I tried taking a photo and it was too hard lol didn't work for me. Also, do you mean 20% of the X360's in retail don't have the fan? because I thought the updated X360's were all updated and shipped together.

I thought there wasn't even a fan on the HS, just the two on the back that blow through passages on the heatsink.

My Xbox 360 has been recieved at the service centre as of yesterday. So, it took around 2 days to get there.

EDIT (FEB 17th)

It says it has been shipped back, so I should get it Monday/Tuesday

I'd be careful. I wouldn't bother modding it. Once I got mine back, it died again.

I should get mine back for the second time next week. I think the power supply was at fault this time though as I believe its probably been spiking, so they should have replaced that.

Good luck anyway

Yea I will wait for a bit but it's still something I plan on doing.
