MG100HDFX Fan removal?

The fan in the head's pretty annoying.

The newer models don't have the fan, so i don't think the HDFX will overheat, but I'm not sure.

Anyone remove the tiny annoying fan in their amp yet?

i wouldnt remove the fan...its there fr a reason the newer models probably have better ventilation or the newer parts dont create as much heat

If you can hear the fan, turn your amp up.

Turn the fan up, it'll probably produce a more pleasant distortion than the MG.

So is it an intake fan? Then that means the MG "sucks", and that's a fact!

Or is it an exhaust fan? Then that means the MG "blows", and that's a fact!
