Howdy folks,

I installed an 80mm temp.controlled fan, dremeled nearly all of the plastic from the HDD tray away,
installed a tiny fan under my HDD AND changed the thermal compound of CPU and GPU to Arctic Silver 5

Now my Xbox gets approximately 5 to 10C warmer than before - SH*T!

I'm a student at the local university of applied sciences and my spock-like brain
told me that my HDD fan is blowing hot HDD-air over the CPU cooler directly
to the 80mm exhaust fan. So I installed shildings and it became a bit better.

Now I need a good Idea how the 80mm fan sucks air directly from the CPU cooler.
I don't care about the GPU since it never gets hot (like a passive PC graphics card never gets really hot)

Hook me up with your brainstorms!

what if you made some sort of duct for the 80mm fan and then got a fan slim enough to fit under the hdd put that fan blowing air and then the other one on the duct sucking

I've yet to try it on a xbox (my box as far as the plastic is concerened is stock) but I've had good luck on my computer case (a full-tower case with loads of room) using regular old paper and scotch tape smile.gif There are two fans directly behind the HD cage on my case that I used this technique to duct air from the front drive bays across the HD's and out the fans, basicly seperating the HD's from the rest of the case.
