Should CPU fan fail warning or even sys fan fail warning be enabled or disabled ? this feature helps or it can lead to more problems than helping to solve any problem ? never activated this feature before , only is the second desktop motherboard that I have anyways and I would like to hear some experiences with this option enabled .

Set cpu fan fail warning to enabled.
It will stop boot process, if fan failure is detected or cpu fan not connected.
It will save your cpu from overheating.

Sys fan fail warning is not so important. You may not have all sys fan headers used (fan connected to it).

thank you for your answer , I have 1 fan on sys fan 2 header that´s why I was asking about that too , the other (3 fans) are connected to the case controller
