In xbtool it is possible to set the fan speed.
But if the fan speed it set to low the xbox get hot or the xbox automaticly set the speed higher?

What the best value (default is 20%)?

I didn't manage my speed with the bios because I put a toggle switch on the back to switch from 7v to 12v. But you don't have to worry about your Xbox overheating and getting damaged. At least, I don't think you do because it automatically shuts itself off at 160F. Normal operating temps are around 130F. Mine's about 115F with the fan speed upped, but I don't ever need it on there because I put a better, quieter GPU fan (v1.0 only)on that keeps it around 125F.

Maybe that can help you make a better decision. Or not. Whatever. wink.gif

damn dude,, i hope you dont think like that about your PC .

the xbox when playing games heavily gets damn hot.. a bit too hot for my tastes, but there isnt much i can do..

i have no friggin clue why bios's set the fan speed to like 25% and 40% shit,, a fan is there for a reason, to keep the stupid box cool .. wtf are they lowing the speed for.
i dont understand that.

and ive tried adjusting my fan speed but you cant just load any bios,, it has to be a virgin bios and then you have to go thru and reset all the settings. which , if you dont know how,, then your s.o.l.
