Mac Pro 2010 Missing Fan

05 Dec 2017, 22:49

in MFC I see fans for PCI, PS, Exhaust, Intake and BoostA. However, I don't see BoostB. Other programs can see the BoostB fan. Any ideas?

BoostB exists is not every model of MacPro. Which program displays it, please show us some screenshots.

I can't see any pics I'm trying to upload. The link above to my dropbox has the picture. Here is a smaller file version:

Some models of MacPro5,1 do have a second boost fan, some not. If you're not sure, try a PRAM reset

As I said, another program sees the fan (see pic link)... so I know the fan exists and is controllable. The System sees it. It's only Macs Fan Control that doesn't see it.
