Thanks to all for the insight!
I added a 50mm fan today right above the sink that comes off of the gpu (the small one with the copper tube). It reduced my GPU temp by 5 C but didn't do much for the CPU (maybe 1 C max). Its internal and looks nice though
I can now easily idle it at 48 C GPU and 55 C CPU
@nm - r u jtagged and getting those temps from the dash? those temps are very low for a xenon from what i've read. Also any link for the particular shroud mod? Can anyone suggest one please??
@neck - same thing for me with temps; i would also be interested to know how much the shroud mod helped
@dustin - I was in the same position but after adding the 50mm to the GPU it is much cooler now. Im also with you on the 60 C. My experience overclocking PC's is always kicking in; I want everything under 60 always lol Funny thing is crap in crap out... 360s are junk from the start so its only a matter of time IMHO regardless of temps/motherboard warping/etc. lol
@bran - wow 80 C isn't hot?? also, why not be concerned about high CPU temps; even though they (generally) won't damage the chip it will cause increased rates of failure right??
