Hi, I've been using my computer for a long time now <1 year and my hyper 212 evo fan has stopped working, the fan just suddenly stopped working, literally. I replaced it with my stock one, note I have an FX 8320. The next day, I go and play a game, one of my three monitors loses its connection (I think it was the cable) then stuff started flickering, I turned it off and back on and I saw nothing. I then took out the CPU cooler and put it back in, now its functional again. What should I do? I've heard good things about this forum and I don't know where I should put this. My temps now are currently all under 45 on idle

I'm really nervous on what to do.

There's a possibility that you did not have the heatsink properly set the first time when you ran into problems, poor contact will cause the cpu to run slower so it won't overheat itself, which could have caused the erratic behavior you experienced the first time....Use HWMonitor to keep a track of your cpu temps just in case

I already removed the fan and now using the stock, so that's out of the equasion.

The temps look good, but your +12v and +5v looks way out of spec, you might need a better power supply

What do you currently use for your power supply? Name brand and wattage?

What's the problem? The temperatures look fine.

This could also be an issue with HWMonitor.  On mine it reads most of the voltages completely wrong.  This wouldn't be running if the voltages reported here were right.  Best way to verify is with a multi meter.

Yup... looks like HWMonitor isn't picking up the sensors correctly or the sensors are off. I agree a volt meter is the most accurate. Speed Fans voltages look wrong too, and I did not see what Speccy reports because I can't get the link to show anything

some cheap-o one.

I really need to get something better.

thermaltake t60 iirc?

This is the stock fan. Not my aftermarket one.

I thought amd and sensors were not the most optimal

I don't think you need to do anything about the fan since the temps are ok.

 

Is the 3rd monitor always blank now? I'm still not sure what the problem is.

I thought I clarified this, the fan used in this was the stock cooler. Should I spray the inside of my fan with a lubricant? I've heard that'll fix it. Also I think it was a graphical issue since I took out my motherboard and put it back in.

Correct me if I am still not getting it, but I think you are saying that the graphical problems are gone now, and that your stock fan works just fine. So I think you are saying your only problem is you want to fix your aftermarket fan even though you don't need to. Sorry, I don't have any advice on fixing those fans.

You can replace the Evo 212 fan with almost any standard 120mm fan (PWM fan recommended). They don,t cost much. This is a far better option than trying to fix a broken fan.

 

A Noctua NF-F12 is a very good option, but quite expensive or something like the Arctic F12 PWM is a cheaper option.  Both are fairly quiet fans with high airflow.

 

As for the monitor, flickering does sound connection related.  Try disconnecting both ends of the cable and reconnect firmly.  Something as simple as re-making the connection can help.  If that doesn't work try another cable.
