Thermals of the XBox 360 Updated

Xbox 360 LogoIn my last article covering the thermals of the XBox 360, I posted a link to a picture of the 360’s internals.

There was even an article that showed how you can tell without taking the XBox 360 apart. But today I found an article that had actual pictures of the the internals, not just snapshots taken through a grill. Again, old news, but here’s a chance to give people a side-by-side comparison.
