Now that many of us are able to see our xbox 360 system temps via software due to the release of the awesome XeXMenu, I thought it would be good to have a dedicated temperature thread.

If you are able to measure your temps in any way, please state what method you have used to do so, and any other relevant info, like any cooling mods you may have installed.

Try to stay on topic and stick to the formula below. wink.gif

INFO:
Model: Elite (Falcon)
MFR Date: 31/08/2008
Time in service: ~ 2 weeks
Usage: Light
Cooling: Stock
Temps read via: XeXMenu v1.0

Room Temp ~ 23C

Idle
CPU: 49.5C
GPU: 57.1C
EDRAM: 61.7C
MB: 34.3C

Gaming from disc (NFS Shift)
CPU: 52.9C
GPU: 68.1C
EDRAM: 74.4
MB: 36.8

Gaming from HDD (NFS Shift)
CPU: 52.5C
GPU: 67.2C
EDRAM: 73.4C
MB: 35.9C

Video Playback (WMV HD 1080p)
CPU: 51.9C
GPU: 61C
EDRAM: 67.6C
MB: 36.4C

After playing a game for a while, then exiting to the dash and running XeXMenu to see the temps, the temperature keeps rising quite quickly for a few minutes, reaching the following temps before slowly cooling again. unsure.gif

CPU: 52.5C
GPU: 72.1C
EDRAM: 78.1C
MB: 36.7C

My GPU seems to top out about 75C

Played some bayonetta for half an hour didn't make much difference to the temp.

on an xenon with the new type GPU heatsink and xcm whisper fan (50% more air my arse!!)


Now at least we can all see what cooling mods actually do anything...

As the xbox360 CPU is based on the powerpc chip from IBM similar to that used in the G5 so we could assume that the temperature properties are going to be similar. The G5 had a nominal operating temp of 160 C which is 71 C. and what we are pretty much seeing with the xbox. The top rated temp I can find for a PPC chip is 105 C or 221 F. Smokin smile.gif

But then the G5 had some enourmous heatsinks and cooling systems, I remember the top model was watercooled as standard.

Taken from the other thread..

Xenon with 7v fan mod, Wilhelmis Hybrid advanced uniclamp, 7v fan mod and the metal fan grills cut out.

Idle.

First I'll start off with cooling mods:

AS5
12v mod on just the GPU fan
duct mod with divider

I'm also using the stock heatsinks(old style GPU heatsink). I'm a little confused on the way the xexmenu temps work. It seems my temps always start low and count slowly for ~7 minutes before they level out. This makes it easy for me to get idle temps, but gaming temps aren't practical using this method. If I have to wait 7 minutes to get my temps they're no longer the same as they were while playing the game. Here are mine anyways.

Idle: (xenon system)
CPU: 70.0
GPU: 60.0
EDRAM: 60.1
MB: 29.3

46C / 47C / 50C /32C
At my almost silent 120mm fan mod jasper.
Temperatures rise about 2C after playing Assasins Creed for 30mins and switching back to xexmenu.

I'll just copy and paste what I posted on the xboxhacker forums.

Model: Falcon (later version with only 4 RAM chips on top of mobo)

Temp1: CPU:59.3C GPU:73.2C EDRAM:78.0C MB:35.0C - idle in XeXMenu config screen
CPU:57.4C GPU:64.6C EDRAM:69.3C MB:30.7C - idle in NXE

Temp2: CPU:60.5C GPU:73.8C EDRAM:78.8C MB:35.3C - Tomb Raider Underworld 30min

Temp3: CPU:59.8C GPU:69.1C EDRAM:74.2C MB:35.7C - Stable after 30min+ of gaming

Cooling modification: Talismoon WhisperFan

Ambient temperature: 23.5C

Other info: Console kept vertically, Microsoft HDD plugged in, displaying via HDMI @ 1680x1050, no cooling mods other than Talismoon fans running at stock speeds.



UPDATE: I have now done the fan shroud mod and run the same tests (missing out temp 2)

Temp1: CPU:59.0C GPU:71.5C EDRAM:77.4C MB:34.9C - idle in XeXMenu config
CPU:57.5C GPU:62.3C EDRAM:67.9C MB:33.5C - idle in NXE

Temp3: CPU:57.9C GPU:65.5C EDRAM:71.5C MB:33.8C - Stable after 30min+ of gaming

Ambient temperature: 23.9C

Conclusion: Doing the fan shroud mod looks to lower temps by 1-2 degrees. However, it is difficult to get accurate temperature readings since they change so quickly when going from game to XeXMenu to NXE etc. I used the guide button and recently played menu to navigate to XeXMenu as quickly as possible to get my readings. Also, Talismoon fans don't appear to be any more efficient over the stock fans.

I rechecked the temps on my system while it was sitting vertical. Here were my temps:

Horizontal
Idle: (xenon system)
CPU: 70.0
GPU: 60.0
EDRAM: 60.1
MB: 29.3

Vertical
Idle: (xenon system)
CPU: 72.7
GPU: 62.0
EDRAM: 62.0
MB: 29.1

So mine seems to run cooler while sitting horizontal.

Started a temp thread in the hardware forum. It got closed.

copy paste from there
Version: Xenon
Heatsinks: Stock heatsinks
DVD Drive: NO
Case attatched: NO Top of case
Mods: 12V fans
Idle (Right after starting xbox):
CPU: 57
GPU 70 (!)
EDRAM 57
MB 31

After this I added a fan shroud to the xbox
Version: Xenon
Heatsinks: Stock heatsinks
DVD Drive: NO
Case attatched: NO Top of case
Mods: 12V fans, Carboard seperator in fan shroud and cardboard extension over heatsinks to fan shroud
Idle (Right after starting xbox):
CPU: 57.8
GPU 53.2
EDRAM 51.7
MB 31

After putting the dvd drive back into the system, I guess I must have increased airflow even further because GPU temps went down to 46-49C Other temps remained the same

According to this modding the fan shroud to increase the air pressure over the GPU lowers temperatures dramatically!

Ahh, I guess I should provide mine for entertainment :-)




Sensors:

CPU: 78.6C
GPU: 82.6C (lol, no wonder these HDMI ones get e74 ;-)
EDRAM: 79.3C
MB: 36.9C


My system appears to run quite toasty. I should leave it open and use it for a foot warmer ;-)

took out the DVD drive and put a 80mm fan on top of the GPU heatsink and the GPU temp is down to 55c idle
