Hi guys! So I have finally gotten on board with the ultimaker 2 coming from 2 ROBO 3D R1 units. My question is how is this thing so quiet? When I turn my robos on I can hear them across the house with the ramps and PSU fan. I know the ultimaker has an external PSU but I don't even hear a fan running to cool the arduino board. Does it have one,or is it just that quiet? Just want to make sure nothing is broken. The only thing I hear is the extruded fan kick on at temp which is still very low.

I must say I was on edge spending so much money on this printer but just playing with it for the few hours I've had it this thing is worth it in every way!

Thanks for the help

    That was a point on the list of improvements on the UM2 over the original - no electronics board fan. However the UMO+ has caught up with UM2 and now that has no fan either.

    Thanks for the reply! This thing is just amazing. I cant believe the print quality out of this machine.
