    Sounds like some setting, cable, or pin is incorrect or loose... although it is common for new fans to be bad... Look for bad connectors or wires pulled loose.

    Not a water cooling issue, but go back through the online manual... we all miss something.

    no i said if this stuff with the fan keeps up imma switch it up to water cooling. does anyone read those you cant get it wrong ever, I wonder if theres an adapter from the psu rigth into the cpu fan.

    anyways, the name is oscar tell me a thing or 2 about this tech forum if you will?
