CPU Fan Speed Too Low or Fails***

I will give you BIG FAT COOKIE if you can solve these for me!!

As for CPU Fan Issue, Error message will sometimes show up- "Cpu Fan too low or fails" But I looked at CPU which is attached to Motherboard, it didn't stop spinning. Only My Case fan (Which is different Fan which is bottom of Power Supply it sometimes turn itself off then restart on its own and then spinning like normal?) (Or is that 2 different issues?? But anyway)

I may need your juicy brain (Thinking) about that,

As you see, I am hardcore gamer, and I recently had Custom Built computer, and I recently started buy pc games*** (Wow Peformed great-) (Tried Overlord but couldn't enjoy playing the game due to Monitor Problem (As I posted earlier*) (It seem refuse swap the resoution with the full screen back forth to desktop and shut itself down***) (But Overlord game act normal on other CRT monitor***)

I recently installed a new software where it will "Determines" the Speeds and tells you temperature, and voltage and everything.

Okay, As you see, I am kind of NEW to whole thing, so I don't really understand a lot about how Numbers and how they are supposed to be set as" suppose you want to gaming high quality games like overlord, or oblivion or whatever.)

As I thought, that everything was done in Auto (Whatever Computer decides is best") because I read the manual book (Yay for reading -_-)

Cool n Quiet software is for- enables you view system real time cpu frequency and voltage. (But I cannot view this software yet since my Motherboard Bio were disabled for this feature, so I would have to enable this feature.

Right now I only can access other software "Smart utility monitors the fan speed, cpu temperature, and system voltages and alerts any detected problems. So What I see is here list of numbers, But I don't know whats normal and what's not.


1.36V Vcore
3.31 V
5.03 V
Cpu 38 o C
MB 37 o C
CPU 1288 rpm
CHASSIS 1222 rpm

these displays As I type to you, Only Firefox is open, this is what display here. I am pretty sure they changes when Gaming. Didn't try (Due to Monitor issue*)

And Oh yeah, I am wondering if I am supposed to have an Heatsink for Under the CPU fan on the motherboard? (Manual book shows that you can install that part but I didn't have heatsink) (Is it neccessary? Or not to worry?)

Hopefully the LCD Monitor can be fixed (Please check what I post earlier to see that issue.) So that I can enjoy gaming!! Without blow up my Computer ><

Thank you!

    Case: Dynex DX-500CC ATX Mid Tower Comes with 500 Watt Power Supply ATX12V Tri-Color 500 Watt power supply And it also comes with a blue light color case fan- But I don't know the name of that fan, (The Case look like X mark on the left side of case see-through, it also had lock-up front door***)

    VideoCard: Only bought One, (Although My Motherboard supports TWO VideoCards)
    Nvidia Gefore 700 Gt/Gto Total memory 256.0mb Current Display mode: 1280 x1024 (32 bit) (60hz)

    DirectX Ver 9.0c

    Memory Ram: 2048 MB of Ram Type- for Corsair 184-pin of TWO x 1gb DDR400-Dimms

    OS uses: Win Xp Home edition w/ service package 3

    Motherboard: Asus a8n sli deluxe

    Western Digital Sata harddriver 300 GB

    1 DVD Drive liteon dvdrw

    Thats all there is installed* inside*

    So here, I am asking you if its' good enough, or need to install something different or what?

    I want to be able to enjoy this computer for long time and have fun gaming without worrying about Computer melt down or overheat with too much. As you know, This is my FIRST custom built Computer, I lack experience or understanding, Since I was stuck with Shitty Dell Dimension 4400 for about 7 years now, I was too stubborn to upgrade the video card for that Computer, I feel that Dell isn't worth to upgrade because I know the limit of that Computer. I was hoping that I can get good answer and solution, and more information. Thank you for ALL YOUR HELP I appreciation it very much!

There are three things you need to have a good gaming computer, fast graphics card, fast CPU, and lots of RAM. You didn't list your RAM so I can't help you, but 4GB is the most you can put in a computer. If you want to know everything about your computer then click on Start>Accesssories>system tools>system.

