  3. Hardware Problem Crosshair V Formula Z Motherboard

I have a Crosshair V Formula Z Motherboard.

The Opt 3 fan socket reads 0 RPM and Windows is giving me warnings even when a fan isn't hooked up to it.

If I do plug a fan into it, yup the fan doesn't work. Fans do work on other slots. For those of you wondering why this slot is remotely important, it's the one closest to where you'd put in a 120/140 mm fan near the back of the case.

Is there something messed up in the BIOS? Or yup that slot in broken, here is how you disable that annoying alarm.

You should be able to disable the alarm in BIOS, but I'm betting the header is dead. Just to make sure, it never some up, not even during POST, right?

Nope, I've never once seen a fan be powered by this port.

Originally when the problem happened I thought it was a bad/old fan.
