    Is any instructable ever really done? There is always suggestions or improvements than can be made to it, kind of why I mentioned instructions may change as needed in the title.

    The board is labeled for the fan connector, the heater connector is also labeled, there are two locations that can can be used, I used the first location.

    Initially yes I did. It wouldn't communicate at all. There is a MKS_config text file in the software package for the LCD. Set your options in there, smoothieware, baud rate, I chose 115200, etc. save and you should be good.My screen was the MKS v2.0. After I set the correct options it worked well for me.
