The fan works now but i still get the error... what gives
Did you connect the fan to the HD FAN header on the motherboard, or is it a Molex plug?
Either way, Hard Drives don't generally come with fans, they are installed afterwards, and therefore are usually completely unnecessary. (If they were necessary then the HD manufacturers would include one- which they don't.)
Right now my HDs are hovering around 71 degrees. I haven't had a problem with any of them.
Also, you could simply disable the message in the CMOS setup, I think.
