Yes Lian Li had one as it essentially allowed for active air to flow across the xbox 360 heat sink, as well as it exchanged the hot air hot. The 360 design is absolutely horrible for real air flow and which these things run so hot (and die)

It's funny that you have to put money into your console to make sure it doesn't die.

Yeah truth be told. Mine you I have a first Gen 360 that I bought an intercooler for and its still going strong after all these years.
My Brother and father have killed a combined 3 360's and 4 PS3's to date. Of which I would imagine are all heat related.

The only reason I put the watercooling on the console is because its JTAG'd and these consoles are getting more rare and as the years go on, if mines still working it could potentially be worth a ton of money being that you can't jtag any ole console

I came across this the other day on P-PC's new item page:
Product | Thermalright Ultimate CPU Cooling Solutions! USA

Looks rather intriguing and much cheaper than water cooling ;) Definitely adds a ton of surface area to the GPU heatsink so I can see it being fairly effective.

If I had one of those I would definitely take out the four mounting pieces included being that they are designed for the stock xbox xclamp hardware.

I would just fasten it on with some m5 bolts that you can get from any hardware store or RROD repair kit. That way you'd have good contact with the heatsink on the gpu and it would be as tight as you'd want to make it without warping the board.
