Z420
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello I have a HP Z420 Workstation w/ Xeon E5-1650 v2 cpu. I am looking into adding a Corsair Hydro Series H115i to my system and am looking how to make it compatible. I have already switched to new case so space is not an issue. Form what I've been reading the problems comes from the cpu fan pin connections and in other cases BIOS conflicts. Any help is appreciated.

Hi SJ88,

 

I fitted a custom cooling loop in my HP Z620, i.e. liquid cooled CPU and GPU. To overcome the issue of the BIOS not detecting a CPU cooler at boot, I removed the fan from the standard HP heat-pipe cooler and re-positioned the fan in my Z620 chassis to point at the VRM's which can run rather hot, especially if overclocking.

Since the original CPU fan is still present, there is no BIOS error during boot. You could consider taking a similar approach?
