When immersing the power supply for S17+, do you need to spoof the fans also?
I'm curious to know if the power supply is happy to run without fans. It's a 2 wire fan only. When immersing my first miner, it doesn't seem to boot-up / power on. Is this the result of the Power Supply not having fans?
Thanks so much! Keep up the great work.

The fans on the PSU must be turning for the PSU to operate correctly. Most PSUs except for ones designed specifically for Immersion Cooling require that the fans be rotating. If they are not, then the PSU controller prevents the PSU from delivering current.
In general its not necessary to spoof the PSU fans just let them run in BitCool, they use little energy and the trouble of dismantling the PSU is often not worth the trouble.
