You just missed out; there was one being given away in the Marketplace right here.

the MS750 case is very different than the MS350 case. Top off the MS750 will not fit the MS350. The top of the MS300 is more of an U shape that covers the sides. The top of the MS750 is a flat plate. The MS750 is about 2 5/8 longer than the MS300.

That is most helpful. I will look at getting mine precision drilled over the hard drive area as the fan is not pulling much are from there at all.

Default Fan

Anyone know how to rewire the fan so that it is always running? Not sure of exact connection location and change.

Steve,

You can run the fan continuously if you steal power from the hard drive connector, but you’ll need to make a decision. If you connect the fan to the 12VDC pin, it’ll run at full RPM and depending on the fan used, it may be too loud for your listening room (there are literally hundreds of fans with various voltages, RPM, noise level and CFM ratings). If you connect it to the 5VDC pin, it will run at a low RPM and reduced air flow.

I wired the fan on my MS300 to the hard drive connector to make it run all the time. If I recall correctly, I used the 5VDC pin.

I’d try both 12V and 5V to determine which will work out better for you.


Mike

Thanks, Mike. This is the same fan as others are using and what you offered me. Doubt it will be too loud as I already heve an HTPC with 3 fans in it running all the time on shelf above the MS. We are having boot issues, now with two different drives (one the original known to be good) so we have to sort that hiccup out. PS rebuild and second MB, so I suspect a connection somewhere.

Am I right that to reliably boot up, even with a good and Mc software-loaded hard drive, often it will not boot unless the Ethernet cable if hooked up to the network?
