That’s where I have connected it right now. I would try putting it in the slots closest to the CPU first. I will work on re-connecting these fans in an hour or two when I get home. Yes, I’ve read the mobo manual about 50 times, and that doesn’t really help.
A 4-pin “molex” connector arranged in a square pattern and a pin connector, which can actually be split into a pin and 4-pin connector. Recently it just stopped working.

I’m think maybe I should move on to a different mobo, maybe another brand would work better? Joined Sep 27, Messages 2, 0. Anyone have any thoughts? Does anyone have any ideas on what might be causing this problem?
So checking the connections, I do in fact have the 3-wire lead from the CPU fan going to the 4-pin connection on the MoBo, and there are plastic parts on the connector that only allow it to mate up one way.

So therefore, one of the rails can possibly be dead since you have no monitor output. I will reply back soon with my success or latest failure In the meantime, I decided to order another mobo so that I could get up and running while waiting for the original to be repaired. The power supply it’s running is off an HP i recently baught and gutted for my new system.
Is it time to return the mobo for a replacement? I had pretty much come to the conclusion that my mobo had a problem, so I went and got an RMA for it last week.
Problem with power connection to ECS nFORCE4M-A mobo
Are there any other possibilities I should try? Joined Feb 7, Messages 1, 0.
I’m hoping maybe someone on this forum can help me out. I’m curiouse if maybe since it was an AMD based system, if the PSU was special for the AMD mobo and processor could it have possibly shorted out the motherboard over the past month it was installed.
I’ll take a picture of my connections later this evening and try posting them to this site. If i connect my CPU fan to the wrong connector then my system won’t boot.

I guess it’s time to send this board back and try to get a replacement. Oddly, they state you should connect “PWR1” to the “auxiliary case power supply”. That could cause problems.

Joined Oct 3, Messages 27 0. I know that’s pretty out there, but i’m considering it a possibility because i don’t know else could be causing the problem on my system since it worked fine for so long.
If so, do I need to modify the fan connectors from my case? I’ll probably try removing everything and building it back up again just to check. How about a problem with the CPU?
