Re: xbox 360 intercooler
I have 2 360's (1 core and 1 premium) and have the intercooler on the premium....after measuring the heat output it is reduced moderately. I would only recommend getting the intercooler if you are having heat issues with your 360 or it is in a small not well ventilated area.
Hope this helps.

Take the intercooler off. It draws power from the console which inturn creates more heat. You need to put in a Whisper Tailsmoon fan. If you are getting the red rings, you will probably need it to be professionally reflow or put the x-clamp fix in as a DIY solution.
as soon as your console reaches a certain temp it over heats go pick up a ts intercooler from nyco when your console gets to hot this intercooler has a sensor built into it so it will know when to turn on very economical on power and your wallet 19.99 most game stores
Don't use a intercooler they will bugger your Xbox 360 for sure. From what you said you have your console where it can get plenty of air, this is important as the RROD is caused by overheating.
As for your problem, try unplugging the unit and removing the HDD, put the HDD back on and plug it all back in again.
If this fails, since the unit is only 5 months old call Microsoft, their phone numbers are on the xbox.com web site, they will pay for the product to be returned, and when you get it back it will be as good as new.
2 lights mean that the console is overheating. Intercoolers usually lead to future problems such as hardware failure so I wouldnt reccomend it. I would put the console in an open, well ventilated room such as a living or family room.
Nikko makes the intercooler, a cooler for the xbox. but i have heard stories about them overheating themselves, another company called titan makes the so-called xfan, a silent cooler for the xbox, however, i don't know where to get it,
