    Hello Johny,
    I put one radiator from computer motherboard over the vu duo processor for a better cooling. It is necessary to mount a fan? Where I can get the necessary voltage? I think 5V it's ok. From power supply is OK? See in the picture.
    Thanks

    Yeah normally it should be enough without the fan, but with one could be better.
    As for the fan supply you could use the 12v or 5v from the hdd power connector but I advice not to use a high amps consumption fan.
    As fan, I prefer to use a temperature controlled fan.

    Can you explain, please? Or maybe a link?
    I have a small cooler from old video card with 2 wire - 5V.

    There are fan's with a build it, or external temp probe.
    But somehow I can't find a picture from it.
    But a 5v cooler from a video card seems to me also good and silence enough.
