How To Improve Cooling In Xbox?
Posted 08 April 2012 - 11:58 PM
Console is hard modded (dual-bios, component video output, LG dvd, larger HDD, 80mm fan). I've also changed the thermal grease to Arctic Cooling MX2.
I think about changing the heatsinks, but I found only 1 which will be suitable (80mm) and it is quite small...
In my country it is impossible to buy Iceberg.

1 - Take out both heatsinks, clean them, lap them and apply arctic cooling 5 thermal paste. Granted, I have a 1.6 xbox, so no fan on the heatsink.
2 - Swapped the 60mm fan by a Noctua 80mm fan, cutting out the fan corners to make it fit, and the xbox metal grid to maximize airflow.
3 - Since I swapped the HDD for a 7200RPM 120GB, I also cut out the back of the HDD tray so my 80mm fan sucks air from the tray, cooling the HDD.
So not much more than you did, and like you, I have temps at 55/45, which I too think is fine.
