I am putting a Maxtor 200 gig 7200rpm drive into my xbox and was wondering if this external attached fan on Ebay is worth getting?

Ebay Cooling Fan

It isn't much so I am thinking about grabbing it but thought I'd ask here first.

kinda retarded if you ask me but hey it is your money and im not gonna tell you how to spend it

personally i wouldnt spend it on that and i'd just see how that harddrive holds up after you use it for a while, see if the temperatures get really high, then i would consider it.

havent had any heat issues with a maxtor 7200rpm 120 gig hd

If you're worried about excessive internal temperatures due to an upgraded HDD, causing a necessity for an addition or more powerful fan, it's your decsion. However, I have never had a problem with my xbox becoming too hot due to my HDD (120GB 7200RPM)
