Uhmm did you check to see if it was off?

No computer will run for 3 days without the CPU fan.. Too many things in place as security measures

There is no way to turn off a CPU fan without physically unplugging it, open up your case and plug it back in.

After you have done that you have two more steps:

1. Ask your friend why he did it,
2. Then take out your frustrations on your friend

Guys if he is gaming and the fan wasn't running less than 5 minutes running that machine it would shut down to due heat or thermals.

There is no way it'll run for 3 days without a fan.

laugh at his joke?

stock cooling will not be able to make it thru a day, even with heavy throttling on the cpu.

now if you have a nice hr-02 or the like and the fan is not working? ok.
