I made a modification to the tray my HD sits on, the stock one, and I took the little fan that is usally on the smaller heat sink off, and i attached the little fan to the bottom of the HD.

I can run the fan just fine, and nothing gets in the way, but I'm going to be getting a new xbox, but I want to keep the HD tray modification there, but by doing that, I'd still have an extra fan (the one on the new xbox's little heatsink) that would be able to be connected.. EXAMPLE:

as you can tell from my sweet diagram (poor quality) there would be no room for 3 power wires.. so does anyone know of a way to make them BOTH work?

The newer xboxes don't have gpu fans. There are points on the motherboard where you can solder the fan onto... Or you can just tap power from any yellow or red wire. (yellow = 12V, red = 5V)

so, since the new xboxs dont have GPU fans, then i really dont have any extra slot at all? (besides the one for the 40mm in the back?

and how would I go about taping power from a yellow or red wire, and which should I choose for a fan about the size of a 50 cent piece?

Most PC fans use 12V. It'll say on the fan itself... If you're using the one from your old xbox (I'd suggest putting that back, though,) I think it's 5V. Either way, it'll most likely say on the center of the fan. You could tap power from the HDD, or use the fan points from the main fan... Just find a suitable place to splice and use heat shrink tubing.

Well, when they designed the xbox, there's a reason they put the fan there and not on the hard drive...
