    The best way to keep your 360 cool in my opinion is to not use the DVD drive to run your games from. Run your games off the hard drive instead and you'll notice a big difference.

    Are you using the NXE version of the dashboard or the old one? You can only do it with the NXE. The box where you load the game instead of hitting A (green) hit Y (yellow) and it'll bring up an option to install it to hard drive.

    Considering you have the NXE dashboard, insert your disc once loaded press "Y" the game information will show, there is a option from there you can chose to install the game to the HDD

    Note: You still need the DVD in the Drive even if you play off the HDD

    As for the topic, the 360 will inevitably heat up and eventually die. TO be honest the problem is when the thing cools down, so basically there is nothing much you could do. Best course of action is to keep it well ventilated and make sure to keep that darn dust away.

    EDIT: Seems TrollyDave is a faster typer than me [​IMG]
