Have you done Noctua fan mod?

Post#1 » Mon Dec 09, 2019 1:28 pm

I have a gdemu clone, 3d tray, and recently acquired an Akura to replace my Pound cable. Also have a Dream Connection to hook up my saturn controller or saturn arcade stick every once in a while

Noctua + 3d printed materials + power adapter is likely my next mod project with DC... but maybe sometime early next year. hoping some kinda affordable wireless controller comes out too by retro bit or someone


People who have done it , are you overwhelmingly happy with the quietness of the machine?

Absolutely must have upgrade if you have a USB gdrom or gdemu. Makes the machine pretty much silent. Way better airflow too it seems.

Don't forget to swap the thermal pads and unplug the speakers in the VMU to get rid of the beep. All in effort of the Ultimate Dreamcast.

But some games use the speaker. Super Magnetic Neo being one. It beeps when you get close to a secret.

Skies of Arcadia uses it as "radar" to find things as well. Those are the only two I can think of off the top of my head. I'm sure there are others though.

Dynamite Cop uses it as well from what I recall the same way as Super Magnetic Neo. When a hidden collectable picture is near, it beeps.
