Heatsink fan stays on 24/7 (Not an issue but a... request?) :D

Recommended Posts

This is unfortunately not possible on the older UM2, a possible cure is to change the fan to a Sunon that is very quite.

The newer UM2s come with a new board that has the ability to control the fan and turn it off when the temp is lower than 40°c (with firmware 15.04), so the only way i know would be to buy that new board but it's quite expensive for just that purpose...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
