Product Description

Product Packaging: Standard Packaging

Utilize Nyko’s cutting edge TempSmart technology to keep your Xbox 360 S console running at optimal environmental conditions with the Intercooler STS. The Intercooler STS’ brand new design provides increased air flow away from the 360 which allows the console to perform in a cooler, better ventilated environment, ideal for cramped entrainment centers. No internal modification of the Xbox 360 is required. Nyko’s TempSmart technology automatically powers on the Intercooler’s fans when needed, and continue to cool the console even after the system has been powered down till a proper ambient temperature has been reached. The Intercooler TS is powered by a sleek USB cord that easily plugs into the back of the Xbox 360 S console. The design of the Intercooler STS blends seamless with the design of the Xbox 360 S console, and works in both the horizontal and vertical position.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. April 2, 2011
Product Packaging:Standard Packaging
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I didn't buy this off Amazon but it is so great I had to review it for others here. This fan is literally every last word it claims to be. It is fully automatic, and will even turn on and off by itself when the system is OFF if it's still too hot. It has a very powerful fan, and moves heat consistently and efficiently. I would recommend this to anyone.

I have had mine for almost 5 months and haven't had to touch it once since I installed it. It does the job, and it does it very, very well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Xbox Intercooler STS April 28, 2011
Product Packaging:Standard Packaging
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
To start I didn't think that this item would be worth it, that is until I received it and put into action. Placing the STS on the Xbox was a "Snap" and it cleans up real nice. Not to mention it is very quiet. You don't hear it running during gaming mode. It does just like it says it does, works when it registers the temp. going up and stays working even after the Xbox is shut down allowing the system to cool down. This Intercooler STS is well worth the price and Im sure with it keeping my Xbox at a normal temperature will add longevity to my gaming experience. I have recommended this Intercooler to all of my gamer enthusiasts. Thanks for everything.

4.0 out of 5 stars THE NEED TO READ is HERE February 2, 2013
Product Packaging:Standard Packaging
Ive owned quite a few consoles over the last decade and a half. Im telling you flat out that the best thing to do is buy one of these for your Xbox 360 slim. With a few other reasons of course.

The system generates enough heat that over time will cook itself. "If" you want to increase the lifespan of your Xbox 360 S console buy this fan for the following reasons.

- It fits snug on the side of the console and neatly plugs into the back USB port, powered by the console itself.

- The amount of heat it removes from the console is substantial enough that it dried my hands in 2 minutes after washing them. Thats an example of how much heat it pulls out of the console itself.

- It runs quietly enough.


- DONT stand your xbox up on its end. Lay it on its side. Statistics show scratch rings occur when using your console when its standing. The game disc then becomes unreadable, and uninstallable. It also makes the game "untradeworthy" when you stand your console on its side because of these pictures like the one showing this product. People think youre supposed to stand the console upright and thats ok. Its not. Another reason is heat RISES. So to get the most heat out of your console, lay it down. In the picture the fan is at the lowest point, heat is at the highest. Despite any vent at the top the fan is more useful when the xbox is laying down.

- Install your games onto your hard drive (or USB/Memory device). When going to the xbox dashboard, and pressing "X" from the controller you can select "play" on the dashboard which confirms the console starting the game for you... but running it from its storage device WITHOUT spinning the disc after confirming its authenticity.

The product runs after the unit is powered off (good) and turns off automatically. It directs the air out and away from other components.

5.0 out of 5 stars This actually works! But not mandatory August 6, 2011
Product Packaging:Standard Packaging|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was a little skeptical at first but I went ahead and gave it a try. My Xbox 360 slim has already been opened so this was a great opportunity to install a tempurature gauge inside the console. With out the intercooler I was getting temps around 45C (original xbox 360 temp is 55C) during a race in Forza 3. Not bad but I was more concerned with the rise in tempurature when the system is shut off. After 3 minutes of shut down the temp rose to 52C! Which is normal since the system is still hot and the fan is no longer running. Similar to a car with an electric fan. But a car will kick on the fan periodically to cool down the car after its shut off. The xbox doesn't. Here is when the Nyko Intercooler comes in. With the intercooler installed I get temps between 33C and 37C during a race! Also the fan will continue to run after the system is shut down to cool off the system in relation to the temp rise after shut down.

In conclusion this device is not mandatory but it does give you a an extra piece of mind. And it does EXACTLY what it is supposed to do. This is also perfect for people who have their system in tight spaces like entertainment center or next to a cable box. Hot air is diverted to the front of the console and not the top or sides where heat is traped. As for as noise. It will make your xbox about 7-10 db louder but it is still quieter than an elite IMO.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've seen alot of reviews saying this cooler is to loud and maybe they've gotten a faulty one Just let me say this I cant even hear this thing when it's at full blast I never realized how hot the xbox 360 really got until I installed this cooler also My 360 is all black without the chrome looking ends and the picture of this cooler shows it has the chrome look aswell however it was all black which is fine with me kinda makes the xbox look stealthy if you have an 360 S just buy this you wont be sorry.

2.0 out of 5 stars Looks great, but failed miserably! February 24, 2012
Product Packaging:Standard Packaging|Verified Purchase
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I purchased & received from Amazon who were great to deal with. Installation was easy and looked great on Xbox. 12 days after installation unit failed and Xbox began to overheat. I could not return because I scrapped the boxes. I disassembled the STS to diagnose the problem. I found careless assembly of the delicate wiring created an intermittent shorting of the thermal sensor, causing the motor to burn out. If this should happen, you run a great risk of overheat damage to your Xbox because the dead STS unit blocks the airflow. Beautiful design, but keep checking
that it is functioning. Once intalled, reliability is critical. I sent an Email to Nyko, but no reply as yet. I do not fault Amazon for this.

This is a piece of crap. It does not cool your system. It actually makes it overheat. I find this ironic.
