    my belief on cooling an xbox is that in order for it to cool better u need more air sucked out, to do that i put a fan on the side over the heat sinks, sucking in air through of filter, creating more circulation which equals more cooling=more gaming=}

     Yes, I understand that, and it is a good idea, however, your fans will be suck out nothing if all you have is fans blowing out.

    Sorry i might of worded it wrong but waht i meant to say is that i had a fan sucking in air over the heatsinks, and because the lines are going towards the fan that is sucking air out increasing the intake of air over the heatsinks creat more circulation.  one fan sucks in air the other fan on the back of the xbox sucks it out.  Before that all my games would freeze while loading now i havent ever had that problem since.

    i would like to see that... i have been tinkering with the idea of adding some small cpu cooler fans (left over from my Pentium pro) in to push more air.

    might want to tidy up those wires there since they could become a fire hazard. on a unrelated note i noticed the presence of the apple logo on the 360 which could create a interdimensional rift in our universe

    The best method is to use norml household fans

    i have one iver side faceing downwards at my xbox on the lowest setting

    my xbox has not crashed due to over hesating ever since

    i once bought an official xbox intercooler and it fried my system

    !DO NOT USE THEM!

    Replacing the xclamps would be much more effective and aesthetically pleasing than what you have there.
