The fan obstructs passive heat dissipation, just another obstacle. Removed it, 4 screws. If you think you need or want it later, put it in a drawer instead of the trash or recycle bin.

Also just another plastic item to absorb heat, rather than the metal case (which absorbs, then dissipates).

Yeah I reckon I'll just remove it and leave it in the drawer as you suggested. Thanks for all the help you've given me!

I removed the fan, and it's working just fine so far. I'll provide an update once I figure out what exactly the inputs and outputs are for my model (mine says "Datavideo DVK-100 Rev. G" on the board if that helps anyone.) I'll also give an update if anything goes wrong, but I don't think that's very likely.

Alright, finally got round to testing the outputs on my DVK. IF you've got a DVK that says "Datavideo DVK-100 Rev. G" on its motherboard, then you'll want your cables going out from OUTPUT instead of CAM 1 OUT. Something that's useful to know is that the outputs which bypass the TBC also bypass the proc-amp, meaning you can just crank the brightness up to max, and see which output has a washed out image.
