    Default Error after installing new cooler on the CPU.

    Hey all.

    A couple of days ago I acquired a new cooler with heatsink for my processor, a CoolerMaster 212.

    Installation was all fine and dandy until I started up my PC. During the 1st screen where you can load bios and boot device order I got a big flashing error that the CPU fan was failing. I panicked and opened the case to see the fan spinning just fine at what seemed a normal RPM.

    I entered BIOS and saw that under the "CPU fan RPM" I had no values so in order to boot I had to set it to "ignore" so that I did not get the error anymore, but I don't really fancy this because if , God forbid, the fan does fail I won't get any notice.

    I thought what might be the issue and the only think I could come up with is that it's caused by the fact that the 212 uses a 3 pin connection on the MB whilst my old stock Akasa cooler used a 4 pin.

    Could that be it or is it some error that requires me to take the cooler back? Or maybe a BIOS flash would fix it?

    I know it should not be possible to get it wrong but check you are on the correct 3 out of the 4 pins and plug the right way round.
