Actually I think putting it back a bit more would cool down the CPU much better. Because my HD and MB are at about the same temperature as before. BUT the CPU is suffering a few degrees becuase of my theory of the fan having to pull rather than push the hot air being generated by the hottest component of the XBOX which is the CPU. I could be wrong here but this is what I think. I will not be experimenting anymore though. For me to move it back against the Heatsink I would have to Dremel my HD Tray and the 2 tabs that hold the OEM fan. For a possible few degrees in drop I'd rather not butcher my XBOX.
good point. i wouldnt want to tear up any more of my xbox then is necessary either.
i dont agree with yuor pint of view. i belive that moving the fan would not cool the cpu down any more.
but if someone wanted to try, i think it would be interestign to see the results
maybe you coudl try putting a small 40mm fan between the existing fan and the cpu heatsink?
