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.

    Well the kicker of the whole thing is that the motherboard IS reading the temperatures correctly and tells me when the fans are on and the RPM they are at.

    It will display the temperature slowly creeping up to 72C (overheat temperature in the BIOS) and then the fans kick in and lower the temperature to around 55-60C, then shut off and repeat the cycle. Meanwhile, the system stays on and operates just fine so I'm not too sure of it being a processor fault.

    However, I'm still leaning to agree with you that it is a motherboard issue of some kind and I will swap it out when I get a chance and post back the results. Sadly I was secretly hoping for an easy answer like a jumper configuration of something. :D

    Although this was probably the toughest motherboard I've ever had to replace thanks to the 3 power supplies, 6 fans, cooling assembly and air cowl, the motherboard change did indeed take care of the problem. Thanks!

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

When cooking the fan doesn't run anymore. When I start cooking food the fan used to start right away, now it runs for a few seconds then stops but the food is still being heated.

The fan, a door switch, or control board relay may be causing the fan issue. Running the MW without a fan will not only cause steam buildup inside the cavity, it will cause the magnetron to overheat. If the MW has a thermal protector on the mangetron, it should shut the oven off when the temperature gets too high.

My oven fan has recently started to make a very loud rattling noise for around 30 seconds once every few minutes while the oven is turned on in fan mode.

The fan needs be cleaned and lubricated. To do this: Turn off stove/oven. Remove fan cover plate. Remove fan. Clean and lubricate the shaft bearings with 3 way oil. Install fan and cover plate.

2010 Lincoln MKS Heated Seat on driver's side stopped working (Light in button turns off on its' own)

The most common cause of this problem is that the drivers seat heater grid is open or burned out. That is based on 25 years as a Ford dealer technician.

Medion MED MT503 won't start or go through p.o.s.t.

When you say "fan" do you mean case fan or CPU fan? Almost sounds like the CPU fan is inoperative and the system is shutting down on CPU overtemp, then trying to restart.

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.

Fan in the freezer stop working ater a while

You may have a serious issue with the wiring harness inside the refrigerator.  You will need to have the technician come back out and check the continuity of the wires leading from the control board to the fan checked out.  If there is no continuity, it is not repairable.
