MV8000 mods with pictures

# SilenX fan was installed years ago but for the record, 2 solder points, heatsink and MV leaves you in peace.

# I received the IDE/SATA adaptor but it was broken, and badly made, bad solder points, crushed capacitors, so had it for free in the end because I managed to repair it.
Had to cut MV's hdd caddy to fit the SSD without force:

# Despite the fact that you can set velocity sensitivity of the pads, I finded the  pads were not sensitive enough. So I dismantle the bottom part to access the pad system:

# Cleaned the pads under water, and dryed them carefully:

# And sliced  to put it in between the  pads and pad sensor:

And...it worked! Pads are super responsive now!  I barely touch them with finger's pulp and it accesses lower velocities.
Highly recommended, if not mandatory mod!!! Thanks to hangnef for the idea.

cool....when i saw that post from hangnef the idea intrigued me too

i think he  said he cut the silicon sheet into pieces to fit under each pad individually.  you put the sheet in one piece into the mv?

Is it tricky to dismantle the bottom part to access the pad system ? I am not that handy and don't want to mess it up :)

Conecthink, click on the last picture and you'll have your answer. ;)

Mvstudio, no it is easy, MV was well tought out, if it is your first time, take your time and don't hesitate to take pictures and write down notes. It' like a lego or meccano for adults. Mostly screws and 4 connectors to unplug.

I must say I'm quite used to open and modify/(trying to) repair gear now, but I had a first time too.  Before opening it, just to be safe unplug power and let capacitors empty themsleves for 10mn, then touch a metal case connected to earth to clear static from your body.

Not sure what the OP used, but I used this (.5mm) and it makes a HUGE difference
