mb6582 fan.... Am I mad to unplug it?

6 posts in this topic

Pretty sure my fan is causing a lot of noise. It's especially a bother on the drum engine it seems.
I have (8) 6582 chips, all fitted with heatsinks.

I'm probably going to be OK to unplug the fan aren't I?

I realise no-one can say "yes" for sure, but any reassurance before I do it anyway is gratefully received.....

I unplugged the fan power cable at the same day I got my MB6582 from Wilba, and this never caused a problem ;-)

Best Regards, Thorsten.

Same here! :) Had no fan active right from my start in 2010, the SIDs are holding up very nicely! :)
(Beware, though, If you have 6581, they run a bit hotter and might require better cooling than the 9V 8580s or 6582s).

You could always also install passive heatsinks and drill add a few holes in the case PT-10 bottom for improved airflow - from the MB6582 photo-tutorial:

thanks - I have 6882's, plus both airholes and passive heatsinks, so I suspect I was overdoing it a bit! fan now unplugged.
I think the other issue may be that the resistors I used for the combined output socket are a bit too large - the individual outputs sound much stronger and have a better signal-to-noise ratio.

Is the Fan powered by 12v? Than I would use 5V to be on the save side if it´s summer. The oldskool PC Fan silent mod...
