hi again,
hm... doesnt the fan spin up fully at power-on first and is then
throttled down afterwards (by software)? this is usually done because
not all fans have the same start up voltage. some start at 6V or even
less, others need more than 10V (even if they continue spinning at lower
levels after getting to speed once). this shouldnt be different even
for 4-pin fans i think...

well as long as it is related to flashrom, it is right. not sure if
everyone subscribed to the list (>200 ppl) is interested in personal
recovery stories though :)
if you find a solution for your problem that might be interesting for
others too, i'd love to hear it! good luck
Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Stefan Tauner
