Hey,

I currently have old Xbox 360, and i'm tired of fixing it.
So i've decided to buy the most basic pack -> Arcade.

My friend currently at Toys R Us and he saw lot 801EC but 203W.
i need some help to be sure i'll have Falcon :
1. What's the EC means ?
2. the lot i mentioned above, Falcon you think ?
3. What i need to search for to be sure i'll have the Falcon ?
* I'm not in the US so i must be sure before he leave the shop.

After i'll buy :
1. Should i add Fan on the GPU Heatsink ? incase i do, what size is it ?
2. Should i do the X-Clamp fix ? and replace to Arctic 5 ?

Thanks !

Unless its an old stock of 360's it should be a Falcon.

I would do none of those things. The Falcon board run MUCH cooler and such keeps the GPU cooler due to the 65nm CPU. You should never have a 3rrod issue with a new Falcon 360. No need to fix something that is not broke.
