    So a few years ago I bought a premodded xbox with a 200GB harddrive and fan upgrade. I have recently started playing it again and have noticed that the fan is really loud and really annoying.

    I was wondering if it could still work if I just unplugged the fan? Does it really need it? How fast would it overheat? I felt like playing Fatal Frame, but the fan is too load to hear any of the quite noises on that game. I figured someone here would know about this kind of thing.

    It definitely needs it. It's like an 80 mm PC fan, right? You can probably find something quieter, but I don't know how much air it needs to move.
  3. Yeah, it needs it. I was modding mine a few years back and forgot to plug the fan back in and I think in like a minute it started showing symptoms of overheating.
