Default Qn RE: Enermax fan in Allen Stein Desktop DAW

Hey there.

Built an Allen Stein Desktop system a few months back.

I've noticed that the recommended Enermax fan has two fans -- one on the inside blowing air around inside, and the other on outside by the power switch.

I've also noticed that while the inside one spins, the outside one doesn't.

I've gone into the BIOS and monitored temperatures and I think they're OK...

My question is for other people with AllenStein DAWs with the option Enermax fan: When you look at the power supply, is that little fan spinning?

Or is it designed to kick in only when it gets super hot? Or what??

Help/Tips much appreciated.

Tom.

There should be a fan speed knob to adjust the speed of the rear fan.

not on the power supply i have...

... i think Allen has updated the model of power supply he recommends since I built mine.

i've tried contacting enermax to no avail...

anyone else with an older Allen Stein DAW with a power supply with no speed control? is that outside fan always spinning, or only when things get hot??
