How to keep your 360 cooler than Vanilla Ice
The whole overheating issue with the Xbox 360 has been pretty low-key over the past several months. Maybe the problem tapered out, or people just figured out resourceful ways to cool their system. Here's another way to keep it chilled if you're still having problems or are just looking for a much better way to do it.
Enter the Antec Notebook cooler. This thing was designed for computers, but wait: it flawlessly doubles as a base cooler for the Xbox 360 too. The pearly aesthetics even follow suit with the console. If you've been keeping an eye out for a ridiculously easy way to cool your 360, here's your solution. Not to mention it isn't terribly expensive for the use. You can pick this thing up for as little as $27 at some places.
The writer mentions that she conducted a test by placing it in a cramped up space with and without the notebook cooler. Within 30 minutes, it came to a screeching halt. However, after adding the new peripheral and placing it back in the unventilated area, the Xbox 360 ran for three hours without so much as a hiccup. Try this out and let us know how it works with your own setup
