After Fan-mod... Xbox Gets Hot
Posted 08 May 2004 - 05:00 PM
i changed the back fan of my box with a new, very silent one (Blacknoise Noiseblocker S2) (11-19db(A)).
When i run him directly on 12v, he's too loud for my ears, and when i put him on the mainboard 3pin (of the orignal fan) he's very silent.
Silent, but the xbox gets hot. up to 65 degrees (CPU) and 52 degrees (GPU) seems to hot for me, what would you say?
I read the FAQ which says 65 is the limit for the cpu and 49 for the gpu.
Now i'm worried about the lifetime of my box.
If it's possible i don't want to install a second fan in the side.
Thanks for your replies,

I never disassembled the heatsinks, i only changed the back stock fan.

i did the stock 12V mod but then got a different fan for the lights and shit. then i did the 12V mod to my new fan and it gets like 15 degrees (F) hotter then with the stock fan in there

Is there an idea except installing an additional fan or make this fan louder?

it plugs into the muther board so it can tell the fan what rpm to run at and then plugged the power into my 12v supply and when i put my hand on my xbox its always cool even after 14 hours of xbox live gameing.
and its quit.
plus i put a fan under my hard drive.
but tho i have the oldest xbox, one of the originals, and i have noticed sutile differences between the old version and new versions
i also have a fan on my heat sink to lol

I guess they built in some resistors so the fan doesn't get the maximum power.
So xbtool woudln't do anything...

if i turn the pot up (when i'm having it on the 12v of the harddisk) the fan gets "loud" (to me ) but keeps the box cool.
