Default need help with boot up (installed new water cooler)

hey well i just installed an Evercool WC-202 and got everything working but now when i turn on my computer, when it goes to boot windows its shuts off or if i go into BIOS it will shut off too. By using a regular fan on the CPU it doesn't do this but when i put the CPU water block on it does. i would really appreciate it if anyone could help me here. P.S. I have an ASUS A7v600-X M/B.

Do you suppose that it could be that it's reading the CPU fan speed as 0 RPM (because it's not there) and shutting down as a safety measure? You could try hooking up the old CPU fan and laying it outside the case or somewhere safe and see if it stays on.

Case: Enermax CS-A106USB
Motherboard: ASUS P5N32-E SLI
CPU: Intel E6300(idle 35C/load 39C)
RAM: OCZ Platinum Rev 2 DDR2 800 MHz (4 x 1GB) 4-4-4-15-T1 (2.1v)
Hard Disk: Seagate 2x250GB SATA ST3250620AS in RAID1
Monitor: Mitsubishi DP900u
Graphics: BFG GeForce 8800GT PCI-E
Sound: SoundBlaster X-Fi Fatal1ty
Speakers: Klipsch ProMedia v.2-400 4.1 speakers
Optical: LiteOn 16X DVD-ROM; Sony DRU-710A DVD-RW

^hes got a point. See if there is an option in the bios to disable that.

This was brought up in another thread....his I believe it was actually. That should have nothing to do with it. a 3pin connector has to be connected to the CPU 3pin on the motherboard for it to even recognize theres a fan there otherwise it won't register it at 0RPM it will just see it as not even being there so I doubt that's the issue.

But like was suggested in the previous thread, throw a fan on that jumper and see if it boots up. Then you can turn off that 'CPU Shutdown when fan fail' option.

You are making sure your water is flowing right? If it's not flowing at all that can and will cause it to overheat
