LOL, ok i feel dumb, i was measuring up in my XBOX like 20 mins ago for when i put a CPU fan on, and i noticed i only hooked up my 12v HDD fan to the Red and not the yellow 12v wire
needless to say i fixed this right away, not that it helped in any overall system cooling, but its given me peace of mind now that my HDD is getting some good airflow over it.
Anyways ive had an idea shadowjin, you upped your standard fan to 12v right? Im planning on doing that now, did you just get a Y power splitter and tap that? As thats what ive done for my HDD fan. Also, have you cut away the metal "grill" behind the standard fan? Because i was looking at that, and i though if we cut that "grill" away it would restrict airflow even less.
Also what temps are you now running at?
EDIT: Fixed a typo
oh and incase anyone was wondering, i have the fan under my HDD blowing onto the HDD.
EDIT: Hell, i might even look for another 60mm fan with high end CFM to totally replace the XBOX case fan so long as its not too loud. Preferably something less than 35dB(A) but with an output of 30CFM+, heh, im prolly dreaming, but im gonna keep searching. This post has been edited by Morglum: May 23 2003, 04:17 PM
