    Alright. I couldn't disengage the cables for the display unit and power button, so stopped at that point. Next time I open the case I'll have a look for what your describing. Cheers

    I normally disconnect the display cable from the motherboard.
    If you don't have any high pitch whine, then you got it.

    Huh alright, cheers for that. Makes a lot more sense now. I am partially surprised that removing that screw, which will reduce the stability of the fan module, actually has a net reduction in sound. I would have picked the whole module would now vibrate, so it would have resulted in more noise.

    The more you know xD

    I didn't remove a screw. It is held in with 1 screw. 3DS cost saving measure

    They probably fixed this in later releases. The 'snout' is right next to the fan blades of the squirrel cage rotor. This is what causes the high pitch screech that can't be dampened by doors alone. This is not the norm but rather a finding in one of eight machines.
