    For the current generation of gaming consoles, the Xbox 360 has several reputations. On the positive side, the Xbox 360 is the undisputed leader of online service and multiplayer, but on the negative side, it also holds a track record of being fairly unreliable.

    At one point, up to one-third of all Xbox 360 consoles experienced the hardware failure popularly known as the Red Ring of Death, which rendered the console unusable.

    I think he's making a very risky move there, The claim anyway, the new cooling should make the 360 even more popular though.

    Well i had 2 360's fail and am now on my 3rd one.

    I do have to say that being on my 3rd with the new cooling I think they got it right this time and should have no longer any problems with it!

    I am just hope thats the case but it runs so much cooler, it's not as loud and I am very happy.

    the best cooling is water cooling. a guy named NuclearWinter here on the forums modded his 360 a while ago to be water cooled. that thing was awesome :).

    Well lets hope so...

    I'm only waiting for them to release a stable version with the 65nm gpu and I personally know around 6 people who also are waiting for this.
