Hi,

I replaced me initial ux31a because of light bleed. That one was quiet at least. This new one's fan is always spinning and driving me crazy! Is it possible the tim on the cpu is bad? idles around 47 degrees with 3300 rpm fan speed.

Thanks.

so you mean you replace new fan? could you check is it complete install, like screw locking, install fan normal.because you idle temp is good.

This is the second UX31a I bought. I returned the first because the light bleed along the corners of screen was too much. But that one was quiet at least. The new one idles anywhere from 48 degrees to 67 degrees and the fan goes on and off on and off. I bet the thermal interface material on the CPU is no good. It's a new system with fresh install. All I did was update the bios to 218 and maybe update a few drivers and install antivirus. Seems like another quality control issue. I don't have time for this. Thank you.
