    Hi,

    my motherboard worked fine until I changed my CPU Fan. I connected another 3Pin CPU fan to the CPU Fan connector on the mainboard. After the reboot I got this loud 2 tone sound which indicates that there is no Fan connected at all. (Fan spinned around very well) So I disconnected the new one and put back the old standard 4pin Intel Cooler. To my astonishment, the sound came again. I entered Bios and saw that there is no Fanspeed recognized at all. Even the Fan Speed of OTES1/2 or NB or someting else isn't red.
    -> The mainboard works pretty good, but neither there is any fanspeed recognized in the Bios nor in Windows.

    What could this be? And how can I get my Fanspeed monitoring back ? Is my winbond chip now defectivly ?

    Thx
    Vip

    what was the amperage of the fan you installed? what is the rated amperage for a fan header on your mobo?

    it is possible that you damaged a fan header by overloading it

    the amperage of the new fan was 0.24A. The old one was a 0.12A
    I dunno what amperage is rated for the fan header on my mobo. Where can I find that information?

    If we assume that the fan header was damaged by overloading, what can I do now ?

    Thx
