Ok ive just bought a new psu, 700w hooked it up and everything is fine exept my cpu fan:eek:. Right where do i start.... I boot up my pc and right away i get the hi low alarm witch indicates the cpu fan is running slow, and sure enough its only giving me 1900 rpm:bawl:. but it then gose up too 2058-3021-1200--
I would then have to guess that the PSU is somehow faulty. What is the manufacturor/model of the PSU?
Hi thanks for the replie so quick:)..
It is the jeantech storm 700w sli/cross-fire.
Hmmm im thinkin, with the new psu there is 2 connectors saying case fan...
so i hooked up my case fan (obviusly) to 1 of em, but i also hooked up my cpu fan up to the other1----
Any help please guys?

3-pin fan headers coming off power supplies are often attached to a thermal diode inside the PSU. It gets hotter, they spin faster. And there isn't a good correlation between CPU and internal PSU temps.
Ah so this is my problem then..i was begining to think it was, so if i just connect my cpu fan to the 12v connector all should be fine? i hope.
thanks for you replies
Yeah. If it keeps it up, then you probably have a problem with the fan itself. But I'd wager it's due to the PSU connectors being what they are--connectors on a PSU.
Thanks alot for your replies..aprieciated.
