Then the problem is solved, move on.   :)

  I have researched this and there does not seem to be any setting for
  this
  in the bios. I can only see the current CPU-temp and the fan speed in
  the
  bios.

  The FAN-section in the manual says the following:
  "CPU Fan and System Fan: CPUFAN and SYSFAN
  The CPUFAN (CPU fan) and SYSFAN (system fan) run on +12V and maintain
  system cooling. When connecting the wire to the connectors, always be
  aware that the red wire is the Positive and should be connected to
  the +12V.
  The black wire is Ground and should always be connected to GND.
  FAN_MCM is a switch that is used by high-quality fans to monitor the
  system
  temperature and will automatically adjust according to the
  environment."

  Does this mean that it only runs based on a hidden, preset,
  threshold?

  I have also set a cpu and chassi max temperature threshold (powerdown
  if
  things get too warm I guess?) - but this should be unrelated?

  Connecting the fan to a regular molex connector works, so problem is
  "solvable", but as described when connected to the sysfan 3-pin
  motherboard connector it stops running after boot is completed.

  Thanks for your input.
