12v Fan Mod (360 Slim): Need Information.
Posted 11 October 2012 - 11:26 PM
Anyone know of a good How-To article telling how to do a proper 12v fan mod in this system? Like I used to do on the original 360 consoles, I will be soldering to a 12v source, then adding an inline resistor to keep it at a speed that I like.
Any help would be wonderful. Thank you in advance for any help you may be able to provide!

I have noticed that my slim runs hotter than the old falcon I had but no issues, so don't think the 12v mod is necessary on the slims.

Slims in my opinion are turning out like the xenon boards...Trinity models anyway..
I have an achi ir-6000, and locally I have repaired 23 slims this year and have bought 9 red dot slims myself.
3 of them I couldn't get back going as they probably needed a reball and i just don't have the stencil to reball that chip..
Trinity models suck period, rgh your units and dump them while you can...Grab a corona and pray they turn out to be better models. Or for a safe bet, grab a Jasper and never worry again

Fan speed mods are a must for all version 360's and PS3's if you want them to last more than a few years.

My experience, I have a stock 60gb PS3 first release and it runs cool even after a 10hr. marathon of Resistance. I have never had an issue. Luck maybe?

I only have an RGH Trinity which I can set the temps in autogg but any console with ofw where I can't even monitor the temps, there's no way I could go without modding the fans. Especially with Microsoft and Sony's track record. All they care about is the thing outlasting any warranty. Cross my fingers and hope it lasts, or do something that will guarantee it will last decades... no brainer.
