Makes sense. But thxman has a different motherboard with only 2 actuator processors, maybe this is an older motherboard?
Do you maybe have an idea what 'IBGT temp' value is corresponding to Mike? As you can see in the pictures I posted I installed custom cooling parts on the processors and I need to know if this is enough to prevent damaging to the processors. If the IGBT temps are indeed the temperatures of the processors I can ask D-Box what the max temperatures is they can reach without causing damaging/fry them. I then can check if my custom cooling is sufficient enough.
@thxman: I ll post some pictures of the broken hub housings tonight but believe me, they are really not fixable anymore.
EDIT: Just had contact with D-Box and like I espected they do not give any support to the custom cooling I put on the processors. (I don t blame them for not giving support to this). The IGBT temp value in the Advanced settings of the MCI Control Panel is indeed the temperature of the chips that drive the actuators. @thxman, could you check the temperatures in idle just after turning on and most important, after running a two hours (or so) D-Box movie? D-Box told me that the system DOES NOT have a protection to auto-shut the system down when running too hot.
