Great idea!
There's connections on the board marked "fan" that you have to plug the fan into, then turn cooling on in Slic3r and set the minimum fan speed using M106 SXXX where XXX is a number between 0 and 255. Use the lowest number where the fan reliably turns on and divide it by 255 to get your minimum fan speed as a percent. That's it!
This is cool. But as a newb, I have no idea how to use it - I mean on the software/wiring side. Does it stay on all the time, or is there a forum post that goes over the particulars?
