    Well my hot end fan stopped working on me while he of course caused a major clog. I have put in an order for a replacement fan but they are not in Stock. Anyone know a high rpm fan I could get in the meantime to get my printer up and going?

    I tried one off of Amazon. And it wasn't strong enough :(

    There are adapters on thingiverse for larger fans (the small one is 30mm) like 40mm or 45mm.
    I don't know of a specific model I could suggest. Perhaps search and see if Noctua or any of the other high quality fans are in that size? Only one I found was 40mmx40mm as well.

    Maybe one like this?

    I have not used that specific one, the ones on my other Robo R1+ style printers are E3Ds and the hexagon ones on the C2 are built into the base plate where the hotend mounts and they are like 50mm.
