Hello,

I have received the PicoPC 8GB 256GB SSD earlier this month. In a nutshell, the PC is working, except for the noise!!

The noice sounds on a high frequency and it is not acceptable. In other words, I can't use the PC for office work as planned...

Do you have any hints or ideas how I should proceed

Thx, Christian

Maybe put it somewhere a bit further away.   One of the tradeoffs with small devices is small fans, and small fans have to run faster.   I notice the fan on my desktop, but if it were a real issue I'd just stick it under my desk and pull the USB and drive cables up.   No biggy.

You should hear my Power Station computer for work with Dual Xeon and Ampere 3090 when I render 3D graphics  😀 it`s like a helicopter above your head.

Anyway that's correct noise...is not annoying but you must understand that using a CPU on that frequency with GPU integrated into a very small space required really good ventilation! Pantera is a really, really small PC (I think the smallest on the market with that specification)

Of course, I understand that some people are disturbed by high pitch noise.

On the other hand, when I installed Core Temp software I see that CPU is not that hot when is stressed (80 degrees Celsius is not extreme) so I think about reducing the speed of the fan (let me correct by BIOS or maybe will try by software)

I have the same issue. The fan makes a high frequency pitch around 3500-4000Hz. I have already put the XDO behind my monitor, but still it is very clear audible AND annoying!
What can be done to change this?

I think this is the problem with high Fan RPM on the CPU. You cannot do anything with this. That's the "cost and sacrifice" of the miniaturization of the Pantera case. Maybe in the future developer will add an option to reduce speed on specific temperatures from BIOS. Windows CPU monitoring (Core Temp, etc) software does not see this CPU FAN so you cannot control it.

Is there any UEFI/BIOS setting to reduce the fan speed if load is low? From the thread here, I assume not??

One way I am handling this is to put the Pico PC to sleep after relatively short time idling, 15min. In sleep, or of course hibernation, the fan is stopped. I even set this up as a server where I am able to use Wake on LAN from a Raspberry Pi box or a Lenovo M92p on my lab sub-net. Have to measure to see if the M92p or Pi3b board draw less power than the XDO Pico PC. They are quieter!
