    Quieten my xbox360

    i unfortunately have to share a room with my youngest brother ,,,,,,, the xbox is so damned loud, i can't play it when he goes to bed ......

    a quick google search says its the dvd drive that makes the noise & a easy way is to stop the vibrations using gromits / washers

    but that only shaves off up to 4db of noise (its 60db ish when in use)

    is there a way to reduce this so i can have late night games of halo & fifa ???

    If you just happen to have a couple of hundred quid burning a hole in your pocket

    As you'll know, XCM whisper fan is slightly quiter than standard, though its not a massive difference

    Not atm. But soon you will be able to copy games to the hdd and have them play off that. No dvd noise at all.

    60 db is very loud, mine is only a whisper louder than my ps3, and that is silent....

    the newer ones are far, far quieter than the older models...

    as deathtrap said: the game to hdd copying will quieten it, but apart from making sure it's placed on something relatively soft...there's not a lot available.

    The problem is he can't play it because it is too loud, he wont be able to play it at all without any power

    if its a constant noise surly it wont be a problem if he is asleep

    make him wear ear pluggs

    don't think my dad would agree with that lol .......

    Buy your brother some ear plugs :roll:

    can you take it to bits mate (bit this would void your warranty)
    i added a cpu fan to mine and it sometimes vibrates against cpu heat sink
    just added a little piece of card between them made mine alot quieter
    but you only need a little bit so you dont stop any of the air flow

    My 360 makes a lot of noise regardless of what I'm doing (playing a game or just idling at the menu).

    The Hitachi drive was modded and the speed reduced to 5x which did make a difference but nothing spectacular. I reckon it's the fans that cause most of my misery.

    When your not playing disk based a game, its the fans that are the noisiest.
    When you are playing a disk based game, its the disk drive thats the noisiest.

    Either way I'm waiting for this one to kick the bucket again then I'll pick up a Jasper console and sell the refurb if I get one back from repair.

    What's this 'soon be able to copy games to HDD' al about? I've missed that news...

    Sorry OP, no ideas here beyond what's already been said....

    that will be the big november update via xbox live
    although you can normally get the updates from the latest game disc the 1st time you put the disc in
    not quite sure how it will work
    surley you will need the original disc in so it can boot from it
    else its left open for piracy you would of thought

    yes, someone will make a single disc that will boot any game on the hard drive for us people with flashed drives out there... eventually..:thumbsup::whistling:
