I removed the fans for cleaning the dust. Now the left fan is always at 100%. Can anybody help me with that problem? Is it possible to somehow misconnect the fan? Or did I accidently did something to the temperature sensors?

DId you manage to fix the problem? I have the same issue with the right fan.

James Reid -

I have the exact same issue on the “right” fan.

I wonder if it broke by blowing air through it
