Hi, thanks for posting this. I just received my Anycubic Kossel and am finding that I need to do some cooling of the board (it has a heated bed). Can you tell me how you connected this fan - did you use an external fan control or did it connect up the the board? Also how was the momentary switch connected up? Thanks!

If it's still using the same Trigorilla board that mine came with, take a look at this: http://www.xcsource-pic.com/TE627-E-10-9.jpg.

For the fan: You should be able to use the 12v pin and GND above D19 and D18. The fan is on all the time.

For the momentary switch it's a bit trickier. I have a MKS SBASE and I'm not using a LCD (I control it using Octoprint) so I used the RST and a GND pin on the Aux headers (the Trigorilla board has it too!). I wanted to have easy access to a reset button, but if you are already using a LCD with your printer, you probably already have an accessible reset button.

The momentary switch I used has a LED that required a resistor in series and a power source (can't remember if I used 12v or 5v from the board).

Thanks for the detailed reply! I've ordered the parts to add this to my printer which seems to need some extra cooling. I am also considering the MKS SBASE board for my printer but need to read up on it.
