780I 3-pin header

Recommended Posts

After installing a new case fan tonight and hooking it up to the forward 3-pin header, the computer won't post/beep. Immediately after unhooking the 3-pin and turning on the power, it booted right up. One more time to make sure indeed proved using this particular header will not allow the computer to post at all.Anyone had a similar problem?Should also note I tried two different working fans on the same header--same issue.

Maybe connecting the new fan pushed the PSU over the edge? I don't know anything else that would explain this...James Lunsford

Nope. And even if that were an option, the fan runs fine on a more out of the way header. But thanks for a reply!

Has the fan header ever been operational, to your knowledge? If that is the *only* malfunction with your board and you don't want to RMA it, I'd suggest simply getting one of those 3 to 4 pin molex adapters for your fan.

Darn, thought I could have sounded smart for once! :( James Lunsford
