    Terry,

    Have you got rid of all the JST-XH pigtails? If not, can I send you a SASE for one? If you don't have any left, where did you order it? I ordered a JST-XH pack of 5 on Amazon but the male connector is too wide for the circuit board socket. Thanks for any guidance.

    Regards,
    Bill

    Terry,

    Any pigtails still on hand? I can send a SASE if you have one? If not, what is the part number and vendor for the unit you bought? I ordered a 5 pack of JST-XH on Amazon but the male connector is too big to fit the receptacle on the board. Thanks for any guidance.

    73,

    does the Noctua fan match the factory CFM? Ive looked into modding my 5100 with a quieter fan but the the only fans that fit flow much less air, maybe less rpm to make it more quiet?

    It's a quieter fan ONLY because it shifts less air, has lower back pressure, a lower RPM and lower powered motor.

    Having said all that, it does appear to be adequate but there is nothing magic about its design as the manufacturer would have you believe.

    Connect a 47 Ohm resister in series with the (+) cable of ic7300 fan and you will have a similar to Noctua "silent" fan without the cost and weird color.

    I wouldn't do that though. Icom chose the fan specs for a reason; airflow and back pressure!
