Question about Computers & Internet
Hi Benson.if your fan connector doesn't have the amount of pins that Christopher mentioned your motherboard will not detect it even if it's functioning properly. To disable such notifications you will need to go into BIOS and search for the CPU fan. You might be able to find it. If not look for a BIOS update which might fix the issue. Another thing you can try with the BIOS is to reset it, easiest way is just to remove its battery. After 30 secs put it back, boot up your PC and let the BIOS detect the hardware again. Hope this helps.

Testimonial: "Hi Tony, I took it back to the service providers. They checked it and failed to fix it. They gave me another one which works perfectly with the same fan. Thank you for the suggestion."
Most CPU fans are PWM (4 Pins)
Some motherboards can work with a 3 pin(Speed Sensor) CPU fan.
Some motherboards require a 4 pin CPU fan.
Since you have 4 fans, plug the 4 Pin fans to the 4 pin fan connections,
and the 3 pin fans to the 3 pin fan connections.
Try a boot.
We find using 40mm, 50mm, 60mm, 80mm, and 120mm fans to test, (because they turn at different speeds), makes any errors in the BIOS or motherboard obvious.

SOURCE: 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...

I had tons of problems with these Asus chip fans. I asked Asus to deliver 12 replacements (as I had a lot of pcs at that time with the same problem) It worked well, but placing a tiny heatsink well glued to the chip worked well also, as long as one does not want to overclock the thing. It's true that the temp raised a bit, but it remained pretty much in the tolerance area.

You should still be able to connect the 3 pin connector of the fan to the 4 pin connector on the mobo, the keying tab is offset so that you cannot connect it to the wrong pins.
If you still don't want, or can't connect it there, simply go on the Bios (press delete after you turn on your computer) and you will find an option to monitor CPU fan speed.
If you need any more help, let me know
