AfterCooler360

The AfterCooler360 is a small board that is installed in your Xbox 360 to help cool your GPU and CPU after your console is turned off. Everyone knows that when the console is running it generates heat. But what about when you turn it off? The chips stop generating heat, but the heat already in them has nowhere to go! This is not a good situation because when the heat can't escape, it stays in the chips. Some people leave their Xbox 360 running at the dashboard for a few minutes when they are done playing to give the chips a chance to cool off, but we figured there should be a better way to solve this problem.
The solution:

The AfterCooler360, pictured with a 9V battery for reference
(just over 1 square inch!). The AfterCooler360 can be installed by anyone with beginner soldering skills and the tools to open the Xbox 360. There are four wires to be soldered: +5V, Ground, +12V, and the Fan power line (there is a fifth optional wire if you have a power source of your own for the fans). The result: your fans are run at 5V for any amount of time between 30sec and 5min (chosen when you order) and the excess heat is gradually removed from your heatsinks and chips. This eases the temperature spike that would normally occur when you turn off your Xbox 360.

This version is the final prototype of the v1.x line and quantities are very limited. The next version (v2.x) will be released exclusively through the CorpseTech store in several weeks. Version 2 will have a fan connector on board and a fan cable attached so all you have to do is solder two wires, plug in your fans, and it's ready to go!

Fully assembled AfterCooler360, ready to be installed: $15 This is an introductory price for the protoypes only!

Shipping to the US: $5
Shipping elsewhere: Ask for details.
PayPal is the only form of payment accepted, PM or post here if interested!

Thanks to Deary65 and SR2K at MonsterXMods.com for their support in the development of the AfterCooler360!

Yes, it will work with any fan that is compatible with the 360.
Do you have your talismoon in place with a resistor?

Like Deary said, it works with any fan as long as the total load is under 2A. Works with anything really (LEDs, etc) but not sure why you'd want that Smile
You can install a potentiometer in place of the timing resistor to have a variable time, yes.
