I was just digging through my stuff and I found a Papst 412H fan. is 40mm x 20mm with five fan blades. You can search it and itll be on the Papst website. How is that for moving air in an xbox? And with a Xenon, would it be best to put it on the bottom of the console, or next to the CPU heatsink? I checked that it fits fine in those spots already.

EDIT: The CFM is 6.0. I don't know how that compares to other fans though...

6 cfm is pretty average for a 40mm. since you have a xenon the fan would work best in front of the cpu.

Yea I figured it'd be better there. Has anyone tried mounting it under the fan shroud pulling air? That might save me some space for and idea I have.

By shroud you mean the fan duct? If so then I havn't heard of anyone doing that before, and that is actually a different...if not really smart idea. I think that would get a bit more air moving for sure.

Yeah that is what I meant. I'll have to see if I get better airflow doing that than blowing on the other side.
