The main purpose of the fan is to cool the heatsink, and the heatsink is pretty much directly attached to the CPU, and the CPU is the most important component that you would want to keep cool. Hope that helps a bit.
Did you see those red and blue arrows ? That's science
I will try to take a picture of my screen today but it's not popped out like yours so I don't know if the picture will be representative enough.
I can see that the screen is not fitting the frame 100%, and when I press the area, I can definitely the screen moving a little bit.
I would like to know if someone else has the same "problem" (in my case it's not a problem... yet) or if this little tiny movement is "normal" (@Daniel Kim in your case it's definitely not normal).
@Daniel Kim I was looking closely at your picture, and comparing it to what I can see on my SP3. And then, a light bulb went off in my head (it happens once every 10 years though). It seems that it's not your screen that is popping out of the frame. It looks like the polycarbonate part of the chassis is a little bit bent towards the back of your SP3.
The black line the side of your screen makes seems pretty much straight, doesn't it ?
My surface pro 3 has its screen popped out of its chassis
This is at the upper right corner of the surface tablet, and I'm wondering what could have caused this. Could it be the fan's doing?
Does anybody else have this happened?
I don't feel too happy about this at all; in fact, I could even slightly read a part of what seems to be a label (that reads: "[XXXXXXX XXX] ANTENNA [XXXXX]") of the inside through the crack.
Should I even worry about this? View attachment 4278View attachment 4279
