We haven’t heard about too many heat issues with the new slim Xbox 360, but for those who run the console 24/7 it may be worth looking into a cooling system. Nyko just recently announced their Intercooler STS system made exclusively for the slim Xbox. Thankfully, the system is smart and only runs when it needs to, keeping noise levels down. Power comes from USB and it looks like the unit blends nicely with the Xbox.
Price is $19.99, available now.
Number one third-party console accessories manufacturer Nyko Technologies® today announced the launch of the Intercooler STS, the brand new cooling system for the Xbox 360 Slim. Utilizing Nyko’s cutting edge TempSmart™ technology to keep the console running at an optimal temperature, the Intercooler STS increases airflow away from the Xbox 360. This allows the console to perform in a cooler, better ventilated environment; ideal for cramped entertainment centers. The Intercooler STS has an MSRP of $19.99 and is available in stores and online now.
The Intercooler STS requires no internal modification of the console, and blends seamlessly with the sleek aesthetics of the redesigned Xbox 360. Nyko’s TempSmart technology automatically powers on the Intercooler’s fans when needed, and continues to cool the console even after the system has been powered down, until an ideal ambient temperature has been reached. The device is powered via USB port, requiring no batteries or AC adapters and providing a clean and easy installation. The slick new “scoop” design blends seamlessly with the design of the Xbox 360 S console and works in both the horizontal and vertical positions.
Intercooler STS features:
Fan Cooling System – Significantly increase the airflow away from the console providing an optimal environment for the Xbox 360 S.
TempSmart Technology – Temperature sensing technology automatically powers the cooling fans on and off as needed.
Easy Installation – Easily snaps onto the main vent of the console. No tools or internal modification needed.
Universal – Works with the console in vertical or horizontal position and fits easily into entertainment centers.
“The design of the Intercooler STS was inspired by the contours and hood scoops of 1950’s muscle cars and happens to fit the form factor and aesthetic of the new Xbox 360 Slim perfectly,” said Chris Arbogast, director of marketing, Nyko Technologies. “We’re pleased to provide a cooling solution for the redesigned Xbox 360 that will improve air circulation in any environment from a dorm room to a high end home theater.”
The Intercooler STS is black and chrome to match the Xbox 360 S, and is available for an MSRP of $19.99.
