I replaced the main fan on my modded xbox yesterday, but I'm noticing the GPU fan (I have version 1.0) sounds something like a jet engine. I'm thinking of picking up some lithium grease and canned air and trying to clean it up and see if that helps, but I'm curious if anyone has any replacement/upgrade options that have worked for the fan. I saw a video on youtube where someone replaced it with a fan from a mini-itx motherboard, but didn't list the part.

Any experiences or successes anyone can share?

Thanks.

Hello.:)

A little Research:

- Many Users replaced it with an passive Heatsink.
- Many Users used the Iceberq Pro Fan as replacement.
- Also some Users disassembled the Fan and used 10W-30 Motor Oil to get rid of the Noise.

Thank you.:)

Thanks. That third option is what I'm planning to do in the short term, but I'd love to find a long term fix. Thanks for the lead on the Iceberg Pro Fan. It looks like some had success with the Iceberq 4 in terms of fit, but it's hard to find. I'd be curious what passive heatsinks people have had luck with. I've had trouble finding leads on heatsinks from later versions of the xbox (I think this was the only version that used the fan).

  • Veho @ Veho:
    What's the point of "confirming" games you know will get released. Like Nintendo "confirming" a Zelda sequel. "We can't be sure Nintendo is working on a new Zelda game, or if a new Zelda game will ever be released, until they officially confirm it."
  • Veho @ Veho:
    "There is literally no way to know if they will ever release a new Zelda game, it's wild speculation until they officially confirm it."
