Question
Why are the X460 fans so loud with the XGM module installed?
Environment
  • EXOS
  • Summit
  • X460
  • X480
  • XGM
  • XGM3S-2xf
Answer
This is considered a normal behavior and it occurs because there is an additional temperature sensor on the module itself which runs hotter than the other sensors. This triggers the fans to run in high-speed mode more often, and the fans are substantially louder as a result.
