Default Just a quick question

So, I installed my new water cooling system today and everything ran smooth, installation was fine, no problems booting up. Got into windows fine alos, then I rebooted and went into bios and it said "CPU FAN FAILURE" I don't have a CPU fan anymore, is that why I got this message? I don't get this message unless i go to my BIOs, temps are fine, performance is fine, shall I be worried?

Don't even bother. Disable the CPU Fan detection in your BIOS.

There's no need to make the stretch.

What system did you decide on going with btw?

Well, a 6400 isn;t going to push it too hard. But what are your temps idle/load? And what thermal compound are you using?

3DMark won't give you an actual full load, just a realistic load. You need Orthos for a full load. The newest version supports our dual cores.

BIOS gives you the most accurate temperatures. Try finding a program like Everest Home, RightMark CPU clock Utility, or whatever program you're using to monitor your temperatures and match it up with your BIOS temperatures.
