Buddyboard Fan

Hi, 
Has anyone figured out how to mod the buddy board to add a cooling fan to cool the buddy board? 

I'm thinking it would be good to add a 40mm 5V fan to the buddy board case to help cool the parts for very long prints, but i'm not sure if its best to drive such a fan off a 5V on the buddyboard somewhere, or add another 5V reg (probably a Recom potted jobby) and drive it off that.  

Suggestions and recommendations strongly appreciated. 

Cheers

This guy had an idea of how you can mount one.

RE: Buddyboard Fan

I was thinking about the same but then found this official statement :

"The Buddy board is designed and built to sustain considerable heat. It does not need any cooling even if the printer is in an enclosure."
