4.0 out of 5 stars Significantly Quieter and Smaller than the Intercooler EX December 24, 2008
By ehren m
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Unit is VERY noticeably quieter and smaller than the Intercooler Ex. Auto on/off function is great, that way the 360 starts up quiet and as you play games turns on as needed. Great improvement over the EX.

EDIT: After using this for the last week I wish I could take the review up another star. The TS is actually keeping the entire 360 cool to the touch, even the games are now coming out at room temp instead of on fire. And like I said before, the sound is WAYYY less than the EX, not a whole lot louder than a computer.

EDIT: Pushing 5 months and absolutely no problem with my 360...gets used daily and is working like a charm :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Everything is better in pairs November 12, 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
The Nyko intercooler TS is the long awaited cooler to finally put rest to the problems of the past (draining power from the console), but it falls short of delivering the ultimate solution. For people in warm to hot climates (Caribbean) like me, the problem of the Xbox 360 overheating is very serious, as i can testify that my first one went the way of the RROD, even with a fan next to it.

Nyko's new product does works as advertised, it gets some hot air out, but to my surprise it does have a mixed effect on the console performance. While playing Gears of War i noticed that the intercooler caused some noticeable lag that was not present before. In my opinion it is because the fans are under powered (low RPM) and to that you add that the intercooler blocks the original fans exhaust, resulting in a half way solution, or increased problems.

What i am doing now is a combination of two imperfect products:
The Intec Cooling Station(a cool base with a fan) + the nyko intercooler TS =
the results are great, the game disc comes out at room temperature, and the console performs as good as ever (note that there is no air conditioning in the room).

My recommendation is that if overheating is a serious trouble for you, dont rely in just one product to solve it.

*****Edit Dec 6 2008******

Almost a month later the intercooler is working great. excellent purchase for any xbox 360 player

***2nd Edit Feb 3 2009****

As stated in the first two paragraph, the intercooler performs as advertised, but beware. IF you plan to use your 360 in the HORIZONTAL position, this product might not be enough. Given to the limited space inside the console, the motherboard and all computing components are sitting below the DVD drive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works better and worth the money November 9, 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have had this product for three days so far as it says in the product summary it has a temperature control. Since it has a external ac adapter you do not have to worry anymore of the product ruining your Xbox anymore. i found that what it advertised is true. It doesn't turn off when you turn off your console if the console is still hot. I found this a very nifty feature. I think it is worth it for the old and new consoles since we know The RROD mostly happens when the console overheats i would say this product those its job.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have.... November 23, 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
First off, I have had my Xbox 360 for over 2 years now. I like many went through the RROD (Red Ring of Death) scenario (not once, not twice but 3 times). Once I got a working version, I had a helpful Best Buy employee advise me at the time to get an Intercooler for the 360. Thankfully the version I got was not the original one that melted around the plug-in. My version was the EX (the version with the metal insert). I have had to go through 2 of them in the time I have owned my 360 but let me assure you my console gets a lot of play. That being said, after my 2nd one went out recently I went to Amazon to see about purchasing a replacement. To my surprise I happened upon the Intercooler TS. Here is what I have discovered.

First off, if you have owned an Intercooler by Nyko, you will instantly see the difference. First off it is much smaller. Compared to the older versions it is about 1/4th smaller. It is still easy to install but took a little bit more shifting to put it into the holes compared to previous models. Secondly, it is clear, allowing you to see any dust or debris that might have gotten into the fans (and believe me it does). Another thing is, to me it is a bit quieter. It's not very evident but you can tell the diffence. One more vital change is that the Intercooler is now Temperature sensitive. What this means is that rather than running the whole time your 360 is on, the Intercooler lays dormant until your system heats up. Once it does, the fans kick on and proceed to cooling down your system. Lastly, and the most important change, is it comes with its own adapter. THANK YOU NYKO. You finally heard the cries of the many Intercooler owners. Up until this point the Intercooler had run on the power of the 360's power cord.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Vastly Better Upgrade Than The Previous Version October 18, 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I had already bought a cooler for my XBOX 360 when I first got after hearing about problems of it overheating and getting the RROD, but the cooler was so loud that not only did you have to increase the t.v. volume about 50% more but it sounded like you had a lawnmower in the back of the console after two months of the coolers use. My friend had bought this upgraded version and at first I was doubtful but after seeing how well it still functioned after five months I was convinced and got one myself. The biggest plus of this newer version in unlike the earlier one the console power adapter doesn't hook up though the cooler slot attachment which lead to poor power connection sometimes and actually causing temporary RROD until you replugged the power adapter cord, this cooler comes with its own ac adapter and doesn't block the consoles power slot which is actually a good thing as well since the cooler fan isn't taking power from the console either. The silence of the fan while on was incredible too after hearing that atrocious noise for so long I actually checked to see if the cooler fans were on which they were but it was so silent I had to make sure it was working after expecting to hear some loud noises from the cooler fans. So for hardcore games who play for long hours or just the casual gamer making sure that their console last a longtime here's a great addition for their system and at a very reasonable price too...

UPDATE 01-12-2011

Sadly what I first thought was a better updated version of the Nyko cooler fans turned out to be like most of the others, after about a month into using my Xbox 360 the fans from the cooler started grinding and making as much noise if not worse than the previous one I had.

The last intercooler I had was older and worked so well that I got a newer version of it. It's decent. It does not rely on the main cord. Read more

Used this for a month or so. Got very noisy. The air flow is not much more with it than without. The supports and other plastic in the way of the air flow is just dumb. Read more
