  • The Xbox 360 S has a Phillips & Lite-on DVD drive. It is easily removed by disconnecting the two cables that connect it to the main circuit board.

  • The large cooling fan is surrounded by a plastic cowling that likely helps to direct airflow across the heatsink and helps reduce noise. You can remove the cowling by gently lifting up on it and sliding it past the fan's outer ring.
