Hey Deviation, you wanted to know my temps. Sorry I haven't been back here in a while, over 12 hours time difference tongue.gif The fan should work great too btw...

Before mod, load temps for CPU was 61C, MB was 53C
non-load temps (at Evox screen) around 2-3 degrees cooler

After mod, load temps for CPU is 54C, MB is 43C
non-load temps, around 1-2 degrees cooler


It does make a huge difference! We have summer here in Australia too and it does get pretty warm during the day.

Thanks everyone for the kind words. It feels good to be able to contribute something back to the 'scene'. It's very much appreciated beerchug.gif

well as of now before doing this mod i get:

43C for the cpu
34C for the mobo

so hopefully I can at least another 3-4C lower with this mod smile.gif

its about 21C outside during the day... but i'd say those are reasonable temps considering everything i've done to it (check the link in my sig)...

but i think its mainly because of my adjustable speed fan, basically adjustable fan = adjustable temps

in the tut, it says....."make sure you have the fan adjusted so it is blowing air into the xbox"...
is that correct?? I was always under the impression you always want air to blow out............I'm still new to xbox modding so there is still quite a lot I don't know........

you definately want your main fan to be blowing out, but since this is an intake fan mod, you want to have it blowing in... if your worried about dust or anything, just stick a filter in there over the fan

yeah, if you want cooler temperatures, make it go blow out..


nice job though... that doesn't look like a panaflo though... if you want quiet while having good air flow, get panaflo
