A picture is worth a thousand words. Here's about 4000.
I've been in a few new 360's, and they ALL have these. They are mushy to the touch, and somewhat cool to the touch. I'm assuming they are some kind of cooling compound/device.
Any cooling experts see these before? Do they have a name? Anyone know if these can be bought somewhere?
Interesting that they are on the bottom and not the top. If they are for heat dissipation, perhaps they channel it out to the RF shielding/chassis?
