PC fan power

Post by GerMan » Mon May 11, 2015 5:17 am

hello,
Can one reach anyhow that the PC fan evenly works?
It irritates that he works every few minutes for for a while with full power. :roll:
A relevant setting in the software has apparently no function.


Thanks
Maik

There are 2 fans on board NEO. One for the processor (that you have no control over) and the other for the pan mounted fan (that which you do have control over).

If the processor fan is coming on, then the processor needs additional cooling. That is managed with the processor and it's sensors and we don't do anything to override that as it could possible damage the processor.

Is airflow restricted in anyway? Are you in a warm environment? Some things to think about.

according to the entries in the BIOS only one fan is in function.

The console works in normal surroundings with approx. 20°C.
There are also good PC systems which work fanless.

I believe the fan in the pan is external to the BIOS.

Hello,

I am in a cool environment, and the fan spins up in a loud way every few minutes. The area is clean and free of dust. It has space around it.

This is not o.k. as the control desk is amongst the audience.

If the fan could run at a steady speed it would be a lot better.

Cheers,
Jason

There is the fan that is on the motherboard. That one is in the BIOS and we don't control it. This one is managed by the BIOS and must be that way. The fan on the side of the pan is what is controllable within the System Properties and we put it there to give you the ability to control it.
