    A fan next to it, if you have a fan.

    Overheating can't be "fixed" without "monetary input". Thermal grease, thermal glue or copper shims cost money, y'see. :P

    The best you can do is store the console in a cooler place, make sure that the fans are clean and rotating fine and that there's enough space for the intake/exhaust, and you should be doing that already anyways.

    I remember a friend of mine had this old mini fridge that was broken, it only got down to about 60°F so he stored his 360 and his PS3 in there lol.

    Set the fans to 100% if you haven't done that already.
    Stick some extra fans to the 360 if you haven't done that already.

    Xenons are always overheating so you're basically trying to put a forest fire out with a squirtgun.

    Sometimes putting a fan next to electrical equipment that produces heat can be a bad thing, It can interrupt the airflow or even blow hot air back into the system. I'm not sure if it will have a negative effect for the 360 though,
