I installed the NMB Fans last night in my 1030Q1 and I am very impressed. A whole new experience watching movies without the distracting fan noise.

How difficult was it to install those fans?

You need to remove the original fans, right? Will the NMB fans fit in the slots of those old fans?

Thanks

Piece of cake installing these fans. Yes, you have to remove the old fans. Just go to the eboystoyz website and follow Larry's instructions. These fans come with a three-wire harness; just use the red/black wires and wire them into the red/blue wires of the 1031Q. I also took out the metal tube spacers used in the stock fan. They would likely rattle in the new NMB fans (which are slightly taller). The fans fit perfectly length/width-wise. No problems. My wife still can't believe how quiet the projector is.

Anyone have a URL to a source that has the best price on there fans? How do they compare to the best that Papst has to offer? The Papst fans are just so damn expensive!

Here's the Papst fan...

http://www.directron.com/papst8cm.html


19.4CFM to the NMB's 18CFM


and


12dBA to the NMB's 18dBA


More airflow and less noise.

Oh yeah, and $15 to NMB's $2.50 :D


Anyone know the specs on the standard issue fans? I thought they are 26 or 28dBA. I have no clue what the airflow is. :confused:

I purchased the fans from the SVC link above. Ordered on a wednesday and received on saturday. Very quick. For $2.50 each, I believe that it is a no brainer decision. Pretty quiet for the money. Easy to install. Has someone actually compared the Papst vs the NMB side by side?

Good. I think I'll be replacing fans soon. I'd be interested in knowing how the Papst fans compare with the NMB fans in practice. Both sound like giant leaps over the standard fans. Literally.

I just replaced the fans in my 1030Q1 with the NMB fans - wow!!! What a difference! The new fans are so quiet! I cannot believe the difference!!! Thanks for alerting me to this mod. I also took out the on-board speakers so that more air can circulate.

okay i,m sold, the fans in my 1031q are akin to a f-18 hornet positioning for takeoff on a carrier someplace, extremely distracting to say the least so we,ll give it shot and see what happens...............

Be careful when removing the old original fans. When you unscrew the screws holding the old fan onto the metal bracket, there are copper-colored metal tube spacers within which the screws fit. These could fall out and cause shorts inside the projector. So, hold them with your fingers as you unscrew the screws. You will not need them when you put the new fans on. See the post by danieljoelle above.


You will not believe the difference it makes! The projector is really quiet!

Anyone like to hazard a guess if these will work in an NEC XG? Havn't found a source in the UK yet, but must be available as NMB have an office in the UK.
