Just finished installing the Cooler Master X6 Elite on a new Sabertooth z77. When I first started the PC I get a warning message (CPU Fan Error!)
Everything seemed just fine in the BIOS, temps were between 28-32 on the CPU. The fan speed however, would not go over 500 RPM. I changed a few basic settings such as Asus Optimal Mode, and in the Temp Control set the CPU fan to the highest setting. The only thing that seemed to accomplish was getting it between 6-700rpm.
Did some searching around, with mixed opinions and solutions. Is this normal? Is it intentionally keeping the fan speed low? I just want to know that if it needs to, it can cycle up above 1000rpm. New i5-3570k in there as well so it makes me slightly nervous. I just want my new baby to be ok!
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.
