I water-cooled my Xbox 360

One man gets wet and wild with his console as he rips it apart and pulls out the fans. What's your idea of modding your Xbox 360? Putting it on its end? Putting a sticker on it? Or buying a new faceplate? That's nothing compared to the extreme lengths gone to by Daniel Whitehouse.

while I must admit that no noise while playing would be nice,a better mod would be one that elininates that damn brick,all these other mods are rather usless.Unlike those other astetic mods this one halps to quiet the system,very cool.

i think microsoft themselves prob should have come up with this idea to keep the system cooler and more quiet! A well, as long as mine doesnt break down:)

I wouldn't have the nerve to try the mod myself, but can't help wonder why M/S hasn't addressed the cooling issue themselves...
