The Volcano 9 CoolMod is not much different than the
regular Volcano 9. The only difference is the replacement of
the metal TT fan grill with a TT 4 LED clear grill.
There is one LED on one side of the
grill. Two of them directly across from each other are powered
by the HD LED (Red) leads from the motherboard, while the other two
are powered on by the Power LED (Blue).

Another difference is the change from a
dial potentiometer t to a knob rheostat version. The previous round circle
version was a bit hard to turn compared to this knob style.
All other features and specs are identical, including the same heatsink.
Here is the unit in action:
One thing I noticed is that the
temperature probe was wrapped in plastic, a little too much of it.
So with a scissor, some portions of it had to be removed to get a
more accurate reading.
The Volcano 9 CoolMod I received had a
slight problem. It seemed the actual fan within the fan casing
was off center causing it to rub severely against the edge.
This is probably a fluke thing as my other Smart & Silent fans did
not have this problem.
