CPU Quiet Fan on AliveNF4G

Discussion in 'AMD Overclocking' started by Eric Parker, Nov 27, 2006.

    I'm thinking of building a system with this MB using the retail fan.
    In the user manual the CPU fan header has 4 pins
    GND, +12v, CPU_FAN_SPEED and FAN_SPEED_CONTROL.
    My memory of the retail fans (supplied with CPU by AMD) is that they
    are 3 pin.

    Am I unable to use the bios enabled CPU Quiet Fan with this MB &
    retail fan ?

    Thanks

    Eric

    Just to tidy this thread up.
    I got a response from ASROCK about this.

    They say you cannot control the speed the AMD supplied fan with this
    MB.
    It needs to be a fan with a 4 pin connector.
