    Now that my Xbox is out of warrentee, how easy would it be to open it up and try to fix some loud buzzing I am getting, sounds like the fan but is fairly loud when there is no sound. Is it hard to pop the outer case open yet? I haven't even looked. I tried a search here but didn't find anything.

    Jay, check out the X-Box hardware modding forum over at xbox-scene.com. They have a lot of case modders at the site, and many have dealt with quieting the x-box.

    Microsoft put some pretty cheap fans in the xbox. Its pretty easy to swap them out. Check out xbox-scene or do a search for Xbox Hacking. That should return you a ton of sites.
