just to share with you my first little project done with my new Original:
I’ve made a standard controller case modification so that I was able to swap the standard 30mm fan with a super silent Noctua NF-A4X10 FLX 40mm fan.
To step down the 24V to 12V I used a cheap DC DC configurable step down board.
Here some pics:
Hello @Bullone, That looks like a great mod. Would you be willing to post the model, Parts List and the dimensions used to cut the original housing? It looks like you may have followed the molding marks but can’t quite tell.
After couple of days running this new configuration I can confirm that’s huge improvement! The controller now is completely silent thanks to the fantastic job done by the Noctua fan.
Obviously the 3D module is still make loud noise because of the 2 30mm fans but don’t know if we can think to upgrade them: I suppose at least the one that if pushing air on the nozzle is better to keep as is.
What do you think?
I had changed the filament fan on the right side to a bigger one and the “print-cooling fan”- rather the Stepper-cooler partially unplugged.- This works better for me.
For print cooling i used a RJ45 Splitter and picked up the 24V for a Part-Cooler.
