    it must admit - it took a while... :) as far as i understand you use the expansion board and right now you are making the cables yourself, right?

    Be careful with the model cooling fans - these are connected in series (two 12V fans powered by the 24V line).

    The small 5V fans are using JST connectors, the 12V fans are connected with Molex plugs (AFAIK).

    The exact types of the connectors are mentioned in the build manual (search for "Making the y-cables"). With the identifiers from there you should be able to find the correct plugs.

Thanks for you input 8m intsalling you firmware later today/tomorrow.
