    Step 2—Installing the front PCI fan in the HP xw8600 Workstation CAUTION: To prevent overheating an HP xw8600 Workstation, a front PCI fan is required when installing the NVIDIA Quadro FX5800 graphics card. If the HP xw8600 Workstation includes dual high- performance graphics cards and lacks a front PCI fan, the BIOS detects an illegal cooling configuration error and reports that the front PCI fan is missing.

    Attach the front fan to the card guide. Place the fan in the card guide with the fan label facing into the card guide and the fan protector screen facing outward. Place the fan wire through the slot in the card guide. Snap the fan into place in the card guide.
