Cooling. Fan speed/noise
#1
Is there any dependency on fan speed to cpu temperature? Can fan vary it speed or just stop/run?
Have read that AK1 can stop fan depending on CPU Load or Temp.

On my device the fan is always running full speed, also if cpu temp is below 50°. Its absolutely annoying and impossible to work with device in same room.
Have tried all bios settings - just no effect at all.
Any advice?

ACEPC Support does not answer me. This forum and site does not have any download section for GK1.
I suppose my problem could be solved with newer Firmware or BIOS Version.
Where can I find this? How can I get answers from Support?

I would like to be able to help you. Yes on Ak1, there is dependency on fan speed to cpu temperature. The strangest is thats not the case with GK1.
I will get soon this mini PC GK1, but for the moment, can you tell us if bios gives information on fan speed, speed control or something like that?
Maybe can you share some pics of the bios menu? Wink

Hi there. I have the same problem. The fan noise is unbearable. Just contacted Gearbest and try to return it. Please let me know if there is a way to regulate the fan.

Thanks

Anyone here have a unit and open it up and see how many wires go to the fan

The fan has 2 wires and is powered by 5v. There doesn't seem to be an easy way to control fan speed. I guess the fanless option they put out as the GK2 would be the one you want.

Well, I got mine since several days, but... As I disassembled it to capture every detail, a bad move probably and the fan solder broke ...
I have now replaced the original fan with the Noctua NH A4x10, as for the Acepc Ak1. After tests, considering that the fan runs continuously, this Noctua is so quiet that it is no longer awkward!

Here is how I proceeded:

Only two wires suggest that the fan is on or off , no speed control but the pulled off connector shows 3 solder points so maybe its possible to modify .

Probably, I will try to solder back a fan to the right place.

It should still be able to control this fan from the bios.
Moreover, in this same bios, it is not possible to activate the internal SSD M2 port.

This bios really needs to be updated!
