Angry Usdm

USDM on my 8RDA+ is showing 000 for fan speed. I bought a new Thermaltake cooler and still 000 !!!! I changed the bios several times and switched some coolers but with the same result. What is wrong with my board? I also downloaded from epox latest USDM but
I give a if you know how can I solve this.

Thank's
Chris

I assume that the fan is working..

Where is your fan plugged into? The speed sensor wire from the fan wires should be installed onto the MB fan jack which is near the CPU. Install the rest of the power wires direct to PS wiring.

Well Paul... the fan is indeed working and the wiring is as you describe. I think I can live with this error since I am running my XP 2500 at 3200 (2250Mhz 180*12.5 48 Celsius) and there is no single mortal soul that can help me see how fast or slow the fan is...performing.

...Chris

Hi Chris,

There are other fan locations on the MB, try one of those. I had one MB that did the same thing to me, and I just moved it to a "chassis Fan" slot.

Good Luck!! Paul...

My 8RDA+ will not even work with a fan connected to the cpu fan header. I get hang ups at the diagnostic screen and the fan speed reports weird numbers like q79n or strange stuff like that. I just plugged it into a 3 to 4 pin molex, which is what I normally do for power, but like to monitor fan speed. That is the only problem I have with my board and the only flaw I have had with any of the SEVERAL EPoX boards I have owned over the years.

Well, connecting the CPU fan via a 3 to 4pin molex connector is very important so as not to draw extra power from the MB. Especially with the current power hungry processors and peripherals, the MB needs all the power it can get.

Monitoring fan speed depends on whether your CPU cooler has a separate line for it's sensor (usually yellow line). If it doesn't and you have an old CPU fan, you can use its 3pin connector and connect the sensor line of your current CPU fan to it then you can connect it to the fan header on the MB. *a word of caution* your CPU cooler wouldn't look as "cool"

If your CPU cooler has separate lines for it's power (usually black and red) and sensor (yellow) then it's very simple, get a 3 to 4pin molex (a must!) to be connected directly to the PSU and then you can connect it's sensor line to the CPU header.

My TermalTake is 7+ and it has a separate yellow wire that goes just for monitoring the speed into the mb conector, the red and black goes into a PSU molex. This is the way tt 7+ is made from factory and that is great, but other than that I used regular coolers with 3 wires and at work no matter what stupid mobo (ECS, SYNTAX...) it'll work as it should, showing the speed...but not into my 8RDA+. I would like to know what epox tech has to say about this fault!!! Thanks guys!!!

Chris

Obviously nothing....from epox tech, but other than MB fan jack which is near the CPU the other 2 jacks are showing the speed. I guess that will do.

Thank's everyone

What speed is the fan running at on the other two jacks?- Just wondering if its near 2000RPM then many CPU fan detection systems seem to regard that as no fan- just wonder if the detection limits are set up differently for the CPU fan detector because of the no fan detection.

The fan from the CPU cooler is pluged into chassis fan and the fan from the Chaintec PSU is pluged into power fan, the first has 2160 rpm and the PSU fan has 2400 rpm. Either of them conected into the CPU fan jack will show 000.

Well the CPU fan is near 2000 rpm, Would be interesting to see if you had a faster fan (3000rpm) with speed sensor whether that would be detected ok on the CPU fan header.
