ExtremeTech has a quick heads up on a product from Nyko Technologies. A device to compete against the Pelican PL-3619 cooling device, for around the same price.
According to Nyko’s own tests, the Intercooler reduces the temperature within the 360 by between two and ten degrees Fahrenheit, depending upon the location.
The device is powered by the Xbox 360 through a pass-through cable, so no additional wiring is necessary, Nyko said. Nyko representatives weren’t available to answer questions at post time about how muc noise the fans generate.
Nyko also announced the Intelligent Remote 360 on Tuesday, another $19.99 peripheral that allows users to control the Xbox 360 — when used as a media center, not a game console — and television with the same device.
