Re: [APD] Re: Vortex HELP! -- or - Don't get hot -- get another
Who wait, what? Fan? This thing isn't using a FAN! There definately isn't
any air running around the thing! Hmm...I wonder if theres anything I can
do to check on the fan...possibly it's jammed? Is it under the large cap at
the top of the motor, cause I don't think the thing is spinning at all, it
just sounds like the motor is running, and no air is moving around the
heatsink at the top. Good info, I hope ;-)
