    Creality Ender 3 Silent Mainboard 1.1.5

    Did anybody had problems with this board before?Soon after I change it I got under excursion all the time. Even after calibrating the e-steps. Got a aluminium excruder and did not have problems with it before I change that damn board. On my last print it stop in the middle of printing and my screen just switch of. It dosen't work anymore. Schould I just swich back on the stock board?

    I am pretty sure the mainboard of the day to upgrade your Creality ender 3 to is the SKR 1.3. This mainboard is 32 bit and will let you run the lv8729 drivers at 1/64 or even 1/128 micro stepping. This board costs right around $20 wherever you find it. And it is one of if not the most popular swap solution for your printer. Go find a SKR 1.3, watch this video and enjoy the rest of your life, man: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNGN2iSQ5j4&t=

    Here is a mount for the SKR 1.3 for your ender 3: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3749416

    I just found out that the board is burned!I was hoping that it's just lose connection on the power input as the fan in the power supply works and it's the only working thing. Will swap the mainboard to my old one. I did only 1.5 prints on it...What a peace of crap. Hope it's just a faulty unit. Both prints of it have heavy under excursion + the excruder was making loud noise while retraction. Will message them to send a nother one.

    It's a waste of money. I got the SKR 1.2 and it arrived defective, the stock LCD screen won't work with it and it refuses to update firmware. The manufacturer has been no help of any sort getting it to work and refuses to replace/refund the purchase.

    If you happen to get one that works, people seem to like them, but they come with no documentation or support and I see a ton of problems related to the firmware.

    I'd personally look elsewhere unless you're prepared to deal with the headaches that come from a board that has no documentation and firmware that will likely need to be compiled.

    EDIT: Not to mention that some versions have differing spec that isn't listed on the order page.

    Does it run silently straight away or does it needs some extra gadgets?

    I have a Bigtreetech SKR 1.3 mainboard, LV8729 drivers, and TFT35 v3.0 up and running just fine right here.. This control solution is absolutely amazing and even more so when we take into account what these items are selling for. The LV8729 drivers are meant for the better processing power of the 32 bit controller and can do 1/64 and 1/128 micro stepping. These drivers need to be here to be quiet. But this mainboard will also run TMC2208 drivers which are silent at 1/16 micro stepping. So you can make this solution be quiet with however many steps per mm you like on whatever axis you like. I myself try to shoot for 1,000 steps per mm on each axis. With 8 bit this will slow down the printer drastically. But with 32 bit, not so much. All that precision without the drawbacks. And something else about this new v3.0 bigtreetech tft is that it has it's own 32 bit controller on it. So the screen is its own computer and can do more functions than previous touchscreens. Like you get all these settings for your BLTouch that we never had before.. And I can feed Gcode directly from the touchscreen. Now I don't know if any of you heard that so let me say it one more time, YOU CAN WRITE AND SEND GCODE DIRECTLY FROM THE TOUCHSCREEN! This is huge because it means that i do not have to connect to a pc for anything. Not even for PID autotuning. And that is absolutely huge for a 3.5" screen. And here is a screenshot of that..

    If I get just the board will it work more silent then the stock ender 3 one?
    Planning to keep using the stock screen.

    The board will work with your screen but you will need to get silent drivers. I think you should get these: https://www.amazon.co.uk/FYSETC-Subs...dDbGljaz10cnVl . They are silent at 1/64 micro stepping which is achieved with jumpers on for MS0 and MS2 leaving MS1 open. They are also silent at 1/128 micro stepping which does incredible things for your print quality. This is achieved with all 3 jumpers in place under each driver. OR, there is the latest revision TMC2208 drivers here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/KOOKYE-Prin...xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ== . These drivers will be configured with jumpers in MS0 and MS1 leaving MS2 open under each driver. They will run in stealthchop2 with 1/16 micro stepping. and will be quiet with a lower step count per mm of movement. Once you get the quiet drivers up and going Noctua are the real silent fans you want to start getting.
