Thats interesting I just finished reading that you have to change the voltage on the firmware to 12v in order for the 12v heater to work properly and not risk damaging the printer. Is that why you have all the fans?
I just received the hot end today but realized its for a 12v printer and was concerned about installing it so I also ordered the 24v parts just to be sure.

Tech support also is getting me a replacement stock hot end so I can at least have that to fall back on since the existing one is dead.

Perhaps you can create a short tutorial with photos to show how you installed the hot end for us less versed in the technical terminology. Thanks.

Hi mrSEADEMON-
Thanks for the great tutorial and tips!
I printed your fan shroud for the stock hot end which looks and works great.
I also printed the dust filter you recommended and a filament guide that mounts to the lever on the print head after having a lot of issues with mounting the other guide that mounts to the front of the gantry. The stock mounting screw was a bit too short so the other guide work out better for me.

I also followed your advice about compressing the springs and that really helped to reduce the vibrations giving the walls of my prints a smoother look.

I am holding off a little bit to install the E3Dv6 hot end until I can get some of the molex connectors to get a cleaner install. I am also a little nervous about updating the firmware to get the fan signal to come on. Thanks again for all your help.
