    PSU fans, louder than xbox

    hi,



    I have a fairly new Slim model and I just noticed the PSU fans are louder than I can recall. I just connected a Kinect sensor last night, didn't notice until then, but it may not be related. It;s loud with or without the Kinect.

    The PSU is cool, and cool air is coming out. Any ideas on this?



    Thanks!!

    Cleaning my 360 S.

    So I have my 360 slim sitting in an area that collects dust rather easily (I cannot move it). I know that the dust can clog up the fan and my Xbox has been showing the effects of the dust recently. It has been heating up insanely fast. I want to know how
    I can clean the dust out without opening up my Xbox 360 Slim. Is it possible for me to use an compressed air can to spin the fan up and clean it off without damaging the console?

    [quote user="THEOWENKILLER"]if the console does not take in air ,where does the air come from that it expels from the fans??? it has to otherwise it would be a vacuum inside and the fans would jam as there would be nothing to turn them.on the left side
    of the slim console is the air intake,the xbox does not physically "suck" this air in but it still takes in this air in order to expel it. [/quote] I'll clarify for your benefit. There is no fan that takes cool air in, only outake fans that expel hot air.
    Also you are not going to get banned for keeping your system cool. You'll get banned for Jtagging, and other dubious practices. This is from experience having modified two Xbox 360s already (for the sole purpose of keeping them cool by adding extra fans and
    adding LEDs etc, nothing dubious) Whether this will work on a slim or not I have no opinion of. I don't own one (yet).

    the hot air is expelled from the machine it is replaced by the surrounding air,however that happens.the cooler this air is the less heat the fans need to remove. people have got banned by replacing the internal fans as it is classed as tampering with your
    console.

    Is the upgrade from the Elite to the Slim Worth it?

    I'd say get the slim because I've left mine on for well over 24 hours and it still stayed the same tempurture. and to top it off it wasent even in the verticle position. the big diffrence between the slim and the elite is the fan a 120mm fan can run slower(saving
    power) and still provide air flow. the elite has the fan on the back two small fans witch run faster. anouther big deffrence id say is the fan on the slim is right over the cpu and the gpu cooling it better like a pc. think of a laptop the fan draws the air
    through te heat sync providing better cooling. the xbox has the same effect hance the vents on the sides.

    Xbox360 (non slim) queastion

    The only legal way is hearing how loud the Xbox's fan is and feeling the hot air from the fan. If your 360 heating up to fast, reposition it so it ventilates enough for it to breath good.

    [quote user="Unreal Warfare"][quote user=""]
    the fans are designed to disperse the heat around the console not the heat within meaning the air taken in by the console is cooler.most of these fans were originally designed for laptops,i have one under my console, my laptop and my ps3 all run silent
    and have done without any problems for over a year.i paid £1 for each from poundland.maybe coincidence but i have never had any overheating problems with any of them.

    [/quote] The Xbox 360 doesn't take any cool air in. It's a negative airflow designed case. The two fans at the back are outake fans and are basically designed to suck all the hot air out and are both independant of each other (one for CPU and the other for
    GPU). There's no intake fans in the system whatsoever. The only benefit to a cooling pad/mat, as I said before is to keep the underside of the Xbox 360 a little cooler as there are four RAM chips on the underside of the motherboard that use the metal casing
    of the Xbox 360 (housed inside the plastic shell) as a heat sink. [/quote] if the console does not take in air ,where does the air come from that it expels from the fans??? it has to otherwise it would be a vacuum inside and the fans would jam as there would
