    I have a PC that is fitted with an MSI K7T266 Pro2 motherboard. Today I
    finished installing an Asetek Waterchill CPU cooler. When I booted up the
    system again, the BIOS complained that the CPU fan was not running (Duh!!) and
    suggested to shutdown.

    Although I get the option to boot anyway, the message is
    annoying. So, I want to get rid of this. I searched throught the BIOS options
    but couldn't find one that lets me override this check.

    I connected the case fan (which also has a speedindication-wire) to the CPU fan
    connector. (The case fan runs at 2300rpm, the CPU fan used to run at around
    4600rpm). Still the BIOS tells me there is no fan connected...
    I checked with Motherboard Monitor MBM and it detects the case fan
    (and reports it's speed) now connected to the CPU connector on the motherboard.

    So, I think its odd that the BIOS tells me there is no fan connected. I could
    the CPU fan and leave it hanging in the case, but I don't think that is an

    Anyway, if anyone can suggest an easy way to repair this please let me know.
