    Shuttle X System Fan Issues

    Hi, we have a really annoying problem here, 4 out of our 7 shuttle PC's used for video editing purposes have a problem with the main system fan. Basically, it has stopped working, but if you re-seat everything in the machine, and I mean everything, from processor to memory, battery to hard drive, you can get the fan working for around 2 restarts, and then it falls over again. The machine will still power on and work fine, until it overheats and so switches off under the fail-safes!

    Now, I was wondering whether there was anybody else out there that has had shuttle X series and had any similar problems, or, has experience in dealing with these problematic little oinks.

    If you have could you get back to me.

    Thanks

    It isn't a BIOS-controlled tempreature dependent fan of some kind is it?

    Check the BIOS for any settings concerning fans.

    We have one Shuttle X-Series and it's gone through 3 fans and all the motherboard fan headers.

    Call me stupid [yes, you may] but isn't it just the fan reaching its EOL [end of life].

    Have you tried getting a replacement fan?

    You're stupid! Even if you reconnect a new fan, it does not work, and the fan will work on the fan heads 2 or 3, looks as if its a common problem by the posts ive read over the internet where the FCU (fan controller Unit) fails on head 1.

    How about just getting a normal Molex to fan converter cable? Fine the fan will run at full speed but at least it will be running and not cookin
