Everything seems OK. Can power up via USB-C and 12V DC. Am currently running 12V DC and DisplayPort out of USB-C.

The unit seems pretty warm. HWinfo64 shows 60~64C at idle and the fan only runs a bit right after boot. Any way to set the fan curve? I haven't been able to get into BIOS.

I connected a Crucial MX500 500GB SATA M.2 drive as D: it's working as expected.

No real issues, just the regular W10 stuff to sort out to get that running, but I'd like to see the fan run a little more often.

You can control when the fan starts running in BIOS, lowest is 50C, but that migth do it for you.

How do you access the BIOS? I connected a USB keyboard and tried spamming F2, F8, Del, Esc, none got in the BIOS.

Spam F7 and it'll get you in. I keep the fan set at cool til 50C. Its pretty much always running when I have the alpha on and run moderately intense programs without any hiccups.
