Fans in Cintiq

Postby SamxFisher » Wed 21. Jul 2021, 20:39

Hi, I have 2 questions about fans inside Cintiq.

1. First one is, why does Cintiq 27 QHD has 2 fans inside?
I've been using a Cintiq 27 QHD touch for about 3 years, and I have seen a picture where this Cintiq have 2 fans, but never heard any noise in my Cintiq 27QHD Touch. So, could be that my cintiq fans are broken?


2. I'm thinking of getting a cintiq pro 16 because I've heard that it has fans to refresh the screen, are the cintiq pro 16 fans for cooling the screen glass? or it's only for cooling internal components? I get so tired to feel the hot zones on my hand when I use my Cintiq 27QHD touch, and would like to know if cintiq pro 16 screen is always cool.

Hi Sam,

Yes, there are fans inside some of our pen displays. These are there to cool down the internal components that warm up when electricity courses through them.

While cooling down the back of the device, the fans are not meant to cool down the front of the display. The air is only blowing through the back of the device an not the front.
Most of the heat you get on the surface, comes from the LCD backlight. Here you can try lowering the brightness which should help the display keeping a lower temperature. However, the LCD will always warm up a little. This is inevitable.
