I don't have a 360, but I know many of you have them here. I'm not sure of overheating has been an issue for anyone yet, but this seems like it would be a worthwhile investment, especially with the hours that people will be putting into Oblivion

. It kinda sucks a console would need this type of accessory out of the box, but at least the Intercooler fans could prevent any problems from occurring in the first place.

i suppose it could even be a good idea. i was originally thinking the fans on teh back of the xbox were exhaust, but i see now they're intake. i suppose it might be a good thought

no kidding about the noise though

i had a 360, sold it, and still have my original xbox

been waiting for availability to go up so i can either get it at costco (store warranty), or find a cheaper price, and none of the launch games were much fun...but now there's oblivion and graw......hummm............tasty...


btw: on the nyko, i would sure hope its fans could keep up with the airflow the 360's fans are pulling, otherwise it might be detremental

That thing sits over the 360's existing fans, kinda seems like a dumb idea to me. I have no heat issues with mine, it's run for 14 hours straight with out one hiccup.

Huh?

The 360's rear fans are an outtake fan. Blows air out the back. At least that's how mine is.

RMA that sucker. It's not normal. Unless you have it suffocating, sealed up inside a small cabinet.
