Thats pretty damn dirty. I feel your pain though. I recently had a customer bring me an xbox that would put that to shame. When I took the top off it had enough hair/dust/etc. on the outer sides of the sheilding that would clog a lint filter. I expected the thing to flinch when I brushed the Mobo off lol. I couldn't believe it hadn't overheated yet.

a few of my xbox's that are in the basment ( get used daily and the basment is clean ) seems to have collected dust in side them very simalur to that , maybe hook it up else where if possible otherwise get some air in a can and blow it out.

I installed a modchip in a 1.1 and when i opened the xbox up i got a big suprise, it was so Fu*ing full of dust that u couldnt even see the mobo at some places!!!! thats what i call dusty.. (btw the fan had also a THICK layer of dust and grease, it was barely moving)

i opened one before like that. its not that big a deal. if u wanna clean the fan, just take it out and point a vacuum cleaner on reverse at it. It even makes the noise of a fan going at high speed, which it is.

It seems that 1.1's get the dustiest, which is just weird

All electronics will eventually collect dust if on for a period of time... something I have heard that has helped out with most of my electronics is to rub them with a dryer sheet (like bounce) for some reason it helps... if you have it apart you could rub down the sheilding as well... just a suggestion...

BTW - Dust: small particles of human or animal skin, pollen, mold, or fibers. (http://www.rhinocort.../glossary.asp#d)

kinda grosses ya out huh??? blink.gif
