    Why does it even need a fan if it’s running the ATOM processor? Is it to support a HDD or is it for the graphics chip?

    Yeah, not sure why. With it being such a small device it’s possible it’s just all the tiny components compacted into such a small space. Here is a possible alternative as well. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16856502002
