The Slim E series console has two motherboard possibilities, and it is important to determine which one is in the console you want to modify:
- Corona (just like in the Slim S series all are mod-able)
- Winchester (as of 2018 no current method exists to mod this console) :-(
As with the Slim S series console the MFR date can be a good indicator, but it is not 100% reliable. As a rule of thumb:
- Consoles with a MFR date of 06-2014 and BEFORE are likely to be Corona
- Consoles with a MFR date of 07-2014 and AFTER are likely to be the non-modable Winchester motherboard.
The only way to know for absolutely 100% certain is to open up the console and remove the heatsink and take a look at the XCGPU. In the Corona consoles they stil have an IHS (integrated heat sink) an on the Winchester motherboards they do not.
