New: Talismoon Whisper Legacy + Review
http://www.360-hq.com/article3738.html

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Banish heat forever with the new Whisper Legacy. Sporting a newly designed, front mounted "Nitro Switch", the Whisper Legacy makes it easier than ever to expel unwanted heat. The Whisper Legacy continues to come with blue LED lights installed, although you can use no LEDs or switch to red or green lights (also included).

The Whisper Legacy also enjoys the status of being the "quietest rated fan" that Talismoon has ever produced thanks to the newest mechanism available, a sealed oil chamber that provides less friction than ball bearings.

Every Whisper Legacy comes with a bonus: the "Abzorber" noise vibration reduction system, in every package. To help reduce DVD drive vibration noise.

PRODUCT SPEC'S
No Ball Bearings: specially lubricated "sealed chamber" axis
Lighter impeller blades provide less resistance than earlier Whisper models
42,000 hour lifetime - nearly 5 years of continuous uptime
Interchangable Blue, Green, and Red lights included (blue lights installed)
68 CFM per fan in "Nitro Mode"
Full color instructions included
Bonus "Abzorber" vibration noise reduction system included



Thanks again from ConsoleSource for giving me a chance to review this product. Also here is the link to order these fans Click Here

Now to go on with the review Smile

Alright First the tools needed to install these fans are for only opening the case Torx 10 and a unlock tool of your choosen or Xbox 360 unlock kit that comes with everything needed and can be found HERE

The Talismoon Whisper Legacy Fan comes with these items listed below.
-The 4-pin connetor for those older xbox 360's were as the new ones use a 3pin.
-Installed are The Blue Led's but comes with Red and Green Led's too.
-Abzorber reduce airpulsing volume and dvd drive vibration.
-6 different stickers for you to put on your memory card slots
-Install Instructions come with this from taking the Xbox 360 apart to putting these fans in very nice.


I have always like Talismoon Fans and seems like they get better and better every time, took me about 10 mins to install everything the LED'S are bright specially when you push the nitro button to give it the full 12volt power. With instructions for both the Fan and the Abzorber you should not get stuck at all Thank You Talismoon for providing detailed instructions with your products.

The Nitro Button is a nice feature you just push in your memory card slot and it pushes the turbo button down in place and also you do the same to turn it off. When you do have the turbo mode in place it gives more power to the fans and pushes more air out then normally and they are a little loud kinda like doing the 12volt fan mod but it does not bother me one bit as i gamed with them on normal mode for a couple hours straight and then shut the console off let it sit for a couple hours and then gamed with the turbo mode on and did see a great difference in how cool the console was compared to the regular fan speed and the turbo mode.

Like i stated before the Talismoon Whisper Legacy Fan's come with Blue, Green, Red leds you have the option to install what color you would like, myself i left them the stock blue. You can have one fan blue one fan green or how ever you like. I wish they would of did the switch for them to change to either color on either fan for all three colors or have them go in a cool color motion between the two fans with the three different color leds, maybe this is something we will see in the future. But all in all this is still cool unlike other cooling fans they either come with one color or no color here you get to at least choose between three different colors or add your own color. Smile

I could hear my stock xbox 360 fans run louder then the Talismoon Whisper Legacy Fans on normal mode they are so much better made and does not feel cheap at all. They do use up one of your memory slots for the turbo button but who uses both memory slots or even any, any more from what we can do now with flash drives as memory support we dont need those slots no more. But for some odd reason you want to keep both open there is enough cord to route it some were else to your liken.

The Abzorber is used to help quite your dvd drive down i followed the instructions on this as they come with them Smile and i did see a reduce in noise from my dvd drive. The thing you want to do when installing this is when it comes to the sides that you put on, put them on the top and have it slide in with the dvd drive other wise the will slide down and out once you get the dvd drive in place but after you get that in place its all good and you should notice the difference specially if you are not the person that uses your hard drive to play your games off of.

The Memory Slot Stickers these are cool kinda reminds me of all the ones i have on my PC but now i have some on my Xbox 360 Memory Slots Smile they come with 6 different style stickers you can add them if you like or not either way cool idea.

The packaging is perfect on these fans i dont think one person will get a broken fan as they are nicely packaged.

Thanks again ConsoleSource for letting me review the Talismoon Whisper Legacy Fan, i would recommend anyone out there looking to upgrade there fans to go with these or if your looking for other parts or cases or anything else you need the name says it all they are the source for what your console needs. They also have great support and also fast shipping.

Here is some pics of me installing the Whisper Legacy Fans and also some pics of it running Smile

Hi mate,

Great review scar.. Sound like i need to get me some of these bad boys.. I like how you have the switch in the memory card slot, cool idea.. You really don't need to memory cards anymore..

The leds work great on talismoons, i used to run the older ones but now ill be getting some of these for sure..

Any chance you could write up a small tutorial for some of the newbs out there?? Looks like you have most of the pics already taken you could just write up a small step guide.

anyway, two thumbs up. Console Source are nice guys for sending out the review sample too.

l8r all,

hobbs

They are great fans like i said the nitro/turbo mode is loud but does help out when you are gaming for long periods of time. When in normal mode still runs faster then the xbox ones and quieter for sure. Like i said i would recommend them for anyone buying new cooling fans.



Yea hobbs i have to get some battery's for the camera and ill do a step by step guide in taking apart the xbox 360 and all that Smile

Sounds like just what my xbox needs since the desk fan pointing at the side of my 360 is getting a bit loud and old. Very Happy

whats nice about this fan also is that say i am playing for a couple hours and i am about ready to get off. i hit the nitro switch and leave it run for about 5mins by this time all the hot air has made its way out and i shut it off. Really sick fans again they are loud in this mode but they do push some freaking heat out.
