" rel="nofollow - Greetings, My problem is: 

Whenever I plug a 3 pin fan on the AB350M Pro4 (CHA_FAN1 or CHA_FAN2) it gets crazy, up and down, with peaks of 50.000 rpm.

I know that cannot get same control from a 3 pin fan than from a 4 pin, but that speed is too much, it stays at +-3.000rpm with peaks of 50.000rpm and I checked these numbers on UEFI, Aida64, Speedfan, HWiNFO64, etc

I updated UEFI to 3.10, I load UEFI default, I changed the customize valors for chassis fan on UEFI. But always same result. 
I cannot plug any 3 pin fan because it's gonna break and it is very noisy. 

What can I do? Thanks.

Dear Johusan,

Greetings, this is ASRock TSD.

For this case, we tested on AB350M Pro4 with BIOS P3.10.
Install two 3-pin chassis fans on CHA_FAN1 and CHA_FAN2.
The fan speed are both under range and they also spin properly on the system.
So we would like to provide some suggestions for verifying:
1. Please refer to the user manual to clear CMOS.(Page 27)

2. Please re-flash BIOS P3.10 again.

3. If possible, please change another 3-pin fan for verifying.
4. If possible, please install the fan to another system for verifying.


All the best,
