    If the cooling fan it's always on, the first think that dies it's the transistor


    It's isn't really easy to change, but I learned the hard way with a friend to do it and I have change it 3 times (crossing fingers).

    Read the post and also check my other post, at the end you will see photos of the transistor took off and the new installed. It's a very cheap part and if you don't know how to do it the first time I payed 30-40€ to a guy to do it for me (cheaper than a new board).


    Also, you could change the cooling fan connection to the led pwm, it has the same circuit, but to use it you need to rebuild the firmware and change the pins.h of the board.
