yea i was planning on replacing the x-clamp after i fixed my first one in a bit of a more simple way. thanks for the info tho. it IS really helpful!
no shiiit thats why you need screws and washers. I have fixed over 100 of these i know what im talking about. you dont need any stupid divider or speed control. If you REALLY want it to work for good just go spend 15 bucks on a heat gun. But here is the easiest tut and works great. http://www.i-hacked.com/content/view/263/1/
no its not im afraid. if you could read i told him he would need thermal paste and screws and washers(xclamp fix) so either you cant read or have never actually done this. And you DO NOT want a divider that will cause uneven heat on cpu/gpu and your stock fan will work just fine once you have your heat sinks working correctly(xclamp fix) it wouldnt let me post my link for some reason so here is the parts list

You can find them in drawers H9, H2, P3
*this may not be the case for every store*
and obviosly yuo will need arctic silver. Some people will tell you you need a t8 and t10 torx but i found t9 will work for all screws you need to remove and the small flathead i use to take apart the xbox instead of the stupid tool they try to sell you. if you cant find one small enough you can even cut a small strip of plastic off of a cdr case top(sounds ghetto but works) and like i said pm me if you need any advice
I use a precision flat head screwdriver for the rear and sides, and I have yet to break a single clip or tear up the plastic. I use the washers and screws listed above (they were also in the tutorial I linked), and it works great. Just need to make sure you tighten the heat sinks evenly. I had a moron friend that tried this and thought he'd get it tighter if he cranked down one corner all the way then do the same to the opposite corner; he cracked his GPU, lol.
lol. alright. thanks alot blazie. will be trying this shortly
