    Ok, now many warranties are expired, I wondered what experiences anyone has with making the beast quieter?

    I've seen a couple of ads for quieter fans, but wanted opinions here first.

    There was a thread about this a while back, but hopefully more people have done it now, and there may be more options.

    What you bin doin people?

    took the xbox apart and disconnected the fans then run a game on it,there is not much difference in my opinion,the drive is the problem that needs to be made quieter.

    Oh, I know it's the drive that's the primary source, but the fans do add to it, and if I can make it quieter... all the better!
    Plus, I can hear mine quite easily when at the dashboard or using it as a dvd player...
    And I would like to add the HD unit too, but would like to do anything I can to ease the noise first!
