Aikitio Node Pro – PSU fan not spinning

Hi,

I purchased a used Aikitio Node Pro and fitted it with a XFX AMD 580. The setup works fine (though still need to iron out a few glitches).

The enclosure fan is spinning OK, at constant speed. But the PSU fan hasn't spun at all so far. Is this normal? Does it only kick in above a certain temperature?

Many thanks!

@macbowtie The PSU should be running when it’s connected to a Thunderbolt 3 host. That behavior does not seem normal.

@itsage I did a GPU performance test with Unigine Heaven, and the PSU fan starts running as soon as I put enough load onto the GPU, and then stop again shortly after I quit Heaven. Could it be that there has been a quiet update to the Node Pro's PSU?
