Very interesting... it looks like they are able to direct the DVD heat away from the GPU with that and probably reduce the fans and overall power... and woohoo for LiteOn DVD drives

I was gonna get a new Elite since I have the orginal 20 GB models but I think I'll wait for the retail release of the 250 GB SKUs. I know they're available in limited editions such as the Forza 3 and Modern Warfare 2 bundles now but you know they'll be replacing the 120 GB SKUs soon.

reduce the fans power? I see this being RROD all over again...the GPU wasn't remotely cooled by that idiotic design. What are they thinking!? I guess maybe the new chips are really cool, otherwise Microsoft is shooting themselves in the foot again.

i think he means reduce the power used to generate the fans, not reduce the power of the fans themselves.

No sense in trying to explain. 80% of the people on this site believe they are engineers.

Meh who cares my 360 has just RROD on me I'm never buying a 360 again new motherboard or not I'm officially now a PS3 only gamer. Time to trade in my 360 stuff for PS3 games..

first 30 Million 360s with these?
That's what I'D like to know.

They can keep changing it, but the first (And majority) of buyers aren't going away.

Or I've had expereinces that beg to differ.
No need to get worked up on disagrees.
