If you doubt about RPM sensing just take away with a lil screw driver the pin from the connector.


Hey, I like my lil' blinkers. They keep me company late into the night :lol: .

If anybody asks what that "flashing" is about, I'll just tell them it's a top secret mod no one else has! :D

I had this same problem when i had my Desktop up here.  Once i moved it to the basement it stopped.  I determined the cause to be that the wall power outlet was not providing enough power to power my entire room fully.  I checked downstairs and there is only a 10A breaker on there to power my room, the room next to mine, and the bathroom with about 700W worth of lights in it.  So just try moving the tower and the monitor to a different outlet (on a different breaker) to see if that is the problem temporarily.  If it is, well then you are screwed.

I'm on an intel 865 board.  I had the same problem.

Whoops.   My memory wasn't accurate about the bios settings the first time around.   After checking, the procedure (at least on my 865gbf intel mobo) is as follows:

Go to the "Advanced" screen (left arrow key once)
There is a list of choices.  Select "Fan control configuration"
Press Enter
Select "Fan Control"
Press Enter
And Select "Disabled"

Not quite! This just gives me an excuse to run a dedicated power line fo the PC. And since I'm doing that, I can run some of that CAT-5 that's been laying around for a new phone line as well. See, now I get to mod my house wiring too :lol: .

Who want's to settle for simply setting BIOS when you can mod something ;) .

You may like 'em, but if they're drawing more current than the mobo can provide via those headers, you may be on the road to mobo failure. Is it worth it? Up to you.

I'd put the speed sensor wire on those headers only and plug the fans into a molex connector from the PSU.
