All computer fans stopped working while gaming.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I got a new PC a few weeks ago and everything was going well, however today I was playing a game (Stellaris) and it suddenly started to lag, so I closed the game, but noticed the computer was acting funny so I checked on the temps and stuff and the cpu was at like 98 degrees!!! 

That's when I looked at the computer itself and noticed that no fans were turning at all. Case fans and CPU fan. I do not have very much tech knowledge, so I'm at a loss for what to do. (I opened the case and blew a fan in there to cool it down. looked again after a few minutes and the rear fan is spinning, I dont think it was before, but I honestly cant say for sure) 

 

Resetting the computer to check for any BIOS errors resulted in the computer starting up normally, fans and all. Anyone know what could have caused this issue? 

 

CPU: Ryzen 5 3600 (Stock cooler)

Motherboard: ROF strix 470x-F gaming

GPU: Sapphire pulse Radeon RX 5700 XT

PSU: Corsair Vengeance 750M 750 W

So for sure the intake and CPU fans stopped working?  I assume those are all connected to headers on the mobo for power or are they connected to PSU via adapter?

Yes, for sure the intake fans and CPU fans were stopped. I'm almost positive the exhaust fan was off but turned itself back on, but that I cannot be certain of 100%. 

Yes they are all connected to mobo headers, and I'm positive they are in the correct ones.

How many fans per header you have plugged in? If its too many they may have problem drawing enough power.

Also try to reset bios , maybe some settings gets mixed up.

I'm not sure as i didn't build the PC alone, i had a ton of help. I'm pretty sure that the intake fans (two fans), the exhaust fan (one fan) and the CPU fan all have their own spot on the motherboard. Sorry I'm not very tech savvy.

My friend and i went over the bios and everything should be working as intended. We are both at a loss here.

If it happens again, then there really is problem. Could be one of and never happen again.

 

As for setup, this is easy to check by opening case and checking every cable is plugged fully in.
