moving data if there are a large number of small sized files involved. It is usually advisable to copy and paste data first and then delete the unwanted data from older location for data security. However, as in your case you are already stuck moving the data and it is not responding anymore, I would suggest you to go ahead and End the copying process with the help of Task Manager (Right click on Taskbar and click Start Task Manager). Once you have killed the task, the data might be divided into two halves i.e. in old location and rest in new location. I would suggest you to utilize a third party data copying utility to copy the data in one place. Once such application is TeraCopy. Note that copying may take a long time if there are a lot of small files involved. Also, the program shared is neither recommended nor endorsed by Dell.

Hope this helps.

Sounds like you have a graphics hardware error (as the stress test failed).

Doublecheck that it was not overheating causing your problems (keep an eye on the temperatures when you are stressing it).

If the temperatures are fine then I suggest taking your laptop in under warranty (if possible).

Hi and welcome to TSF.

My first thought is a problem Power Suppy Unit(PSU).

Some things to check:

- are all cables securely in place
- is the RAM securely in it's slots
- is your power supply sufficent
- do you have sufficient cooling in the case

Try clearing the CMOS by removing the battery for a few minutes then replace and reboot. Make sure the BIOS settings are all at default.

Well i bought a 512 DDR 333mhz ram chip the other day and when i have it in my computer,i get errors and program shutdowns.Sometimes it even says files are corrupt.I tried to isolate the ram chip and it indeed wont start windows when that chip is in by itself.My games wont run either.It is a brand new chip so im puzzled.I am running all of this on windows XP with a 2800 AMD and since i cant get new ram working i am using 256 ddr 333mhz.I was able the check the new ram chip speed in bios and it too says 333mhz.Is my computer doomed?Something i can install to make it stable/work?If anyone could provide info on this,i would appreciate it very much.The brand is Centon and it was from comp usa.Thanks for your time

i'm having trouble with my cd-rw drive. i have an imation 12x8x32 drive, and i use the nero burning software. whenever i try to burn ANYTHING i get an error message that reads 'no seek complete' about halfway through the process. so, things i have determined:

it is not nero, because the burning feature of win xp gives me a similar error

its not my data, because when i network my computer to another my data burns on the other computer perfectly

i have the latest firmware version

its not the ide cable, because i tried replacing it

i have also tried cleaning the lens

its not win xp, because i had the same problem w/ 98 before i upgraded

i make sure the writeable discs are dust free and have no damage

please help someone! thanks.

A:please help, cd-rw trouble

According to Nero's site it means the CDRW does't like the CDR's you are using, try a different type or brand.

I got a new computer and was having trouble getting the drivers installed, so I took it to a technician. He got the drivers installed, but when I took it there my CPU read AMD Athlon 2800 and now that i got it back it says AMD Athlon 1500 so I changed my front bus from 100mhz to 200mhz and the temperature barely changed. Then when I chose save and exit my screen went black and nothing would come up. I know i should have set it at 166mhz, but now I cant get to my BIOS screen. How do i set the CPU back to factory settings so I can see my screen again??
thanks so much

A:CPU trouble! HELP!

You need to reset the BIOS to defaults, check your motherboard manual and there should be a jumper on the board (labeled reset CMOS usually) for that or just taking the battery out of the motherboard for a few minutes then putting back in.

I have been having trouble signing into MSN Messenger v7.5 for the last few days. I unstalled it and then reinstalled it and that work until i logged out.
Here is the message I get.

Help what do I do?

A:Help MSN Trouble

Check the error logs under the Administration section:

Start -> Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management

See what the error logs have to say. Might shed some more light on this matter. Else, is this the latest version of MSN? Try updateing. If that fails, try down grading. I have an older 7 version of MSN I could send if you so wish. but it'd have to wait 'till I'm home.
