LoL. I remember buying a refurbished phat PS2 from GameStop once and it had a sticker inside that said "F**k You" and all sorts of other nice things. Oh yeah... and the heat sink was completely missing.

Lol I hope the previous owner did that.
On a side note, I think somebody posted pics like mine before too. I couldn't find the post and wanted to share my own. Sorry for the quality.

I've gotten 3 or 4 from gamestop that all looked like that. Freaked me out at first too but everything has always worked good. I would still like to know the specifics of the rewiring, seems like something to do with the fans.

I wonder if they do a 12V fan mod. I would have investigated, but I was aiming for a 15 min flash.
