Hey everyone Im getting my xbox back this week :D from having the 3 red rings (aka red rings of death). This is going to be my 3rd 360 :disgust

So I am going to get a cooling fan for my 360 so it will prevent the RRoD but I want to know which one works best. I found this one for a cheap price http://www.buy.com/retail/product.asp?sku=205880674&listingid=11227024&dcaid=17902 but I saw a video that this covers up the orignal fans and could cause the red rings

Any one have a solution?

Well theres not many places I can put it but I have it on a stand by itself but I play a lot so a intercooler would help

Thanks for that jake

Now its like...Do I want one or not?

I play my 360 alot so I'd need one that doesnt block airvents and one that works from another source of energy other than the 360

I play live all the time and i have left it on well over 18 hours of just sitting there, so id say keep ur money.

Never had rings of death. BUT! I got my xbox live gamertag hacked/stolen and I called 1800-4MY-XBOX customer Service about like 7 times and they can't get my account. What the heck? My brother is calling them tomorrow and having a SERIOUS conversation. Maybe sue :confused:?

As a coincidence, I'm about to get my FOURTH Xbox. If only the PS3 was a descent FPS console...

if you dont have a airy room just get a small fan :] like a little pocket sized silent one and set it next to your 360s backsite where hot air flows from, not only does it heat the room in winter with warm air blowing around but also keeps your 360 frosty (not really) hah
