Funny note about that. One of my fans on my N1 died about a month after i got it. I figured some dust or filament hair got inside and burned it out. No big deal, I stole the fan from the right extruder i never use and was back in biz. I then ordered 2 spare fans.
Today something weird happened, I had a short of sorts, looks like it burnt out the right heating cartridge. I get an error I'll post tomorrow But, I decided to put the right fan on JUST IN CASE I ever have a need to use that side once i replace the heater cartridge. First fan, Brand new from R3D, was so noisy, i almost cried. Put a drop of 3-in-1 in the center after peeling back the label. same problem. I toss it in the trash and put the 2nd fan on that was also new from R3D and it's whisper quiet.
I had ordered some Noctura 40x40 fans, but apparently they are not the same size as the 40x40 fans that R3D uses. Oh well.
