Power Supply Fan Header on P4P800-MX

    I have just built a PC using the ASUS P4P800-MX in the Antec Aria
    case. The Antec case has a 12cm fan in the power supply and an
    optional cyclone slot fan. The motherboard has a CPU fan header and a
    chassis fan header, but no power supply fan header. So I plugged the
    12cm power supply fan to the chassis fan header, and the cyclone slot
    fan to a spare 4-pin power cable.

    The system seems to be working fine. However, the included ASUS PC
    Probe utility software sounds an alarm immediately and continuously
    because it can't find the power supply fan to monitor. The utility
    won't let you set the fan threshold below 600 rpm or the alarm volume
    below 1, so the only way to turn off the alarm is to not run the ASUS
    PC Probe utility software.

    Am I missing something? Why would ASUS package this utility with the
    motherboard if it is not compatible? Is there a power supply fan
    header somewhere on this board that I have missed?

    On my version of Probe, you can uncheck unused monitors so that this won't
    happen. It is on the first tab/page. You might want to download the latest
    version of Probe if you have not done so for a while.

    Or forget Asus' Probe - as many users do - and use SiSoft's Sandra or
    Lavalys' Everest.
