Hey everyone, problem.
My KT7aR came with a wonderful notice informing me of the 'nessicity' of a heatsink/fan and that it will not boot without a fan registering at 2k+ RPMs on Fan1. Now, my system is being water cooled and my 4 fans are going on a Dual-voltage FanBus so I can lower power while the system idles - any idea on how to get around this besides mounting another fan? Or even if I were to mount another fan - what and where.
Current design is at http://members.tripod.com/~reiycar/comp.htm
The latest BIOS will fix this. I got around it by running a CoolerMaster HS on the NorthBridge chip and plugging it into the #1 fan header.
