unless you havent opened your console and/or your still letting the stock fan controller settings overheat your console then this blocks air flow more then anything.

Like Haygar said, Nidecs are much quieter than the Delta fans found in most consoles. The Sunon fans are much quieter as well. Every time I 12v mod a system that I repair I try to replace the fans if they are Deltas.
sunon's are crap, i like nidec's but they dont move air like deltas, which is the major factor in a console that often overheats.

Do anyone have the specs for the fans of the xenon ? And is there any difference between the fans in a falcon / xenon except for the power plug?
Would it make a difference to use the falcon fans in an xenon in terms of temperatures ?
I was thinking of replacing the fans in my JTagged Xenon with either the fans from the falcon or 2 60mm fans, because if i remember correctly 70mm fans are too big right?
you cant use a falcon fan in a xenon; zepher, falcon and jasper have a 3 pin plug, xenon is 4 pin.
delta is most common fallowed by nidec with a rare sunon; in my experience (since the console came out; worked on over 1500), all 3 can be found in every console regardless of motherboard version.
you could probably just barly fit 70mm fans if you own a dremel and know how to use it...but 70mm's arent very common.
imo the best solution to both the noise level and the overheating problem is simple.
60mm to 120mm fan converter.
120mm fans move more then 2x the air (if you get a good one) and are half as noisy.
