Please note, a rating is only needed when we are finished.
TO confirm Ian, it is detecting the Fan in the Bios correct? Its not saying N/A next to CPU fan?

Hello Richard,
I have seen the following : CPU Fan Speed N/A
but normally after going into BIOS at boot it starts at 300RPM & then goes to 2600RPM after 4 minutes
Expert:  Richard replied 10 months ago.
Thanks.
The most common case is the fans engine is failing, and the Fan will need to be replaced.
It is not an expensive process, and if your handy you can do it yourself, using this fan here
Checking the board specifications, this is the Fan for it

And you will need the Thermal compound which you get here

In nearly all cases in my experience, this will get the fan running correctly again. If it does though continue to have the issue, it would point to a failure on the motherboard, requiring that to be replaced, but I would first replace the fan to rule this out.
