You can see the right side fins shaved off in the picture above.

does that make the xbox hooter, i was just wondering if that would be bad on lims b/c you want all the airflow that you can get, so will it make it hooter??

It shouldn't. The side vent holes remain the same size at all times.

im sorry, but what? hooter? no matter how hard you try i dont think you'll ever be able to turn your xbox into that bar with the well endowed waitresses that pretend they like you for tips. that would be a pretty sick mod though......
