Seems a good price for this:-

The Cooler King is the 3-in-one solution to cooling your XBox 360, connecting up to 4 media players at the same time and playing games with high definition sound and picture quality.

1. The internal fan cooling system reduces the operating temperature of the console - helping to prolong gaming sessions.

2. At the same time the Cooler King gives you the option to connect VGA, Component and S-VHS cables for high definition gaming, and optical output for digital surround sound.

3. You can also connect your MP3 player, digital camera and additional wired controllers through the USB hub multi-tap facility.

The Cooler King is easy to install - just plug into the XBox 360 and go! (Comes supplied with a scart lead for connection to standard definition TV).

I'm with saintscouple - have heard and read so many bad things about most of these 360 coolers that I keep well clear. Have mine sat on a laptop cooler (if anyone is interested I use the Antec Notebook cooler) since I moved it inside a TV cabinet and the machine feels rather cool even after a good few hours play with the cabinet doors closed (to block out the 360 noise!) :geek:

As mentioned in some of those reviews, these really arent worth the money I'm afraid. When my 360 started to die I investigated whether or not one of these would help, but to my horror in some instances people had said it actually killed off theirs! The best solution really is as you have said esarty, to have a laptop cooler as they are defo not as bulkly and seem to be actually made for the job! lol.

I would recommend keeping your xbox out of a dust free environment too if you can ;)

voted cold due to reviews!

Sorry!

The coolers that were bad were the Nyko Intercooler because it plugged into the 360 power socket. Mine still works fine but my mates melted a bit, my power plug does get VERY hot, looking at the picture this doesn't plug into the power socket, instead is seems to get it's power from the usb port. I've ordered a couple and voted hot.
#8
so do a need cooler for my 360?!
#9
dont buy these, they do more damage than good and ruin your standard warrenty as they leave scorch marks on the back of the console.

had the nyko one for a while, complete waste of money.

IGNORE THE REVIEWS!
I have one and it works amazingly. I now have gorgeous HD gaming on my PC monitor thanks to the VGA output.

Just look at the ports on this thing! Optical audio out too :o)

The official VGA cable has BOTH of these outputs, and doesn't affect the warranty. Unfortunately these "coolers" really aren't necessary and in fact may damage the 360. Voted cold.

Coolers are waste of money. Microsoft has admitted the first Xbox 360's released had a problem. But the new ones are fine. Ive had my Xbox 360 since December and its been in heavy even now im using it watching a film. Never had a problem

IF Microsoft thought they needed extra cooling they would of made official cooling system or something
#13
Is it possible to turn the fan off on this thing? Because the phono surround-sound outputs could be rather useful to plug into my analogue 5.1 sound system. Anyone know?
#14
How do you have the Xbox connected to your TV? You should be able to buy a phono extension cable to take the audio cables from there to your surround system without buying this although the cabling may not be that neat.

Yes but those phono will only be stereo. If you look at the above picture, there are 6 phono plugs (i.e. 5 surround speakers and 1 subwoofer). As my surround sound system only accepts phono inputs (not optical) this would be an ideal way to use this system on my 360. However I don't want the fans switched on, and would only use this for it's sound output capabilities. Hence I am just wondering if the fans can be switched off.

If you look closer you will see that only two of those jacks are audio. One is for composite video, and the other three are for component video. It just gives you the choice because you can't plug a regular 360 cable in.

Even if it did have 6 audio plugs, I'd avoid using it with the fans off. It would prevent the 360's fans from working effectively, and would cause your 360 to fry very quickly.

Try looking for a spdif to analog (rca) converter, or maybe theres a company that makes these type of 360 cables. Otherwise, I guess the only thing to do is bite the bullet and buy a better AV receiver.

if your warrantys gone it would be better just to do the 12v mod and if your confident enough upgrade to as5.

Unfortunately not, of those six phono connections only two are audio - it's basically the same as the composite/component cable supplied with the premium Xbox 360. You have two for audio (white and red), composite (yellow) and three for component (red, green and blue).

I see what you mean about your surround system, I was assuming you were meaning a fully analogue system such as Pro Logic which is carried over stereo cables but you have a 5.1 system with six analogue inputs.

Oops! That will teach me to look closer.

In that case, I hold by my original judgement that this is a waste of money and may damage the 360.
#20
I like the idea of this device simply because it allows you to use standard cables for audio and video however I'm not interested personally as I have the connections I need and don't like the cooling aspect with it obstructing the back.

Microsoft DO believe the 360 needs extra cooling, hence why now units that are sent in for repair are fitted with an extra copper pipe to heatsink from the GPU. I have only had my 360 a month and yet is was manufactured August 2006, I only hope I dont develop the red ring of death. Microsoft just wont clearly admit there is a problem with the 360 design.
