Fan installation in RB1100AHx4

Mon Oct 30, 2017 3:21 pm

Hello,

I just got an RB1100AHx4 (NOT the Dude edition) and I see there are fan grilles in the case and a 2-pin header. Since I will be running the router overclocked and on a mountain, I wonder if I can install a 3-pin 5V 4x4x2cm fan in the case. I am thinking about this one: http://noctua.at/en/nf-a4x20-pwm

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

PCB do not have any FAN controller, but you can add FAN to 5V and GND, then he will always be ON. I have not done it by myself, but it should work.

RB1100AHx4 uses slightly less power than RB1100AHx2, has a heatsink and a broad temperature range. I would solve this external. So mayby you omit the housing of the RB1100 or add some holes to it and put it into a a big ventilated box.
