    Hello guys!!

    I'd like to know if there is any way to get the 360 more silent??

    Yesterday i had the possibility to try out my mate's PS3, and boy, you really couldn't tell if the console was on or not since it was so quiet. Even if his console was placed on the tv-shelve just a couple meters away. My 360 is inside the tv-shelve...behind a glass, and still it's sooooo much louder than the PS3!! I'm really quite tempted to change my console to PS3 because of that feature.

    So again, anyone has some magic means to get my 360 more silent??
    Thanks.

    I wouldn't bother swapping, my Elite is silent, but my PS3 gets so loud when the fans start I have to turn the TV up.

    There are several things you can do, unfortunatly they all void the warranty.
    First off I would replace the fans with the Talisman whisper fans, there not silent but are an improvement.
    The other thing is to flash the DVD drive firmware to run at 5x speed, that makes it near silent.
    Hope this helps!

    I'm curious to know what have you done to achieve a silent Elite 360?? Because...my Elite sure isn't silent when playing a game. In fact... that PS3 I played yesterday was more silent during active dvd drive than my 360 is when only on dashboard.
