5.0 out of 5 stars This actually works! But not mandatory, August 6, 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars

This review is from: Nyko Intercooler STS for Xbox 360 Slim (Video Game)
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.

A temp drop of 10* is amazing concerning electrical devices. It makes me wonder why microsoft didn't go for a better fan inside.
