XBox Classic (V1.0) Gpu Heatsink W/O Cooler

Recommended Posts

Recently I got Xbox Classic (v1.0), and it has a little cooler on GPU heatsink (like every 1.0), which I would like to remove. Can I just take the fan off, and leave a heatsink without it? Has anyone tried it, and use the console that way? Also, I'll change a thermal paste with MX-4.

I have done this quite a few times. I remove the heat sink that has the fan, and replace it with a heat sink from later revision Xboxes. Temps are about the same, but now they do not have a noisy fan consuming energy, just waiting to stop working.

I recommend everyone with a v1.0 to replace them.

I would not just remove the fan and use it though, the 1.1 heat sink does not cool enough without the fan.

I have heat sinks if you want one, just pay shipping and its yours.

Yes, I'd like to get rid of that fan. It just make more dust on heat sink (over time) and noise. Somebody told me that he remove the fan from heat sink (on v1.0 Xbox), and the console worked like that for years without any problems Maybe it's possible, but I would not want to risk.

Thanks a lot, I really appreciate it. It would be great if you can give me one heat sink. Where are you from?

Unfortunately, I didn't take heat sink from John7272 because he lives in the U.S., and I'm from Europe, and the shipping costs would be high. If someone else (but from Europe) has heat sink for GPU from Xbox revisions after v1.0, and don't need it anymore, I'd like to get it. Of course, I would pay shipping. Thanks in advance.

      Hi, it's me again with another weird problem
      So, my friend gave me another Xbox with the following issue.
      When I plug in the power cable into the Xbox, the fan speed jump for about 4x highest than the normal (why it is turn on???). When I power up the Xbox, that is goes to normal speed. If I turn it off, than the speed jump to high speed again...
      There is no any corrosion and the capacitors in good condition... 
      The Xbox is in original state. There is no modchip or softmod or TSOP flash.
      Thanks for your help!

      Hi Mates,
      I met the following issue, I try to explain everything... I'm totally lost in space, so I hope, you have some idea what happening...
      So, first, what you have to know:
      - I've got an xbox classic v1.6 without video and sound output.
      - When opened it, I found a MuppetX modchip in it. My friend inform me, he try to flash this modchip, but 1MB always gave an error message "mismatch bios size", so he flashed it with 256KB bios. That was the mistake of him, so the modchip never works again... (The LPC Chip is 49LF020A, like in Aladdin)
      - I flashed it with USB Programmer with many types of bios.bin, tried 256, 512, 1024 evom8+ for v1.6, I tried everything to use it again... But the only working solution was to flash it with 4*256kb = 1MB XBlast OS bios. But when I use XBlast NET bios flasher (cause I can't use any other way, just USB programmer), the flashed bios never works.
      - I checked all capacitors and all of them is in good conditon... I checked traces and all of them in good condition.
      - When I push (more than 5 sec) the power button, the xbox started and loaded the XBlast OS. Without modchip (power up with eject or just push power button) there is no video or sound output. If I change the Bank (I do not know is it bank0 or bank1), the Xbox turn off and turn on again...
      My questions:
      - Is there anyone who has an original dump of a MuppetX bios?
      - Which is the Bank0 and Bank1 on MuppetX?
      - Which BIOS size the correct for that? (As I said, I try 1MB first and all other sizes, but won't work...)
      - Why Xbox doesn't give video and sound output without modchip?
      Is it maybe an EEPROM error?...
      Thank you in advance!
      BR, Zsolt
