Hello, I've purchased a used xbox from eBay and its a V1.0. The noise made by the gpu fan unbearable. I would like to replace it with a passive heatsink from a later revision xbox. I've looked around quite a bit but can't find it for sale anywhere. Does anyone have a source for one or some sort of alternative? Thanks

You could purchase a larger gpu heatsink and drill screw mounts into. You'd obviously need to get some new thermal paste for that though. You might be able to take the fan apart and fix it or buy a similar size fan. Those are just some ideas though.
