I recently bought a BBQ Guru CyberQ with a pit viper fan. I initially brought the BB32 up to target 225 with its own dampers, then closed the lower KK damper. I set the Guru to 225 and closed its damper about a third, and set my upper KK damper where I normally do for a low n slow cook. The temperature dropped initially as expected but was taking a long time to recover so I opened the Guru damper and opened the top damper a little more. The cooker ended up running about 250. I was cooking two packer cut briskets for a church related gathering and they were done much earlier than anticipated because of the increased temp.   I would appreciate any advice on how users manage their Guru and KK dampers.   I think I just got antsy  (and wanted to go to bed) but should have left the damper settings where I initially put them. Thanks.

I don't use mine very often, but when I do I'm looking for the temp to be stable and the fan active, but not running at 100%. The damper is adjusted accordingly.

I just used mine yesterday on a rib cook. Target was 250F, so the top vent was just barely off the seat. Wind was calm when I started out, but picked up later (storm on it's way) and the temp drifted up to 260F. I wasn't too concerned, but tweaked the top vent down a tad and she came back down within a few minutes. I always close the fan damper to at least 50%, just for this reason. Make the fan do all the work.
