STK2M364CC BIOS option missing: Fan Mode - M3 "Fan is always off"

Hello!

 

After reading reviews of Compute Stick STK2M364CC bought it to use in 100% silent mode - as seen on BIOS settings screenshot from Anandtech review.

 

However the only BIOS option I care about - Fan Mode - M3 "Fan is always off" - is not available for me, only M1 and M2 are displayed.

 

My Compute Stick is running latest BIOS as of now - 0062.

 

How can I switch Compute Stick STK2M364CC fanless mode?

 

Thanks!

I have the same Compute Stick and there is no M3 (fanless) mode in Bios. The picture in Anandtech review are taken from Bios version 0033 and indeed you can see in the help text that there is M3 mode. However, on the image you can see that M1 mode is set. This was mistake in the help test. You can see in the Bios release notes that in Bios version 036 it was corrected: "Removed the help text of the setup item "Fan Mode" "

There simply is no fanless mode. The sticks are not designed to run without the fan. Since the fan is almost impossible to hear, this shouldn't be an issue.

Thanks for answers! Guess I should've done better research before buying the stick.

 

>> Since the fan is almost impossible to hear, this shouldn't be an issue.

The high-pitched noise from such a small fan is quite noticable for me unfortunately.
