Question about SuperMicro H8DAE Motherboard

1 Answer

H8DAE-0 Fan issues, stopping and starting.

I have an H8DAE-0 board installed in my system and the fans will come on for a few seconds and then stop. I checked the BIOS and it is set for continuous fan power. The fans only kick in when the system is starting to overheat (72C) and then stop right afterwards. Lowering the overheat temperature is not an option. I have another system with the same components and its fans run all the time. I have double-checked the power connections and all the fans are plugged in independently so I don't think the fans themselves are an issue. There are stand-offs under the board so I'm fairly sure that it's not a short happening under the board. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Re: H8DAE-0 Fan issues, stopping and starting.

Sounds as if you have a motherboard fault or a processor fault, as, if the processor is faulty, everything will stop, especially if the temperatures arent being read correctly by the motherboard causing the system to shut down before any damage is done.. It's a process of illimination i'm afraid

As i press the start button, fan works for just only 1 or 2 seconds and stops. System does not starts. what may be the problem

Sounds like a bad connection between a processor (GPU/CPU) and the board. You can remove the components and reattach with Arctic Silver ($7 at RadioShack).

When i plugged power cable to my pc cpu fan start without press power button

It should start for a few seconds, the fans should spin and then stop. You should be able to power it up as per normal. If that is no the case then you are having hardware issues which could be the Power supply

Sir i am using asus motherboard(ASUS M2N68-AM SE2) in my pc, when i switch on my pc the processor fan and smps fan is rotating for few seconds(4 to 6 Seconds) and it stopped rotating. 1. the monitor shows...

remove all the ram from motherboard and switch on the system and see it is working or not like just on and fan are rotating and the smps fan is also working and your system is giving beep sound for ram.try with other smps also some time problem with power supply also. Remove the connector of power switch and restart switch and directly try to on from shorting the connector with the help of pen or screw driver point. Some time faulty switch also give problem. Just try all these possibilities.

Hope this helps. Please rate my response.
Have a good day.

When i start my computer. the fan turn i on. but in just few second the cpu. stop working...its not rebooting at first, what should i do?

usually this problem comes when there is lots of dust on the cpu heat sink, fan and the mother board.just use a long soft paint brush and clean the dust, alos if you have a vacum cleaner reverse the inlet and use it as a blower.

The small fan does not want to run, it runs for a few seconds and stops, my computer keeps rebooting

when the fan stops 2 things are happening 1 the bios sences no rpm speed from the fan or the processor heats up to quickly and the safety in the bios will shut it down. try moving the fan connector to the case fan connector then go into the bios and change the fan settings. this is only a temp fix the fan stopping tells me that the onboard cpu fan regulator is going out and this is a precurser to more problems to the board going out. also just to be certin check the power supply 4 years ago i came across this in a gateway it was weird.

Computer does not boot

If you computer over heated, this could have caused the board or power supply to short. I would first start by trying a new power supply unit (since this is cheapest of the options). If that does not work then try replacing the motherboard and/or processor. Since you not getting any power, my guess is motherboard or power supply unit.

Power supply Ok.But CPU fans started with seconds It's stop.

sounds to me like your mainboard is bad, i bet if you closely inspect the capacitors around the cpu one or more is bulged out or leaking

Trouble shooting

OC failure = over clocking failure. Make sure the CPU fan is clean, free from dirt & dust. Check CPU fan plug is connected correctly. If the CPU fan still stops after a few seconds replace the CPU fan.
It's harder to find just a fan to fit your heatsink, which sits on your CPU. It is easier to find a new heatsink \ fan combo for your Intel. Use your manual to find what Intel chip is on your board. Use that information & search google for a heatsink & fan combo. Pay close attention to how your current heatsink is mounted to the Gigabyte board.

Replace it and let us know if it still happens with the new one.It shut down because of overheating, I hope it didnt mess up your CPU.
