Silent 3D printer - Change the side fan of Wanhao i3 Plus printers

The stock fan on Wanhao i3 Plus printers is very noisy. In this video, I show how to install a Noctua silent fan and convert the 24v of the printer to the 12v necessary for the fan.

Note: This video was, during 1 week, exclusive to supporters of ADVi3++ on Patreon.



As your airflow can be different (i.e. less) than your previous one, be sure to check if your extruder motor is not heating up too much. Some people are feeding a little more power to the Noctua fan by adjusting the potentiometer to 14V.

This Mod is at your own risk.

i’ve orderd my parts thank you for this! Keep safe in these times!
