The whirring sound from the fan isnt too bad... certainly not as bad as the fan noise of my brothers vt60.
Is it normal for my picture presets to reset after exiting the integrator menu? Im aging with dnices sports settings and realize the preset reverted to factory defaults after exiting the integrator menu.
Unfortunately it is normal.
But the good thing about the integrator menu is you can calibrate all your av modes (in) under picture settings - and the integrator saves them permanently until changed again under picture settings in the past integrator menu. And when going back into the usual AV modes when you press (manual) colour and colour management - it automatically puts back what your settings are/were in the integrator menu. It's available for all AV modes - (even) 'Dynamic' mode can be calibrated in there.
In regard to power save mode 2 - i noticed as i'm sure others have is PWM noise is more prominent. Power save mode 1 very slight but on either mode it only noticeable from 3ft and under. Best to leave it on standard where it's sterile looking if fed clean power, calibrated and fabulous material if the material allows even with nose up at screen
Also i have noticed very rarely on PSM2 that the odd misfires can be visible - perhaps (imo) due to an under-driving of perhaps vol sustain. Others have noticed this too in the past on untouched Kuro's also from older reading.
Like you say leaving the fans on won't do any harm. I have just left mine on constantly since i ran the 500M with D-Nice's ageing settings last summer.
Doesn't seem to matter how long the panel is running - it keeps the Y board and X board areas cool to the touch and the plate area above the PSU in the middle luke warm.
Will without doubt keep the major power components going for a long time. I also read recently about the importance of keeping plasma displays running cool as if they overheat (components) it can cause voltage fluctuations of between 2V and 5V - which could be enough to make things go wonky perhaps.
These fans in the Kuros are very effective undoubtedly
