Xbox 360 Cooling Comparison

Recommended Posts

The Contenders

 

Nyko:

 

Reduce the internal operating temperature of the 360 while prolonging the consoles lifespan. The Intercooler 360 is a snap on cooling attachment that easily connects to the Xbox 360 to significantly reduce the internal heat of the console. The Intercooler 360 provides increased air flow throughout the 360 which allows the internal circuitry to perform at cooler temperatures and last longer. No internal modification of the Xbox 360 is required. A pass through power connection utilizes the existing Xbox 360 power supply negating the need for an extra AC adaptor. The unit also powers on and off automatically with 360 and the intercoolers small size will fit in tight spaces like entertainment centers with your 360 displayed in either horizontal or vertical format.

 

Pelican:

 

Cool down your 360 with Pelican's innovative functional Fan Stand. This unique stand gives the 360 added stability when standing and extends the life cycle of sensitive IC and other heat sensitive components.

 

Both products we are reviewing today retail for less than $20 at most major retailers.

Doesn't anyone over at Microsoft think it's odd that there is now an entire market in place that sells products to keep the X-Box 360 cool enough to play games without crashing?

this is just insane how we need 3rd party companies to keep a commercial product to work properly. We don't see PC users who don't o'c get WC since their PC is unstable at stock. CPUs are released out to the public and there's no need for 3rd party cooler to run at stock

 

I'm anti-360 tho, so keep that mind (Y)

This is no "pimping" up, its a necessity

 

Exactly! I have two friends who have each bought the X-Box 360 and have already had to return it at least once. One of them has returned it three times.

well if the rumour of a re-release before Xmas is true, the new 360 should run cooler and should be smaller from what I've read

 

Das, did your friends buy these on first arrival? Some users had to live with their 360 issues until stores got stock again months and months later

 

I have to admit, those who modded their 360 with watercooling and window kits have done a great job on it :whistle:
