How do you know the cooler is out of order?
Fan is the main cause the makes the cooler out of order. Generally you
are not able to tell if it's OK since it's installed inside the case.
Still, two ways are suggested here:
- Buy a cooler with alarm function.
- Buy the kind of mainboard with LDCM (Lan Desk Client Management)
function. The alarm cooler would sound with the beeper when it senses
the inside temperature is over than requirements it set. As for the
kind of mainboard with LDCM would shows signs on screen about the case
temperature, so you would know whether your cooler is still in function
or not. Another method suggested here is when you encounter "continuous
shut-down" that you are not able to find out any reasons, please
immediately check if the cooler in your case is still in function.
- Choose the cooler with rotation speed detection to comply with mainboard
also has the kind of function. You will see fan RPM and speed on screen
and is alert whether it is still in operation.
