I hear the fan when I mine for Bitcoins, but only did it for fun.Another followup question - Do you ever hear the fan, other than for brief periods? All the heat produced comes out of the top, so you can certainly move the nMP a few inches to make that warm air less noticeable to you.
You mean to say, that you are surprised that running an application that specifically puts the CPU and GPU into 100% usage over a long period made the machine heat up and the fans work harder?I hear the fan when I mine for Bitcoins, but only did it for fun.
Surely the thing would run better, cooler?
Its thermal design is to dissipate hot air out of the top. You have a maxed out 12 core d700 model and the fan is sucking all that air to the top which is transferring all that thermal energy through the power supply and thermal core while still remaining extremely quiet.I responded to a specific scenario.
Running it day to day, if you put your hand over it, it runs hot. Not mediocre. Hot.
If you are sensing great amounts of heat being propelled away from this device, then the cooling system is doing its job. If the case is burning your fingers and yet the fan is not running, then I would start worrying. Until then, working as advertised.
Your nMP already provides a good cooling solution:...
Thing runs hot.
I will ask my staff to find a cooling solution tomorrow.
