hello, in over two years I use the purse i3, I never have the need to use a fan for the RAMP board and the Mega board, so I never pay much attention to it. Now that I am re-wiring from scratch, for completeness sack, I hooked a 12 V fan directly blows at the boards. When I turned the printer on, the fan doesn't do anything. I am wondering under what condition the fan will come on, when the boards get too hot? If that's the case, where can I set the threshold in pronterface and do I need to do anything in the marlin? Thanks

Thanks for the replies.It works after printing for about abhor, the D2 fan kicks in!
yes, it is indeed M106. At least on my Marlin.
BTW, the tempture graph on the pronterface, UI there are 3 curves, hotted. bed and fan, what does the fan curve for? is it only for display only, since I don't see any button to set the on and off for the fan. Thanks
