Default Please!

Hi everyone,
how to simulate a fan (to fool the computer) on a 3 pin system fan connector (ground-+12V-sensor)?
Thanks.

Measure the DC resistance on the gnd/12V leads from the fan and match it with a fixed resistance maybe? Worth a try.

Are you trying to get the computer to not give you the "CPU fan fail" warning at boot?

Look in the bios settings for a setting about CPU fan check and disable if possible.

Bios settings, or use the speed signal from another fan in the system. Or use an oscillator to fake a signal.

Exactly.

That´s not an option in this custom-made BIOS/MoBo.

I once solved the problem with a resistor between sensor and ground. It does not seem to work this time.

Hi

You will need a “Pseudo Fan” to fool the controller. The controller needs to see a square wave to “think” that the fan is running.

See July/August issue of Elektor page 17.

Cheers

dangus and stinius,
interconnecting the sensors of system fan and processor fan (which is active) would be a simple enough solution.

If you have an extra fan and your motherboard can use speedfan, just connect the extra fan and set speedfan to auto disable to fan after booting into Windows.

That's what I do anyway. My mainboard is also OEM with no option to disable CPU fan warning. And I have a Scythe Ninja to run fanless an undervolted A64 with.

Hi,
no success yet, fan speed control is very problematic these days...
