Hey all, sorry if this is the wrong section.
I've recently bought some new hardware for my computer:
Geforce GTX 670
Cooler Master 212 Evo
to go with the current stuff I have:
Cooler Master CM 690 II Advanced
16GB DDR3 RAM
Now, since then, every time I start up the computer after it has been off for a long time, then It will come up with the Error "CPU Fan Error Press F1 for setup". If I, say, reboot from Windows to Linux, or vice versa, it won't show the message.
I HAVE tried Overclocking with the ASUS AI Suite, but as far as I know, I've returned it all to factory settings.
Along with this, while playing some games (the ones I've found to do this are Age of Empires Online, Dawn Of War II, and Starcraft 2 Campaign (only recently)) the computer will, without warning, turn off, and reboot. I'm guessing these two problems of mine are related, but when entering the BIOS just after it turning off, nothing I can see is out of the ordinary as far as I know: CPU fan ~1000-1100RPM, CPU ~40-50C, Mobo ~35C.
I do play a lot more than those games, and they run fine, even pretty intense ones like Total War: Shogun 2 and Skyrim.
(I did turn the heatsink around a bit, as in the pics it is a little crooked)
I'm not the best with hardware at all, so I may have done something stupid, and it IS the first time I've tried putting in new computer parts.
Please excuse me if I've left out any info.
