    I know MBM has been out for quite a while and I have used it for months. But, last night I was awakened by my computer beeping. MBM had detected that my CPU fan had stopped working and set off an alarm. Ended up the plug had somehow come loose. I had installed some rounded cables the other day and probably tugged on the fans power wire enough to pull it to where it was almost off.

    Props to Motherboard Monitor. :)

    No damage at all. :) Woke me up quick, saw what it was and I shut the machine down. Opened it up this morning and found the plug. All's good. :)


    Yep, I shoulda added the link. Thanks Iceman.

    Good deal, had you not had MBM installed or another monitoring program, you would have toasted your CPU.

    Man that is a scary thought, no computer....................

    No false alarms here. But, I'd rather have a false alarm than no alarm. :eek: I have been thoroughly happy with MBM.

    Does it work with AMD Athlon 1.7Ghz? I'd tried v5 and I can't get it to work.
