So, I was installing a new heatsink about 3 weeks ago and for some reason my comp didnt work afterward...
So, I returned the mobo, and got another one, figuring I had damaged it during the installation...
NOW, all is working fine EXCEPT....
I am getting an alert on the asus probe....it is saying, Chasis fan below threshold!!
What the heck does this mean? and how do i fix it?
I am thinking it has something to do with the PSU....but i dont really know...
On the mobo i plugged a 3 prong power into the Cha 2 fan slot....this didnt fix the problem...

Any help would be MUCH appreciated...thanks!

You have connected the cpu fan to the correct connector on your mobo haven`t you? Your mobo manual will show you where the cpu fan is supposed to be connected.

Do you have a separate chasis fan?

I figured it out :)
The mobo wanted something plugged into the chasis 1 slot...either a fan or the psy works....

not yet, they are wierd....
theres like 6 connectors...all +'s and -'s....
I looked in the manual, and it gives the layout of the USB connectors...but i hooked them up +/- accordingly, and it still didnt work...
I either interpreted it wrong, which is probably the case...OR...the front usb hookup is bad...which is unlikely...
any more suggestions? lol

thanks,
chaz d.
