    Intel compute Stick Stk1aw32sc weird Fan Noise




      My Intel compute Stick Stk1aw32sc is quite silent while working on Internet or normal load (Word, Excel). As soon as the CPU goes to a high Utilization (e.g. 70%+) then there is a weird noise coming from the fan like a mild rattle (Similar to the normal noise from a hard Drive with spinning disks when reading/writing data). Now, it doesn’t seem to be the fan as when I go to YouTube and the noise is happening and suddenly I pause the video, the noise disappears straight away and I can still hear the light noise of the fan whirl.

      The noise is only audible when you are quite close to the unit.


      Is this normal? Has anyone noticed this in your Compute Stick?
