I’ve got the 11th Gen Framework. A few months ago, the fan started kicking on high immediately upon booting the laptop. This is not your normal fan ramping up or down, but rather the fan running high (and is quite loud). The fan kicks on in the BIOS screen and very occasionally pauses for a few seconds before kicking back on high again.
I tried replacing the thermal paste on the CPU, but it did no good. I’m not surprised because my CPU temps are fine; at idle, they average around 25-30C. This doesn’t seem like an overheating issue to me.
BIOS: 3.10 (GFW30.03.10)
SSD: WD_Black SN850 (firmware updated)
RAM: Crucial 8GB DDR4-3200 x 2 (16GB total)
OS: Windows 10.19044.2251
Has anyone else run into this issue? There doesn’t seem to be a logical reason for the fan to be running at full speed. Maybe my fan needs to be replaced?
Thanks for any direction.
