I can not verify the correct operation of the system fan.
I have read and understand and have tried this tip on the product page:
Please note that when you have powered on but the fan does not rotate, it may be due to the following reasons.
The CPU itself does not have a temperature sensor. The temperature sensor is on the PCB, close to the CPU.
The temperature threshold set in the BIOS is based on the temperature of the PCB, not the temperature of the CPU.
There is a delay in the CPU temperature transfer to the PCB. At this time, please try to let the CPU run at full load for 20 minutes.
Per information on product support page, I have updated the BIOS on this system to:
SD-BS-CJ41G-300-101-F.zip and SD-EC-CJ41G-M-101-M.zip
When BIOS fan control is set to normal or positive, the fan “chirps”- it pulses and twitches for a moment, then stops, regardless of PCB temperature. The CPU fan speed indicator in bios shows brief flashes up to 7000RPM before returning to N/A.
When BIOS fan control is set to “Always On”, fan stops “chirping” and simply does not run.
I have observed non-contact IR back of board temps >50C after 20 minutes, and seen CPU throttle Mhz from ~2400 to ~1900Mhz while under thermal load.
How do I verify the correct operation of the fan?
How to get fan to stay on all the time, or demonstrate that fan comes on correctly under thermal load?
Where do I find the location of the most up to date BIOS files for the system? (Note that is is newer J4125 system, and NOT original J4105.) Is newer BIOS available for this board revision?
