My 360 is about as loud as a lawnmower, or a vacuum sucking up scraps of metal. But all that could change.
Talismoon is releasing a fan for your 360 that will both cool it enough to stave off the Red Ring of Death and allow you to use your media extender to enjoy the subtle tones of The Shins without the sound of a Harrier Jump-Jet taking off in the background.
Yeah, installing it voids your warranty, but be a man for once and fix your fan...or be sensible and don't void your warranty. It's up to you.

- Nitro Mode – In the flick of a switch, the Whisper Max fan can run with up to 240% more power. Without a doubt, all users will experience very significant cooling using the Nitro mode. This mode is ideal for long gaming sessions. Moreover, those who wish to have a quieter experience for watching a movie or conducting other less intensive tasks can just switch back to the original mode. This will provide more than adequate cooling and greater noise reduction.
- Quality – The Whisper Max is a ball bearing fan providing a quieter and longer life. This construction provides advantages over sleeve bearing based fans which can potentially wear out sooner and become noisier as they age.
- Lighting – Not only will the Xbox 360 become physically much cooler with the Whisper Max, but will actually aesthetically look very cool too. When the Whisper Max installed, the user can select between blue, green or red lights or opt not to select any at all. Moreover, if all the mentioned colours are a bit too common, users could in future use just about any other LED including white, UV, orange or anything which captures their imagination.
Essentially, the Whisper Max is a direct replacement fan for the Xbox 360 which offers far superior (refer to internal CPU, GPU test graph) and reliable cooling with a touch of aesthetic class. The whole package includes everything you need (even includes 2 small heatsinks to help lower the overall temperature) and is fully compatible with the original Xbox 360 and Xbox 360 Elite.
