Fan error Asus P9X79 - system shuts down


Dec 17, 2016
The system worked fine for almost 2 years and then I get the CPU fan error on boot up. If I go into bios I see the temp climbing past 70C. The system has a Corsair cooler that seems to be working, one hose hot and the other cold. The CPU is an i7-4960X that is overclocked.
