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

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.

      Hello Everyone. 
      I am kind of new/kind of old to the scene, as I have an rev 1.6 Xbox that I bought brand new in 2006, softmodded and installed a 160gb harddrive, which is(was?) limited to 137Gb useable space, copied all my bought games to it, threw in a couple emulators, and then just used it on and off and basically forgot anything involved in the process to the mists of time. 
      Recently it wouldn't power on, so I replaced the common 5 3300uF caps that were leaking, and it was good to go. My brain noted that the 16 year old IDE hard drive will not run forever, and I should look at upgrading to a SATA configuration.
      Due to the time gap, very old versions of software, I have now read so much conflicting information at this point am not sure what to do in 2021.
      I  no longer have the original drive. I don't appear to have an image of either drive (8gb or 160gb) in any of my backups either. My fuzzy memory says this is bad because of linked keys. 
      I do not have a PATA usb adaptor, or computer with PATA. I have an Xbox to USB adaptor, but I don't think I have a compatible thumb drive. Based on my research I've ordered the "correct" Startech SATA/PATA adaptor. The existing drive already has an 80 pin cable. 
      I do have ftp access without issue. 
      I'm attaching a 2 screenshots of my drive/system info, my questions are:
      Is that key in the screenshot all I need? If not what is the best way to go about backing up the drive/board key "Just in case" things go bad.
      And is Chimp (https://www.reddit.com/r/originalxbox/wiki/chimp/)  still the best way to clone it to a new drive in 2021? 
      I undoubtedly will have more questions, but backing up is my first priority, and once I have a confirmed backup I will be much more comfortable playing with it, and hopefully updating the various software I have loaded.  
      Any "critical hints" or gotchas would be appreciated as well.

      hey, im a bit of a newb when it comes to og xbox, but i just bought one for the first time off of ebay. it works great, but i know its a big deal to remove the clock capacitor. it looks like it may have been opened before but i dont have a torx screwdriver to open it up to check. im going to my uncle's on saturday so he can open it up and see. is it fine if i play it with the possibility the clock cap hasnt been removed? it works great in every other regard.

      I have this 1.4 Xbox that I've been tinkering with trying to being it back to life.  I have plenty of other MBs so this has been more of a journey project more than the need to have a working board.
      The board initially would flash red.
      I took out the eeprom and it wouldn't read stable.  I replaced it with a new chip and flashed it with a few different images finally settling on an image of another 1.4 that works.
      It now boots to a black image with a solid green light no fraging.
      So I ripped out the tsop and it also is awful, it has a few hundred unstable bits.  So I decided to just install a modchip.  Installed an openxenium and was able to boot into xeniumos!  There was horrible diagonal lines that looked like interferance that would progressively get worse until there was major graphical glitches.  I saw power issues could cause problems so I replaced the power caps below the CPU.  Problem persisted.  Replaced the powersupply, everything looks clean. 
      Flashed M8+ onto the Modchip go to load it and the screen goes blank.  
      Any ideas for things to try would be appreciated.
       
      Thank you
