What i would like to know is how many of you guys actually do this and your method for doing so. I have read that people do this by drawing power from the dvd drive but would this not affect the dvd drives performance? The reason i want to know is i have started buying, fixing and selling xboxes and i got my first return today so i would like to prevent further issues a little longer! What i mean by this is that i normally give a gentleman's guarantee of 14 days to people in my local area and explain how prone the consoles are to failure. They understand this when buying the consoles but i would like my repairs to last a little longer. I currently just stick to the hybrid x clamp fix and the heatgun method with good results and i just want the repair to last past 14 days. IS the 12v fan mod what im looking for and if so what method is suggested?? Thanks Ignore wrong section sorry!!
