Less noisy Controller Fan

After getting annoyed by the loud Controllerfan, i decided to use a leftover Fan of my Computerbuild. A 80mm “be quiet” fan. After getting one side off by 2mm and reprinting the Top shell, and breaking off a part by accident, this is the outcome.


The normal 30mm (or so) Fan is run on 24V the PC Fans are usually 12V, so i had to add a Buck-boost coverter

works like a charm now. The Printhead coolgin fans are now the most noise the Printer makes in Idle. Didnt run a print yet, hopefully the Drivers wotn toast themselfs.
Got two short videos to compare sound but wont uplaod them exept requested.

Nice work!

Also, I didn’t even know that had a fan…

If this were a SN2 you would be right, the SN1 (original) does have a Fan and its drivers in the controller. Might have a look into your external module cooling for both of my printers. Looks good on the pictures
