Completely lost with Noctua fan mod

Post#1 » Fri Oct 18, 2019 1:27 pm

Hello,

I would like to install a Noctua Fan mod on my Dreamcast. I bought the console with no modifications and the only mod I installed so far is just the battery one. My Dreamcast is PAL version 1.

As I said I'm lost because on ebay Europe right now, there are only 2 sellers who sell the Noctua Fan mod kit (https://www.ebay.fr/itm/Dreamcast-Noctu ... Swa8NdbVxX) other seller: (https://www.ebay.fr/itm/Dreamcast-Noctu ... Sw3upddRfE). And both said that I may cut a small part from GD-ROM because it might won't fit. And I do not want to cut anything.

So I'm looking on internet for hours and saw some people who didn't have cut anything to put the mod as this screen : https://www.wkd4496.net/wp-content/uplo ... 50x345.jpg or https://pbs.twimg.com/media/D_uIFMoXsAATaBL.jpg

Actually I don't want to throw 20€ for nothing because both sellers don't accept return items.

Anyone have already ordrered from them ? It fits without cutting ? My dreamcast https://i.imgur.com/rKQX3hH.jpg

Thank.

I didn't have to cut anything on mine. But I do not recall who I ordered it from. I just figured that most are using the same plans for their 3d printer so they would all be the same. But I could be wrong.

I received my Noctua Fan mount ordered from Laser Bear itself. And yes I had to cut off a bit the optical block :

The fan is now mounted and works:

But opening the dick lid is harder than before.
