Cloudshell2 Stock FAN Specifications? is it replacable?

Unread postby SimonHayter » Fri Apr 13, 2018 6:21 am

Hey everyone!

Today I became a first-time owner of a Hardkernel device, woohoo! I received the XU4 Passive, Cloudshell2, eMMC Ubuntu this morning. I plan to setup the kit fully on the weekend when I have free time but until then I want to make sure I got everything I need. Upon opening the box my eyes fixated on the stock fan, looking at both the front and back of the fan there is no model, voltage or amps listed, almost like someone has taken the 'sticker' off! grrr!

Does anyone know the specifications of this fan? e.g:

Size: ?? viewing several threads I hear people have replaced them using 90mm fans but measuring the fan its actually 92mm?
Voltage: ?? I'm assuming its 12v?

I think I will replace the fan with a Noctua or something low RPM to keep the noise down, I know that you can use a script but I'd rather keep things software simple! will any 3pin fan 12v at 92mm or 90m do?

You can find the cooling fan specification. ... ifications

There was no serious complaint about the cooling fan noise in CloudShell2 so far.
Please try the stock fan first before buying an expensive Noctua fan.

As far as I remember, only one user changed the fan only for a cosmetic purpose. ... pressions/

I have successfully replaced the fan with a Noctua fan because I am quite sensitive to fan noise.

I used this fan:

For me the difference in noise is significant but I am not a reference human being :)) - should that be a thing. As per odroid's instructions you should wait before installing the system and see if the noise bothers you.
The HDDs make more noise than this fan(I use a WD Red 4TB and a WD Green 2TB).
