I’m not entirely certain if it's a common difference, but my nintendo 64 doesn’t have fourteen screws, but rather, 8 screws, and instead of 3 heat sinks, it only has the one separate heat sink on the chip close to the memory expansion pack. additionally, aside from the 6 screws closest to the expansion pack, the two other screws are held on by nuts under the metal piece.
