Hi,
i have some fan problems...
the main chipset unit's fan doesn't spin... i need to open the case & give it a spin manully :rolleyes:
so i tryed to use a util called SpeedFan. when i see that fan2 is at o RPM, i'm clicking the "-" to lower it's speed (it's at 100% but 0 RPM) & then i click the "+" rising it to 100% "again" & it start to run & spin :D
so - my question is - is there a "fan starter" util the does all that auto?

another question - do you have a free solution to keep my system cool & cold without buying more fans?

thanks

The symptoms you described sound like the fan's bearing is shot, more likely than an electrical problem. Change it out with a new one, they are NOT expensive and a heck of a lot cheaper than a new MOBO! :eek:
