Did I mention how quiet this unit is with the new electronics.  Basically, from what i can tell, the Cube 2 as is had drivers that were way overdriven (too much amps to motors).  THis created vibrations along the Y axis particularly in my unit and made it incredibly noisy.  With the Frankencube, I was able to quieten the whole setup by dialing down the current to XYZ motors and adding a fan to each of the motors as well as the electronics.  I now have whisper quiet, reliable operation.  The Extruder however has full current applied, but as it moves generally so much slower than the other motors, the noise is minimal, even with high current.
