I'm eventually going to mod my 360 Elite case with one of these window designs. I still havn't decided what to use for the window. I'm looking for more options, probably plexi. I'll also be adding LEDs or cathodes, a clear DVD drive case, temp monitoring with display, one of those glossy airflow vents, and face mounted extra air in / out fans. I'm also looking to possibly do some vent modifications. Any advice on cooling, fan mounting, or airflow would be appreciated. Here's some ideas I've been working on. I used the simple ms paint tool to do these pictures:








Which one is your favorite?

I've been leaning towards the fourth one and the last one myself. I will go with whatever design that gets the most votes. Looks like the first one and the last one are the most popular as of now, with the last one leading by 1 vote. It will be quite a while before I do this mod, so there will be plenty of time for people to voice additional opinions. I have to wait to make sure this box is going to be reliable enough to mod. I've only had it about a month now.

As far as ventillation and airflow is concerned the 360 is lacking in my opinion. The air it pushes out the vents and back is quite hot. The console operates at a high temperature and I would like to significantly decrease it. I will also be adding some dynimat to the inside of the case to quiet down that 12V switching stock fan. The only way to figure out the best locations for the fans would be to open the case and take a peek at the board to see where the GPU and CPU chips are located.

What I need to know is if face mounted inlet / outlet fans are plausable in this scenario. The stock fans are located at the back of the console. If I mount an inlet above the GPU / CPU chips and an outlet on the opposite side of the case will it provide an adequate difference in cooling?
