Quick iNuke Fan mod question.

To the folks who have done the mod. Do you reinstall the shroud, or leave it out?

Have two NU3000s, I will be using Noctua NF-R8 fans and heat sinks.

Edit 2/16: These fans: https://www.amazon.com/Noctua-NF-R8-.../dp/B002CQTYL6

My NU4-6000s didn't have a shroud. All 3 of them.

Haven't done my NU1ks yet

I keep confusing my intentions with my abilities.

I run mine fanless into a Lil'Wrecker with the SI 15, bridged to 8 ohms, and have to work it pretty hard for a good while to drive it to shutdown.

Quick iNuke Fan mod question.

Can you post a pic of the shroud? No shroud on my 6000dsp.
I'm currently running 1 x Noctua NF-S12A FLX at full speed and one NF-A8 FLX with the low noise adapter.
The 120mm fan is really silent as its mounted externally, and the 80mm fan running at medium speed is silent too.

I reinstalled the shroud I have the non dsp 3000. The shroud is not really attached to anything and even after you replace the fan it goes back in fairly easily.In case your wondering amp has never shutdown due to overheating.

LOL. I didn't realize some of the iNukes came without shrouds. These are also non-dsp 3000s. So I will put them back on after the mods.

Hey home f you haven't purchased the redux fan yet DON'T. Get the original nf-r8. It costs more but there's a reason why. That crappy brown color may be ugly but it's way quieter than the grey redux model. I have 2 inuke nu6000dps 1 with original noctua's other with redux noctua's. The redux are EASILY twice the volume. In fact they were so loud I had to put voltage limiters in-between then and my inuke to make it quieter than my ps4. Save urself some trouble and spend the extra $5

Thanks, actually it appears I mis-spoke. The ones I ordered are these, assumed they were the redux version, guess not?

Acrjoey, did you re-use the iNukes fan mounting hardware or the plastic pins that come with the fan? Heres a pic from that HTS "Behringer iNuke NU1000 Amp Amplifier Fan Swap How To w/ PICS". Looks like if the metal guard is left off, that reduces more noise?

When I did the fan replacement all I did was swap out the fan and reused the existing hardware. It may not make much of a difference only reason I can see for the stock grill to keep things away from the fan. If you really want to go cheap you can go to your local Best Buy and get one of their fans:

I decided to give one a try and as of yet the amp has never over heated as far as noise cannot tell its even on.
Fabricator and jdubs like this.

I left the grill off just like the one in the picture. The noise I'm referring to is the noise from the redux series fans when the rpm is high. They are just noisy well NOISY compared to the normal noctua's. Original brown noctua's like the one in picture are basically silent when in use. The grey redux fans are definitely audible at any speed over 1200 rpm. Now mind you my nu6000dps with the redux fans limited to 1200rpm has never overheated on me but for $5 more I would get original noctua's like I have in my other inuke which are running 1800rpm and produce the same volume. 600rpm make a big difference in airflow cfm.
