Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
It looks like by Fitting this Homebrew Fan and switching the power on that you have potentially shorted the systems Motherboard. this will render it unworkable as is in your case. unfortunately for you now, because you have modified the Xbox 360s hardware, your warranty with microsoft is Voided meaning you will have to purchase a new Xbox.
Instead of resorting to fitting Extra pieces of hardware Yourself,i suggest follow these steps :
1) do not put Xbox 360s in small confined spaces such as TV Cabinets and cupboards, this decreases the Cooling capabilities of the Xbox System Dramatically which will eventually lead to an Over heat and potentially damaged CPU and/or GPU (RRoD). Make sure the Xbox console has a lot of empty space around it, Free from other electrical appliances which will give it the fresh cool air it requires to keep the core temperatures down.
2) buy a very small desk fan and have it blowing a very slight breeze onto the back of the Xbox Console. do not have the fan turned up too high or Pointing Directly into the back of the console, as this can sometimes wear down the Bearings on the fans which will eventually cause them to break.
3) the final solution would be to Look into purchasing a 3rd Party Fan Attachment, these fans don't alter the hardware within the system, meaning they are still within warranty. and generally provide cooler running temperatures for your console. one example of an attachment would be the Nyko Intercooler (google it).
Hopefully this solves your problem. sorry to hear that you may need a new console !
