Thumbs up Anti-RROD Machine --Xbox 360

Hey guys, I've spent the last 2 days working on this beast and thought some people would care to take a look/comment on my work.





TEMPS:


What do you guys think? I like my new GPU temp over the old 70++ degrees Celsius!

Thanks!
I actually have some on each barb, they are small black ones and hard to see in the pictures...

In the first pic without coolant though, they haven't been added yet.

Very nice!

I had planned to do this, but never did. I did the bolt-mod and put a new fan in though and the damn thing still gave out a few months after...

70C is what the stock XBox "cooling" gets? Sounds like a side-mounted 80mm would do a ton better and still keep the noise in check... (I wouldn't know my XBox just sits there ignored most of the time as the TV it is attached to is used for other couch potato activities during the day.)

Looks like a fun mod anyway. What does the back look like? I'd like to know if any of the ports back there conflicted with your tubing.

Nothing at the back conflicted with anything :)
The stock fan is out so I actually have EXTRA space

Very nice.
I think if I remember correctly Lian Li had a Case specifically for the X-Box to drop into that did wonders for the temps.

I still wouldn't mind picking one of those up for a Rad/pump box. Would complement my X-2000 perfectly.
Nothing but cold hard cash holding me back....... Okay it really is the wife holding me back but cashflow sounds better.;)
