Hi joice79, Welcome to the ROG community. Can I ask what cpu cooler you are using?

Does that fan that is connected to the CPU_OPT header spin?

can you unplug the fan in question from CPU_OPT and plug it into other headers in the motherboard and see if the rpm shows up?

CHA_FAN is fine too. just for testing purposes
no siggy, saw stuff that made me sad.
