|The higher the fan speed the cooler the xbox. I would not recommend slowing your fan speed down.|
I agree. I moved my fan from the 7v t 12 v and it keeps my cpu around 120 degrees Farenheit. Before the switch it use to get to 140.

|Question does the xbox keep the settings at 7v for when the xbox gets hot and kicks it up to 12v and if so would overriding the setting harm it?|
The fan really isn't running at 7v, unless the info I have is wrong. What I've read is that it uses pulse-width modulation to control the speed. It may appear as 7v on a meter, though.
If it gets hot and kicks the speed up to 100% then you'd just see no change from the 100% setting. It wouldn't harm anything. Running your fan at 100% all the time might cause it to wear out prematurely, of course.
