I am disappointed with the fan mods for the Original Xbox. I tried a 60mm Noctua Fan and then an 80MM Noctua, but no matter what i do. I cannot increase the speed of the fan. The fan just stays at the same speed settings even during gameplay. And was wondering if i can increase the speed of the Noctua since they are better,quieter fans capable of pushing out more air. I tried increasing the speed through the settings and through the config settings. But it still doesn’t make a difference. My Xbox has an Open Xenium modchip with Unleash X. Did i miss something? Do i need a special adapter?

Depending on the bios file your are using.

With the X2-5035.67 and iND5004.67, iND5003.67 patched there is a config file on the HDD you can set the fan speed.

With the EvoxM8+.67 bios you need to use EVTools on a PC to set the fan speed then flash the edited bios file to the modchip.

 

In the Ind-bios.ini file that is on C drive root directory look for 

FANSPEED=10        ;Fan Speed   10-50 = 20-100%                    Default=10

 

In the X2config.ini file that's on E dive root directory look for

; speed of xbox fan, value 10 equals 20%, value 50 equals 100% fanSpeed = 10

 

With EVtools you set the fan speed in the box on the bottom left

A lot of people are finding that the original fan is better at cooling the Xbox over a aftermarket one as long as it's clean.

I set the fan speed to 30% in EVTools and I find that works fine the only time I can here the fan is when I am sitting right next to the Xbox and at a controller cord length I can't here it.

Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.

Thanks, so i edit the config file and flash it. Or do i just edit the config file and restart it? Oh EV Tools i’ll just try that. 

Which method to use depends upon which BIOS you are booting, if:

  • X2 5035 - edit x2config.ini
  • ind-bios 5003 or 5004 - edit ind-bios.cfg
  • Evox M8 or M8+ - use EVTool v1.0.9 to create a new .bin file and reflash the modchip/TSOP with it.
