my cpu fan has become noisy intermittently though. asus probe shows temp of cpu normal (42-43 c max). changed bios settings for cpu fan from 1200 rpm to 800 rpm. error messages"cpu fan fail or speed too low" even after that.suddenly new error message "chip fan fail or speed low".after visually checking it i found out that the chip fan spins some times and doesn't other times. the message frequency has increased to almost everytime i boot nowadays. does the problem lie with cpu fan/chip fan /smps. the voltages are in normal range (as shown by the probe). the frequency of cpu fan from 3600-4400 rpm. the chip fan when detected runs at 4500 rpm -5500rpm. the noise of the cpu fan is usually accompanied by drop in chip fan rpm count.the count rises when the sound of the cpu fan dies down.
i have been advised to change the cpu fan. i want to make sure the problem lies with the cpu fan. plz suggest.
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.
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.

Hello, You will remove the CMOS battery and wait for 5 minutes . Hope it will solve. If the problem is same please change or clean the RAM with eraser and install it again. If the problem is same please , http://www.techspot.com/review/129-asus-p6t-deluxe/If the mobo is in warranty should change .If period expire Now you will create a identity mark on BIOS chip and ,you should remove resoiulder the BIOS chip from *********** board .and install it again tightly.
If all the procedure will fail think your mobo should change as new. Hope this helps.
AMD's CPU temperature's range from 10-85 degrees, the normal is around 48-60 degrees. So your within the normal. Sometimes depending on what your doing, the chip will run up to 70 or so, that's also normal, but you want to make sure that it doesn't stay at 70 for long. It will shorten the life of the CPU.
My recommendations would be to remove all connections to the board.
Remove the CMOS battery.
Remove the CPU fan and CPU.
Look at the top of the CPU, if you have a crust over the top of the CPU, you will need to remove it to a clean surface.
Next, your CPU fan should be a 3 wire connection on the motherboard, within two inchs of the CPU holder.
After cleaning the CPU, re-inseart and apply a heat sink lub for good heat transfer.
Re-install CPU fan and plug in to board connection.
Re-install your CMOS battery and power up unit.
With the CMOS battery removed, the time and date will need to be reset.
Also, in the BIOS for that board, you should be able to see temps. and rpm readings. ??
Hope the CPU has not taken a dump on you.!
Before you plug in the drives and other devices, check temps. rpm and voltages.
Have fun, hope this has helped you.
This sounds as if the motherboard arrived with some form of issue. It has been happening quite frequently with ASUS boards recently. The retention bracket which connects the heatsink/fan to the CPU? If so, yes, it should be connected to ensure the processor remains cool. You are correct, you will need a DVI-HDMI cable. Not to worry, though. They have become quite popular recently.
Hi dutchdj, speed fan software is not perfect. If you look on the motherboard, use your manual & go to page 1-6. You'll see there is a power connector in-between the memory & the main MB power connector. The 3-pin connector closest to the upper right hand of the board is for the CPU fan. The 3-pin power connector under the CPU fan connector is for the MB fan. You seem to have this covered. You are correct. There is no other 3-pin connectors for additional fans. (I went over your manual), your good! It is possible that your software is trying to monitor the graphics card fan. I wouldn't worry about it. The temp 41c-44c is still within normal temp. If you want to help lower the over all temp, suggest you add 1 or 2 side case fans. These will bring in fresh air onto the MB & help cool CPU, MB, video & hdd's. I did this for my Asus & it has helped allot. Check out this site if you want to add more case fans; http://www.xoxide.com/casefans.html

Chances are the CPU fan may be running too slow, dust & dirt build up under & over the fan blades can be a big factor. CPU fan could just be going. Are you over clocking the system. (IF so buy a better heatsink & fan for over clocking the system).
To check if CPU is getting too hot. Enter the bios & go to the title, "Power" page 2-28. Open Hardware monitor & check the CPU temp & mother board temp. (Make sure the case is closed in normal running conditions).

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.
This Is A Processor error Message, CPU ( Central-Processing-Unit ) INT ( Intermittent Fault ) wrong Type Installed. ( Faulty Processor ) Disconnected Fan-Wire To Motherboard ?
Or if It,s INIT Then It Fails To Initialise The CPU.
Is The Board Auto-detect Settings ? Or Jumpered ?
