    I took a look at my 360, and saw the case was pretty filthy. So grabbed some cloths, some bleach, and got to work. After a good scrubbing, it looks like it did out of the box. Then I decided to go the full mile, and grabbed some compressed air. To clean out the inside components. The whole thing now runs a lot smoother. I also see a difference in Temperatures in FSD. Question is; How often do you clean out your 360?

    Here are a few pictures of mine, because I felt like posting some. ^_^ I'm also thinking about doing a case mod. Any suggestions?.. (Or places to buy premade ones?)

    Pretty nice temps Dev!
    My Falcon runs at about the same temps.

    I clean it whenever I update the DVD drive to the latest hacked FW.

    Falcon with the Fan mod + fangrill.
    I also have cut out the back fanmesh for extra airflow and I'm wanting to put heatsinks on the RAM chips.

    I don't really bother to clean mine too much. Wipe the surface dust of it when I notice it and clean the 120mm fan grill/filter when I can be bothered (have 120mm intake instead of dvd). Apart from that I leave it alone, I keep close eye on my temps though, so if I notice any significant increases, then it'll get opened and cleaned properly.

    I used to give it a blast of compressed air every time I opened it up to reflash it. Since I got my slim though it's never been opened.
    Kinda miss getting games the second they hit the net but at the same time I like buying them as I play each one through before starting the next.
