I still can't decide whether or not to mount the 4 fans on the side of Xbox (2 either side). There are 3 things that bug me about it:

1. The increased noise 4 externally mounted fans would make.
2. The look of the Xbox with the fans mounted (given I have the Xbox-HQ skin on my box)
3. How to power all the fans without making major changes to the box's power supply.

Does anyone have an example of such a box, I'd love to hear from you, post pics etc.

I got pics all over the place of mine running 2 80mm fans on the left hand side but i have not seen any running 4, i wold say it wold make a good bit of noise.

But thats nothing to since i spend all my time working on PCs and such, its got to the point whare if i dont hear the fans running i think something has went wrong. LOL

See the noise wouldn't bother me too much, just turn the volume on the tv up! lol Very Happy
Its more the styling of the thing that worries me. I'm a big stickler for aesthetics and I'd want the box to look good. Would be ideal if anyone has a pic of a box running 4 fans, 2 either side so I can have a look.

Sure thing man, this pic was in my photobucket so if you want a more head on shot let me know but this one gives you the ugly angle so you can see it at its worst.
The wires at the top can be moved to the bottem to hide them more, im just lazy and aint done it. LOL

I supposae its not too bad really. The side of my case is still black, so the fans should match colour wise without any probs.

Decisions, decisions! Very Happy

I dont think it looks bad at all and with yours being black stock 80mm case fans wold work and be a nice cheap way to keep it cool.

As long as it doesn't clash too much with the skin and I can find some way to power them all, I may well go for it.

Ifind it best to wire the black wire from the fan to the black wire going to your hdd.
