Great bit of kit for keeping console cool and we all know that the 360 does shut down if it runs too hot.

Coolers for the 360 are not a good idea if you read about them.

agreed with the above. avoid the coolers.

How is no modification required, if they are internal fans?

Voted warm, as for the price of coolers, this is a good price. But, my Xbox 360 makes an absolute racket - will these help? I doubt it ...

I agree with posts 3 and 4

DO NOT INSTALL THESE COOLERS

If your on live you could end up being be banned :?

read all of the link if your confused.

Do not buy this type of **** for your 360.

mine sounds like a plane about to take off!
good price but what they said ^^^ stay away! just make sure you leave plenty of room for natural airflow around your xbox.

My 360 is running alot more quieter and cooler since coming back from repair after the dreaded 3 red lights.
i suprisingly got 18months use out of it before it died aswell. (an extra week if you include the towel trick ;-))

it used to turn my room into a sweatbox when the door and windows were closed.

I'm afraid that link refers to internally installed 12v fans - not the external ones, which is what this is, I cannot imagine why this is getting colded, this is an excellent deal, and these fans do slightly decrease the probability of your xbox dying on you, I dont know how loud or quiet the own brand HMV one is, although, Ideally you want some kind of soundproofing between you and the 360 anyway as it is incredibly noisy as standard - I doubt these fans could be any louder.

To clarify, you can get banned for undertaking internal modifications to your Xbox 360, however this device plugs in between your xbox and your power supply (like the Nyko Intercooler) and you do NOT need to open your xbox to use it so it definitely does not contravene Microsoft's Terms of Service - ergo, you will NOT get banned.

PS cheers OP, I've ordered one as for £4 its worth the extra life it will probably give my xbox.

How is this cooler powered? Using the USB from the xbox for its power is not recommended. If it is independently powered then it might be ok.

Unfortunately this is not true. External fans have caused overheating. These things are not as simple as more fans = more cooling. If the air is not blown in properly (as is the case in many of these external fans) then it can actually worsen the cooling system. And extra power consumption (to power the fans) puts extra strain on PSU thus it heats up.

Microsoft has even advised against the use of these, and I think that if your xbox overheats whilst using one then you don't get the normal warranty.

This debate re-occurs every time someone finds another deal for xbox 360 "coolers"!!
