Cintiq 4K Pro 32 Fan noise?

Postby satoer » Fri 16. Nov 2018, 12:26

Finally after 4 years waiting the 32inch 4k Cintiq pro finally came out. Just before I want to order it I looked at some reviews of the 24. Turns out the 24 pro has a loud fan inside it? What’s up with that? Why does it need a fan. My other 4K monitors and Wacom tablets don’t need a fan. Even my old Cintiq is silent.

I hate fan noise, especially those small laptop blowers. I have a completely silent workspace. The heavy desktop computers I work with, are all in a separate room. Does the 32 Cintiq pro also has a fan? Is it hearable on 100% brightness? This would be such a bummer.

Does the new 4K Cintiq pro 32 has a build in fan?

The Cintiq Pro 32 inch does have fans. The fans keep the device running at an ideal temperature. I have been using a Cintiq Pro 32 and I have not noticed any fan noise. We are working in a quiet office space. I am using the brightness setting at 92 to reduce eye strain but I'm sure I can bump it to 100 without hearing any fan noise. I can only hear some faint noise when I get my ear directly above the exhaust vents. Comparing to the Cintiq Pro 24, since this is a larger device, there is more space for air to circulate which seems to help keep the fans work to a minimum.

I was worried about that too--but the noise is very minimal. I've only heard the fan come on twice--and both times it was when I wasn't even working on the Cintiq.

Weirdly, it does get warmest right in the center where you might work most. My 27 got warm up on top where I didn't use it much. It's nice now in cold Minnesota, but might be a little annoying on hot summer days.

I had the cintiq pro 16 in my super quite studio and I had to return it because the fan noise, there was a constant fan noise running and a whistle when heavy fan workload, brightness never at 100% but around 80-90%

I work with a Macbook pro, and fan noise of the cintiq was louder and constant, pretty sure because the fan is much closer to your head than the macbook, anyway, the problem was there, I dont know if the extremely thinnes of the product makes the need of the fan, or is just something you can't avoid from a technical POV... on the other hand you have the iPad Pro, which is thinner than a pen, it has a SOC and a battery inside and the pen behaviour is outstanding... fanless, acceptable temperature to work long hours...

I guess there should be something in between
