Intel s5520hc fan connector problem



Hey guys, 


I recently got my hands on an  s5520hc setup with dual x5690 Xeons for a good price. I plan to use it for some visualisation experiments. I successfully build the system and upgraded BIOS etc. to the newest software. But the system is schowwing an error, the CPU0 Fan check LED is glowing ember, I assume that means that there's a Problem with the cpu0 fan. I checked in Windows and the fanspeed is normally showing up. There are also no thermal problems. As an result of that error the fans are spinning at full throttle, and thats pretty annoying in the livingroom. Do you guys have any suggestions or solutions for this problem? 


My config:

Mainboard: Intel s5520hc

bios version: R0069

cpu: 2x Xeon X5690

Ram: 96gb

Fans: 6 case fans, 2 CPU fans

psu: Sharkoon WPM Gold Zero 750w with two 8 pin eps connectors

gpu: gt730s
