There is a senior in the fan that may have gone bad. A fan is only $5-+. If you are sure the fans are working you can ignore the message(I would not), or change the onboard fans out with a known good fan till you found the bad fan.
The reason I would not let it go is heat is a killer of computers and thier compontants. If you have a fan failure with the senior bad you wll not be aware of it. If the senior is bad the chances of the fan going out soon are pretty good.
If you choose to live with the message look for erratic behavior like unexpected reboots, and freezing. This is a sign of heat related problems.
Good luck.

:thumbsup: You should have a 3 pin connector on the motherboard labeled "FAN 1" "FAN 2". It will not matter which you plug in. All thought you did not have one, I would install one. Never heard of a computer being too cool.

Download Everest Home Edition (freeware) from
http://www.snapfiles.com/get/everest.html

After you install it, open the "computer" tree by clicking on the +, then on sensor, and see what it says about your fan speeds and how many it shows.

It will also tell you the temps of your processor.
