I always have my pc on when playing my xbox cos i stream my music from it to listen to while playing a game, so i thought of a way to have my intercooler running off it to so it does not effect the power of the 360 console.
Here are the pics of what i have done, is it going to be safe and keep the xbox nice and cool?http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u301/sn...at/IMAG0004.jpghttp://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u301/sn...at/IMAG0007.jpghttp://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u301/sn...at/IMAG0006.jpg
The switch im using is off a old power supply out of a pc.

That actually looks pretty efficient. Looks like you're bypassing having the 360 power the intercooler, which is what most people blame for the problems associated with it. As long as there is nothing connecting any power from the PC to the 360, I don't see why you couldn't pull it off. Be cautious though.

heck if i know, i would just make sure that all the wires are covered up and in good condition. also feel everything connected and make sure it is not extremely hot. lol

i think its safe. but if i were you id buy a el cheapo 12v dc adapter from walmart, or radioshack. cause that would suck if you burn up your PC and your 360. hahah. make sure you got electrical tape. i soldered my connections, and i used heat shrink tubing. but electrical tape should be fine. its only 12v.
