    460 AE2 Making a lot of noise.

    Our 460 AE2, sometimes makes noise, like when exporting a live set.
    Today, I'm importing a video clip, granted it's long, but the Tricaster sounds like it's Taking Off!
    I had someone from way down the hall come and ask me what was making so much noise.

    This can't be normal.

    When doing exporting or transcoding, that can max out the processor and so the BIOS is set up to increase cooling when that happens, meaning the fans all crank to max. This is normal behavior. During LIVE production, this should not happen. Even the Mini does the same thing, gets loud when worked hard, any computer will do this

    Thanks

    What is the environment like - is it hot in the room with TriCaster? Good ventilation, air flow around 460 not tucked in a rack box or other tight spot?
