I re-did the OE heat sink on the chips with AS5 while I was in there. When I take it for a drive I'm going to have a temp probe on the motor case so I can watch the temp. I am using the stock 24V 5A supply to run the fans wide open separate from the circuit board when I use the wheel just for some little bit of cooling. Oh, and the free rotation of the steering wheel feels about identical to the Fanas. The rotation against resistance (at the stops) feels super smooth and strong. How many volts have you pushed to so far RacerXX? I have to say that I lost another stock FFB motor right before I started changing out the motors too. So those were the V2 "new batch" motors that are supposed to be better. I am positive that they were new batch motors too because they had the reversed wire polarity compared to my Elite.
