Ok so i got the XCM core cooler V2 and i must say im very pleased with it. it dosent sound like a jet taking off in you living room its actually quiet and you can feel that there is more air coming out of the back of the xbox. after about 2 jours of game play the air was warm but not a hot as it usually is. all around i would give it a 8 out of 10 only because it focuses mainly on the CPU witch we know isn't the main problem for overheating, i also cut a circle above the Fan and installed a grill over it to allow more of the cool air outside the case to get in.

How did it fit with the extra heat sink in it? The V1 XCM core cooler I have doesn't fit with the extra heat sink.

They made it to accommodate both consoles. It looks like it fits fine in both. Here is installation instructions for the new ones

Just wanted to tell you that is some very nice work there. Looks very good and clean. I can't tell you how many guys I have seen post pictures on here of thier mod and you can tell the inside is dusty as hell. Why would anyone spend that much time on a mod and not clean the dust out of the system? Confused Anyhow kudo's to you for making it look nice and clean! Very Happy
