Well done a tut anyway incase people do wish to do this (I'd have liked one
This mod is only for the GPU fan!
I done the 12v mod and while this did keep the Xbox cool, it was noisy as hell when trying to watch a film/play a game when the missus is asleep
So decided to do this quick mod to switch between the noisy 12v and 7v (as standard fans run at 5v which I felt wasn't good enough)
So, you will need-
A toggle switch like this one - http://www.positiveoffset.com/Parts/on-off-switch.jpg
You first need to cut the "-" wire from the fan (the black one), but leave enough so you can join it to another piece of wire. In the middle will do nicely.
Now, solder/join a length of wire from the "-" (black) from the fan itself (NOT the fan plug!) to the middle leg of the switch.
Then cut the "+" (red) from the fan, join this to a longer piece of wire and solder it to the 12v point as shown in the picture.
You now need to solder a piece of wire from the left leg of the switch, to the 3.3v point shown in the pic.
Finally you need to join a length of wire from the "-" (Black) from the FAN PLUG and solder to the right leg of the switch.
And that's it! Hope this helps someone!This post has been edited by hevydani: Sep 10 2010, 04:40 PM
