Question about ASUS M3A78-CM AMD 780V AM2+ Phenom FX / Phenom X4 / Phenom X2 / Athlon X2 /AM2 Athlon 64 X2 / Athlon... Motherboard
I bought an Asus M3a78-cm to a board that fried on an HP a1600n that i've been working on. Everything work fine except for the annoiance of the CPU fan running on high constantly. I'm using the stock heatsink & cpufan from HP it has a 3hole plug mobo has 4 pins. Is there anyway to disable or reduce speed in the BIOS? the CPU temp is running at 35
The problem is that the mother board you are now using has a 4th wire that sences cpu temp this allow the heat sink fan to change speed to get this to work correctly you will need to replace the fan with a 4 wire style. what is happening is your not getting a temp siginal back to motherboard so the fan controller think it hot and send full power to fan alll the time the stock fan in hp systems is not very good any way .Get a good heat sink and fan to fit your new board ebay has them very cheap 5.00 to 20.00 this will all so increase you system temp and all get the proper cooling when you really need it.

Asus mobos are junk, and should be avoided. If you do decide to send your Asus mobo in for warranty repairs, be sure to take pictures of your mobo before sending it to Asus, because Asus has earned a reputation of physically damaging equipment that is returned under warranty, in order to evade making warranty repairs
