    Hello

    I received my V6 a few days ago with a goal to install it on my Creativity ELF. Problem is am fairly new to modding and upgrading so I had a few questions that I was wondering if people could answer.

    1) Do I need to make any software changes for the installation?
    2) The cables that controls the temperature of the heat block (don't know the official term) are way too long since the board is fairly close to the hot end. Is using the current hot end cable a good idea or shall I work around the length? Also the connection end is different than the current one, Should I attach the adapter to the cables that came with and then connect it?

    I think these are all the questions that rose while working with it? I know some of these are obvious to some but am clueless when it comes to electronics so please be patient :(

    Lastly if someone has in hand a visual guide it will be much appreciated. I am more than happy to share some information/picture if anyone wants to get a better idea
