Just got a Orb today and after about 3 min of it running the fan stopped. When I turn it on now it doesn't do anything but if u kick start it a lil it will start spinning but very slow. Anyone know how or if its possible to fix this?
Preferrably, take it back and get another unit. Never trust a cooling solution that may fail at any time. You could try oiling the bearing, but I'd trust it less far than I could throw it. Replacing the fan or the unit is a better solution.
What exactly is a fan header im new to all this? Other fans work fine on the connector on the motherboard if thats what your talking about. It just seems this fan doesn't move/seems like its not getting enough power to push itself.
A fan header is the white connection on the motherboard you connect the fan too. Now if I remember right, you said other fans work on that header. So I would presume that its the actual fan itself. I would return it as soon as you can. Some places are bad about returns/exchanges. So better to get it done now then find out later you cant. But thats my 2 coppers.
