cpu fan replacement

  civicr 11:22 AM 26 Oct 12

I have just replaced the standard fan on my cpu for a bigger one and now on start up I get a cpu fan error press f1 to resume , why when it is running ok. The only thing I have noticed is that the power plug on the new one is a 3 pin as the old one was a 4 pin . Are there different power pins on the mainboard to plug into.

2 yellow 12v

3 green sensor

4 blue control

What colour cables does yours have?

Ok so is the yellow sensor cable fitted?

You may have to co into the BIOS to disable fan speed sensing / control
