yeah , fans cut on on heavy gaming. this is to be expected since we are pushing ultrabook power in a tablet form factor. the chip will get hot from intense gaming. so the fans cutting on is a good thing as it cools things down. mines cut on but hardly noticeable. I don't see how some people saying it sounds loud..lol if I focus on it , I can hear the whoosh sound of it. but most of the time I can hardly tell its even on on my pro. Im running the same updated drivers also. no issues as far as I can tell .
but no matter the driver, the pro fans will cut on during intense or long gaming sessions.
Of course the more you game and really push the Pro such that its fans are on all the time, you also lower the lifespan of its components. This is why towers with significant heat dumping systems are best for real gaming.
Ahh true, this is the big difference between the Surface Pro 2 and the Razer Edge Pro, the Edge was made tobe taken apart replacing/upgrading it's components like fans, ssd, wifi card, ram by the user, no warranty stickers. While the sp2 is made tobe replaced, because if I do send the SP2 for a major repair, would you want it back if they heat the screen and peel the glue and then return it to you? Lol I'll be like screen is loose.
I wish the SP2 was upgradable.
