Im picking up a mint mountain dew xbox with box and paperwork. It looks perfect no scratches. Im wondering what the opinions are on opening it up to change at least the clock cap. Possibly replacing all of them. I hate to remove the labels on the bottom to get to the screws. Is there a way to do it without damaging them? The console has never been opened and from what I understand rarely played.
My main gaming system is a green Halo xbox I bought maybe a year ago off ebay - it was in great condition and had never been opened before I got it. When I removed the case to clean it out I found the motherboard is a 1.4 revision with a gold clock capacitor. I remember reading online this is a high quality capacitor Microsoft switched to after they realized the cheap ones were failing. Does anyone here have any more information on this? Pics attached I took today.
