I replaced my damaged AMD Phenom II X4 920 with a 955 (New Egg Page). After install I get a CPU Fan Failure message then it shuts down. What I want to know is whether the fan is bad or if there is a compatability issue. The mobo is a MSI MS-7548 (Aspen) in a HP Pavilion Elite m9660f. If there is a compatability issue any sugestions for an alternative fan that would work would be apretiated.

Are you talking about the proccessor, because I am not worried about that, I don't know why the Phenom II line was left out but it worked fine with the old one (at least it did). I actually got into windows by pluging in the old fan and seting it on the heat sink (checked for a bios update).

 

The question is entirely about whether the fan is defective or just incompatable with my system.

Did you not read the CPU Upgrade Information page? It's not supported.

That never work becuases your mother baord it only AM2+ Socket and CPU your try replace it with call for AM3 Socket also these HP fans are specific to the system and not just any fan will work in these systems, which is why I hate OEM system.