Ok you asked four or five questions so lets start with the CPU since if that breaks nothing else matters. First, the measurement for CPU is GigaHertz (GHz) not rpm. So it looks like you have a 1.98GHz CPU. That is not extremely fast (my Dell laptop for instance has a 2.4GHz) so you don't have to worry about your CPU overheating. Yes, all CPUs should have a heatsink and a fan. It helps with the cooling. A CPU also does a thing called "throttling" if it is getting too hot it slows itself down to cool off. So you are good with the CPU.

The other fan is the large fan you hear going on and off. That is connected to your power supply. The measurement for that is in wattage, it is custom made depending on the motherboard so that is a given that there is no problems with the power supply.
Both fans on the CPU and the Power Supply will turn off and on as they get hotter then stop when they are cool again.

Your graphics card is the most important for gaming. It should come with its on RAM and it's on fan. GE FORCE makes some good ones. Just google "gaming graphic cards" and you'll get an idea of what you need.

So that's it. Hope this helps you understand more. If you have any questions let me know. Don't forget to rate this solution with four stars before logging out.

What makes 511-cpu fan not detected and 512-chassis not detected

Are you seeing this error on a system you built or a pre-built system? If it is a pre-built system, check that the fans are running. Next check where the fans are plugged in, the CPU fan must be connected to the CPU fan connector on your motherboard. The chassis (rear case fan) only needs to be connected to the motherboard if you want the monitoring/PWM (modulated fan speed) option. If your CPU fan is powered directly from the power supply, change this.

If this is a system you built or recently updated the case, check your fan power connections, as above. Next check the fan speed. My ASUS board will give the "CPU fan not detected" error if the CPU fan speed is too slow. A different CPU fan will solve the problem. (I got my fan with the CPU; it works fine.)

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with more information about your system for more assistance.

Processor question Compaq nc6000

Check your power management settings and make sure that your settings are not set to decrease CPU speed in order to conserve battery power. You can usually adjust it those settings manually (try the custom tab)

Sometimes, some motherboards might require an updated bios to resolve speed related issues. This would be your last step if power management tweaking fails.

Oh, check your bios, there are CPU throtteling settings that might solve this issue.

Cpu fan noisy/chip fan fail error messages


Yes. This sounds like a fan issue. The noise often comes from bearings failing within the fan. Also, a failing bearing can make things harder on the motor as it brings the fan up to speed. This is likely the reason that you see increased warnings during the fan speed check while booting because it comes to speed more slowly as bearing wear increases.

I give this a 90% chance that your CPU fan is causing the issue. Since a decent CPU fan will cost you ~$20 online, it's not much out of your pocket if you happen to uncover another culprit.

I'll keep an eye on this post. Let me know how things go.

Cpu fan noisy /chip fan fail

You must buy a new CPU Fan. You can get them HERE or a zillion other places on the Internet. You need a Socket 939 type fan that will handle your cpu speed. If you need help installing it, it may be in the manual. You can read the manual by clicking on the picture of your MB at the top of this post and then scrolling down.

Hope that fixed ya...

CPU fan fail or speed too low


I bought the same motherboard this past year (used) and installed it with AMD Athlon 64 fx-57, Antec P180 case, 550 w power supply. I had the case cover off to check the fans when I first fired it up. The AMD oem cpu fan hesitated at power on for a few seconds, which worried me. It started spinning normally and I then shut the system down and waited a few minutes before restarting it. It spinned up fine so I put the cover back on. I started getting the same error you mentioned, so I updated the BIOS to 1013 version. That didn't solve the problem. I ended up disabling the warning in the BIOS as I got tired of seeing it, as I could see the fans were all spinning and the CPU temperature was at about 26 to 34 on cold boot.

I recently checked on this problem and seems many others with this board have this problem. One fellow said he mailed off a question the the problem to ASUStek and they replied that it is just a glitch, that the fan is "smarter" than the BIOS, as it will hesitate to spin fully at start up if the CPU is cool. The suggestion was to disable "Q Fan Controller" in BIOS. I did and don't get that warning.

As for the yellow question marks under manage in Windows, you need to install the drivers for all of those devices, and they will be on the disk that came with the motherboard. I use the latest drivers from the ASUS site, but the only one I couldn't install was the ACPI ATK 0110 Virtual Device that came out in 2007. When I try to unpack the .rar file it says Corrupt Headers and refuses to use the driver from that file. So, I use the driver from the disk.
