    Do a few runs without the fan then check the temps. If its over 160 then i would say you need the fan.
    I reject your reality, and blow it up with C4.

    If you replace the fan you won't have to worry about it over heating.

    A Castle product specialist just told me it would be fine with no fan, the only reason they did the fan is because its a selling point to lots of people. It really isn't necessary.

    I figured. I read somewhere that, while they don't recommend it, Castle stated the the mamba max pro and mamba monster are able to withstand operating temps of near 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Ive goten mine up to 190 a few times and never had any problems.
