My friend just bought a used but really really good condition Wii U on Kijiji. I've never seen one in real life before so I have no clue what it's meant to sound like. Anyway he is worried because he can hear the fan (it's very quiet yet stable), and is wondering if it is normal. The Wii U is on a computer desk maybe an arms length away. What is sketching him out is that the Wii's fan made no audible noise what so ever. It doesn't sound like other wii u fan videos online that people post (like it doesn't sound like it's chugging or chopping ect...). We're going to get a game for it tonight. Apparently the disk drive is louder than the fan. But basically, we're just wondering if the Wii U's fan is mildly audible/can you hear your wii u's fan at all.
