USB powered computer fan for Xbox360 Answered

I'm building a Gaming computer desk and have built a place for my xbox360 to go under my monitor which will require fans to keep it xtra cool to avoid the dreaded red rings of death. I would love to be able to get power somehow from my 360 i have a 120mm comp fan and tons of extra USB cables. I seen a post where someone used a batt operated fan and connected it to a USB. Will the same concept work? Do i risk damage to my 360? Thanx! Ray
