i upgraded my graphic card to a 1070 but inorder to do so I remove the front fan so the card can fit. Now every time I start my computer up, there is a warning message telling me System fan 1 failure and I have to press f1 to acknowledge it

Is there a way to disable the fan monitor ?

Might depend on the model of X51, Mine has no settings in the BIOS. the R3 at least is a heavily skinned BIOS. Unless there is a way to get to the original. You could always connect the fan, and put it off to the side. Or get a small 10mm thick one and put it next to the cpu fan along the side, or wherever it will fit.
