Keep your Xbox 360 Cool, Save Energy, Heat up and area, and use your own Hard Drive, yes very long title, i know. But there was nothing else to describe this awesome project. Now, This whole project for me was completely FREE besides the intercooler. I used all salvaged parts. Lets get started. shall we?
Step 1: Things you will need
Whatchya' gonna need doc?
Well... Not much
You will need:
4 Various Computer cooling fans(I used two average sized ones, one jumbo, and one CPU fan from a Win98 Compaq.)
Wire (any type, it doesn't matter, i used my trusty stereo wire
Nyko TS intercooler (Newest and greatest one, for 20.00$, this automaticly turns on when heat is sensed and turns off when heat dissipates, and uses its own outlet, instead of mooching off of the Xbox power supply)
A box (suitable for holding the two average and one jumbo fans, i used my sisters mario kart wii box
Dryer vent tubing (Ya' know, the silver tubing that's behind your dryer to travel the heat outside)
12v DC 1 amp transformer(I got one from an old phone/answer machine
Fuse & 2 amp fuse (From my fathers old Benz auto starter)
These are optional
A HDD that can be used for your xbox (I had a 320gb Seagate EXHDD)
Ubuntu Linux Live CD (Used to format your HDD to FAT because windows refuses to format anything over 32gb to fat)
