    Hey guys i purchased a usb hub on ebay but when i plug it in nothing plugged into it works like the wireless keyboard and mouse or the snes controllers. Anyhelp?

    Also i purchased a small aftermarket fan for the Rasberry pi although it is quite loud. Is there anyway to decrease the speed?

    Thanks again.

    You’ll need a powered hub, the Pi can’t supply enough power through one usb port for all those devices. You don’t really need a fan either, the Pi will never reach high enough temps. But if you want to use one you’ll have to Google how to adjust the speed.

    If you have found the solution to your problem please mark the topic as resolved.

    What about if you overclock will you need a fan then or will heatsinks do fine?
