Hi, I have just received my Gotway MCM 5 v2 and when I powered it up straight from the box the fan is cutting in and out constantly like a revving sound, is this normal or faulty? I have never seen anyone mention this in a review.

thanks for your time

I've asked GW directly about this, supposedly it's normal behavior. The fan does become constant if the temperature gets above I believe 40C. Not sure why they made this decision but it's not a bug ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Salut, je viens de recevoir mon Gotway MCM 5 v2 et quand je l'ai mis sous tension directement de la boîte, le ventilateur entre et sort constamment comme un son qui tourne, est-ce normal ou défectueux? Je n'ai jamais vu personne mentionner cela dans une critique.

Merci pour votre temps

I got an answer:

This intermittent fan noise is completely normal. In any case, all the Gotway wheels with the last motherboard have this noise (I got confirmation from a dealer who tested them).

Why do the fans react like that ?
>> In fact, they work in relation to the motherboard. There is a temperature sensor that adjusts the speed to the temperature. This is to limit the inertia of the motherboard: when it rises in Temperature, even after the fan is triggered, the motherboard continues to rise in Temperature for a certain time, and since the motherboard can rise in Temperature very quickly, this early triggering limits the phenomenon.
