While booting there is a CPU Fan Error Reward $1
Created by Owasisjim, 274 days ago, 343 views

Hey everyone,
The thing is though , that the error only occurs once in a while! When it does I am checking whether or not the fans are running! Often the issue is resolved by simply restarting the computer.
Regarding my problem these are the parts that matter I feel

CPU: i7-6700k MoBo: Asus Z1700 pro gaming aura Cooling: Nzxt X61 Kraken Case: NZXT H440

I checked the cables, they are all in place (they are plugged into the motherboard as well as into the fan control module that came with the case!).

Any ideas what else to do besides checking the cables all over again?

Thanks in advance!

Some motherboards have 2 CPU fan connectors (1 is used for a water pump), make sure you are using the right one (check the manual and/or YouTube videos). Also try connecting it directly without the case controller you mentioned.

1) Enter the BIOS, switch it to Advanced Mode and navigate to the Monitor tab.

2) On the Monitor tab, set the CPU Fan Speed from N/A (Not available) to IGNORE. Press F10 to save changes and exit.

This will disable the sensor and allow you to boot normally.

or you need to reset the minimum fan speed maybe to 550 rpm.
some coolers run very quiet because they do not need high rpm fans.

It also happens that the cooler plug is three-pin, and the connector on the motherboard is four-pin. You can connect them, and everything will spin, but the BIOS may not recognize the speed sensor and there will still be the same error. This is rare, and usually everything is fine. But if this is your case, then there are two options: either select compatible equipment, or ignore the error. Read this forehead here:

Laptop fan run according to need, not with our will. UNTIL HEAT SINK CAN ABSORB ENOUGH HEAT, FAN NOT RUN.
