Same shit as the "tl-smoother", they fix a specific problem with DRV8825 drivers. On printers with A4988 drivers they do jack shit.

Ok, I'm probably looking at the one you found, then. In the Q&A section it mentions the possibility of flashing the firmware to deal with different thermistor values. You have to do any of that?

IYou flashed to marlin already?
I have not, but I fucked around with it enough with my shitty delta that I'm familiar with the program. Any benefits to it prior to doing this?

You have any pictures of how you mounted your extruder? Looking at mine it looks like there are two threaded portions at the top and I don't see that on the E3D stuff. Will printed stuff work?

Not at home at the moment, but I used the bullseye extruder mount.

This is a long, confusing read, so just find your combo in the spreadsheet and print what's in the column. I use the stock fans and E3D hot end, so I'm the second column in that long bastard.

The primary benefit to flashing marlin to the (otherwise stock) Ender 3 is getting thermal runaway control, in the limited cases where you can actually shut the hot end or bed down. I also added the BLTouch probe, because carefully tweaking bed levels between prints is for the fuckin' birds.
