  1. There wasn't actually a 1.5. So do you mean it's a 1.4 or a 1.6?
  2. It WILL screw up the detail on the top. People have already attempted it on these and then had to attempt to repaint it. You'll have to come up with a brilliant way to mask the paint before applying the retrobrite.
  3. I think now is a good time to restate all premises because the conclusions will undoubtedly be drawn with video evidence soon. #1 Replacing the stock paste with better paste will yield no significant results IF the stock paste hasn't already failed. It's very brittle and can crack and fail fairly easily. Thus the reasoning behind changing it out. #2 The differences between thermal pastes are minute. The thermal conductivity of these pastes can be known by their w/Mk rating that should be listed somewhere for a given TIM. Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut has the highest w/Mk of all TIMs known to me. It is what I will be testing with and I do expect a very slight improvement. #3 Liquid metal would result in a huge improvement in theory but cannot be used because the heatsinks are aluminum and gallium creates an alloy with aluminum that destroys its rigidity and thus renders the heatsink useless.
  4. Also, there is no temp sensor in the gpu. That is the MCPX temp.
  5. You claim the temps of 2 different components. You're not attempting to compare them to each other are you? That wouldn't make any sense.
  6. Where is your testing and data to support that it yields no practical benefits? or are you just talking out of your ass?
  7. The Xbox cannot read games in Rar format. They need to be extracted. I don't know about quix. I don't use it.
  8. Not a bright comment on your part. Every analogy will have a difference. That's why it's an analogy rather than the exact same thing. Maybe look up what an analogy is. The argument is that repasting is somehow dangerous and shouldn't be done because the negatives outweigh the positives. They actually do not because repasting is not difficult. It's not risky. Replacing the clock cap is literally removing a component from the board. It's risky and not easy for most. So... it disproves the entire argument you're on.
  9. I do want to point out though, that literally everyone talks about removing the clock cap as good advice. If you disagree I'd like to see your explanation for this. That COMPLETELY nullifies any argument against changing thermal paste. It's not difficult and not as risky as removing a capacitor.
  10. You guys have given me a great topic for another youtube video. THANK YOU!!!
  11. Anything that heats and becomes softer then cools and becomes harder will lose its softness over time. Properties change. Also, the material will have a particular thermal transfer property that won't be very high. It might be slightly better than air but not by a whole lot. Compare that with Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut with over 12w/mk and you'll understand why it's not "pointless" to change out the thermal paste after nearly 20 years. The cooler you can make a cpu and gpu run, the longer lifespan they will have.
  12. More advanced and more efficient than what?
  13. You probably have a bad rip. Re-rip the dvd with dvd2xbox.
  14. There is some other variable you're leaving out. The original Xbox dvd drives are 100% NOT LOCKED to the motherboard. They didn't start doing that with dvd drives until xbox 360. Most of us here have swapped every different type of dvd drive into every different xbox. We know that isn't what is going on. Wipe that from your mind and start looking for other variables.
