    Are you worried about your CPU or GPU overheating while your Wii is in standby? This can be caused by WiiConnect24 being turned on, causing the Wii to continue operating while it is turned off.

    Here is a simple solution to cool down your Wii in standby. This mod will keep the fan on at all times, when the Wii is on or off, provided WiiConnect24 is enabled. If WiiConnect24 is disabled, then the fan will stay off when in standby, because it is not needed.

    To turn your fan on in standby, simply solder a wire from TP49 to 5V. Both of these points are located on the bottom side of the motherboard. It is recommended to not use too thin of wire (26awg would be good). This mod is perfectly safe to do and because the fan is so silent, you will not even notice it.
