That's fine having the low noise adapter installed.

Today I just received an error on boot: "CPU fan error! Press F1 to enter setup". I'm thinking this may be just that it thinks the fan is running too slow, but then again, I had a computer once that just went caput after about a month of this warning. How seriously should I take this?

Is your fan running? Are your temps ok? If yes to both, ignore it.
