Would you know if only MoOde is installed. Would the fan be in auto mode or would it be on all the time. With only MoOde, I do not know how to execute the one-line code to get it into auto mode. 

Thanks.

Shame the SD slot gets hidden with the M2 base, makes hotswapping that bit harder.

I don't think the fan has ever turned on with the Argon orginal I have running moOde.

For MoOde.. to activate the fan operations... (I'm assuming you know your way around ssh, nano, and the Linux terminal. ?)

Code:
git clone https://github.com/Howchoo/pi-fan-controller.git
sudo apt install python3-pip
sudo pip3 install -r pi-fan-controller/requirements.txt
./pi-fan-controller/script/install
Then to edit the fan settings..

Code:
cd /usr/local/bin/
sudo nano fancontrol.py

and edit for your requirements.
To restart the fan..

Code:
sudo /etc/init.d/fancontrol.sh start
At any time to measure temperatures..

Code:
vcgencmd measure_temp


My experience is the same as @grumbleweed.   The fan has never switched on while running MoOde. The passive case cooling is more than enough.

I agree, I never connected the fan at all. Right now with chillier winter time ambient temps in NY, I have a 4B board running absolutely cool to the touch in the original Argon One case.
