Thanks. I like that it if it isnt needed it turns itself off. I do not sure how it work exactly. i think it just senses the xbox heating up and turns the fan to keep the system cool.

The fan I am using is an external fan. It does not plug directly into the xbox like other ones. I have learned this from my first XBOX because it errored my system because it was not getting enough power to the CPU due to the Fan using up the power. This one has its own power source that just attaces on the back.

Lobo, I would highly recommend not using a cooling fan with your 360. I've heard lots of reports on them causing issues with 360s, and your warranty may be voided if Microsoft notices that the problem was caused by a fan. Apparently if your 360 is going to get the RRoD then it's going to get the RRoD, and fans do nothing to help. Combine that with the fact that they may actually CAUSE problems and personally I don't think they're a good idea. That's my 2 cents at least : )

OH yeah they certainly do. I bought this elite back when the price was 449.99 and now it being 299.99 i was able to cover it again. Plus I bought and external cooling fan(which I still dont think will keep it from tanking if it ever does again) and a charging system for the controllers so I dont have to ever buy batteries for them again. So thats pretty good.

I'm in the same boat with one of my xbox it's doing the exact same thing I sent it out to xbox they sent it back and claimed no problem found but it's still freezing so I'm sending it back to them over the weekend to see what's the problem with it

Today my very close friend Mr. XBOX 360 Elite is starting to show signs of its demise. Game freezing with and without the hard drive but no red lights come on in this situation. Call of Duty will have to wait till I can get to a local best buy store and replace it using my plan with them.
