I have a 360 ELITE I don't think it has a 2nd heat sink, but anyway I have it standing up and a fan on the left hand side as U R standing in front of it I touched that side before I put the fan there and it got pretty hot after running for 30min then I put the fan there 10in 3speed and it made a big difference now that side is cool to the touch just wanted to share I think it helps alot.

I have a big Air Conditioning unit in my game room where i play the 360, so, fo you think if i put that at it's coldest (17 degrees C) it would help prevent the overheating like with your fan?

I'm waiting for the halo 3 edition console, that should have an extra heatsink and 65nm chip already installed.

do have a chance of getting red rings if the heatsink is too small. I think Micro is just trying to be retroactive and fix all the old ones with the extended warranty.

I am a 360 fan but knowing about PC technology it only makes sense.

I am sure all consoles being manufactured now would have the new heatsinks. Why would they keep manufacturing faulty consoles. The ones that don't have them are probably the consoles that have been sitting in stores for a while.

I am just wondering if those add on intercoolers would help. I am sure if you keep your house cool or use a fan it will help extend the life of your 360. Just like it would any other console or PC.
