Re: Yahboom Fan Hat

Looking at the device specs online, I have two immediate concerns:
#1 the vertical height and fan clearance may give you a dimensional issue,
#2 the fan will not run at all unless activated by the software.
Before going that way, I would want to know that the software that they provide will not interfere with the function of the DRAWS board.
BTW I have 2 DRAWS units.
# 1 is a current release version mounted on a RPi4 and in the NW Digital Radio case. I do need a fan with it. I found a pair on Amazon that fit the case. The CPU temp now runs acceptably cool. I was getting a thermal warning before I installed the fan.
# 2 is an “early experience” unit mounted on an RPi3B and in the “early experience” case. I mounted the other fan on it because I had it… 😊 It runs only Direwolf and XASTIR and tend to run

#1 (on Pi4) looks like this:
Nice unit that performs very well. I run Direwolf, XASTIR, and the “Ham Clock” software simultaneously and drive a 25” HDMI monitor with it. It tends to run about 55C/132F in that configuration with the fan. It was throwing the heat warning without the fan.
