How many of you have done it? I guess it's really there just to keep you from sticking your fingers in. So has it improved temps at all?

it will help a little. just for the fact it will increase airflow a bit. the main problem with the xbox is its so cramped inside it doesn't get enough air in the box for the fan to blow out. your better off trying to come up with ways to increase air flow into the box, rather than out.

So should I cut the metal shielding near the mcpx chip? That might help a bit.

Does adding a 40-60mm fan increase how loud the xbox is?

you can cutout that area if you want, or you can take out your mobo and psu and remove all the sheilding as one big peice. then remount everything and you'll have killer ventalation with the case lid on. its perfectly safe and many people on here have done it. just have to be more carefull about things around the sides.

That's pretty sweet, I'm thinking about doing a little design as well, but havn't figured out how I'm going to do it. What did you use to cut/shape that design?
