what is the fan chassis?

By arod35 ·
I have an intermitant rebooting problem. I have been told that it could be the fan. I ran a diagnostic from the cd included in the upgrade and repair manual and it alarms when the fan chassis is check. Is it the actual heatsink with the fan. I have a Pii on a dfi motherboard p2xbl..Basically, the test reads abnoral fan chassis.

It is the fan; the rotations per minute are not at par... replace it.

7.CPU Fan / Chassis(System) Fan RPM Lower Limit:
If the fan RPM is slower than this value and "Warning When CPU/Chassis
Fan abnomal" is enabled, the PC speaker willalarm and the monitor
software will pop up a window to inform user.

Most PII systems do not have a "chassis" fan. I suspect that your CPU fan is clogged with dust and/or the ball bearing inside are flat. Replace that fan ASAP. Fry's still sells these CPU fans for $12.

If the BIOS indication is for a chassis fan, this is 'normally' a fan mounted to the front or rear of the PC case (chassis).

The RPM could be slowed by dust blocking the air inlet, or a bad fan.

I have 6 fans in my case.
3 of which are monitored by the motherboard.

CPU fan,
Case (chassis fan)
Power supply second fan

The other 3 fans are:
Power supply main fan
Video card fan
Second case fan

The motherboard can only monitor fans that are plugged into the 3 pin fan headers on the motherboard.

If ONLY your CPU fan is plugged into a 3 pin header, I would replace the CPU fan as soon as possible.

With a PII system, it is very possible that the bearings on all fans are wearing out.

A good source for inexpensive replacement fans is www.hosfelt.com

CAUTION: if you change the power supply fan have power un-plugged, and be VERY careful. There are high voltages present inside the power supply!!!
