    Have noticed that FSD was reporting that my CPU temp was 70c and GPU 68c when i quit out of playing a game for about an hour!. Obviously before i had my RGH console i had no idea what the temps where for the 360, do these seem high? i have the fan setting left on Auto, but haven't heard it speed up at all???

    I have a Slim Trinity360 btw.

    I can't remember what the temps on my console is, but my fan setting is set at 65%.
    I'll check tomorrow and let u know.
    but I do know that its definitely not that high.

    So are the temps supposed to be hotter when in RGH mode?, as obviously when im in LIVE mode (dual nand) the fan settings cant be change?

    Ambient temps in my room are 22c

    Thanks for the info, having the fan set at 65% is quiet audible though isn't it? I'm running FSD currently, and change the Fan settings through that, is it actually FSD that controls the speed of the fan? as I'm thinking of just using the normal MS dash instead, if I was to do that how would I have control over the fan?

    Any ideas what the ambient temp of the room where your 360 is in is? Are there more advance temp controls that can be used, for instance having the fan speed up to 65% when the temp reaches say 60c??. I wonder if RGH causes the system to run hotter when playing a game?, I should see how it would!

    if the fan is set at 65%, it is a bit audible.
    I think there's a setting in dash launch (the xex file) that can control when the fan switches on. (I stand to be corrected on that)
    Not sure what my room temp is.

    I'm sure some of the more experienced forum members will be able to help though. (Sorry I can't be of any more help)

    Yeah ive just downloaded the latest release of Dash Launch, and it does indeed have a temp target option so that helps a little.

    Im not sure why the temps would be high when playing a game whin in RGH mode than if playing the same xbox in normal retail mode, unless it runs more processes when the game is being played like if FSD is still running etc? That said i guess there in no way to see what the temps are for a bog standard 360!?

    Going back to the fan settings and system temps for retail nand mode (no control over fan speed) i thought of a way to find out what temp the system got upto in this mode. Basically in retail nand mode play a game for a while then turn the system off, switch to RGH nand and power on the console again as soon as the system boots hold down the Home Button and see what the system temps are (must have the 'Shut down temp' option enabled in dashlaunch). From turning my system off and then waiting for it to boot into RGH mode (roughtly 15 seconds) my system temps were as follows:

    CPU 66c
    GPU 62c
    Mem 59c

    obviously these had probably cool down slightly whilst the system was glitching into RGH mode and the fan was going crazy so can probably add a few more c to these figures.

    I cant even hear my fan at all when in retail nand mode even after 4 hours consecutive gameplay (probably set lower than 40% speed) so Microsoft CPU, GPU and MEM heat tolerance threshold must be very high so one would think these temps must be in MS safety parameters!?. Begs the question why do so users have their fans set to 60%+ this must be overkill surely not to mention how loud it would be???, i think setting the fan speed to 45% is more than enough as this would be faster than what MS officially set the fan speed at

    A lot of people have old Xenon Jtags, which are like ticking time bombs. To try and keep the consoles a bit cooler they crank the fan speeds right up to 100%

    Personally on my Jasper Jtag i leave them as default and the console has been fine for years now and is pretty quiet (couldn't tell you the temps off the top of my head).

    As you have a Slim you shouldn't need to worry about them at all, Slims are so reliable compared to the older Xenon 360's. You have done some research in to it and found your console is fine when in retail mode, so i see no need to make it sound like a jumbo jet when been used as an RGH console, its not any more demanding than when the console plays a game in its retail state.

    Hi not trying to hijack the thread, but I had a similar question. I have a jtag console (all the "hard" work was done by someone I was friendly with online and who used to do this stuff for a living but has now retired and vanished off the net) that has a couple of quarky issues, but I will stay focused on the fan one here. Since the day it arrived it has always blown out at 100% and while this normally isn't an issue for me as I normally use headphones, it's starting to become a problem with my new setup. I've flashed the NAND a few times (I just followed InsaneNutter's guild and upgraded to 14699 before noticing that there was another newer major release out there =p) and was wondering if anyone knew of a way to get it to act like a stock Xbox 360 (aka increase and decrease in speed as needed)? I noticed the comments above about dashlaunch (I'm using an outdated version and should upgrade anyway) but is this the only solution we have for now?

    Edit: Okay this makes no sense to me... I just finished flashing and now the fan works perfectly with auto (I can heard it rev up a bit at times but the rain outside my window is way louder than the fan). I have not yet fixed the dashboard by installing the official update yet or update dashlaunch so that FSD 3 is the first thing to launch, but maybe the problem just fixed itself? Or is dashlaunch to blame? Personally I don't mind going into "My Games", launching Viper360 and then loading FSD 3 if I get a working fan system.

    With Dashlaunch 3.03 you can configure the fan speed in there, what ever settings you choose will be applied when the console boots.

    As always mines just set to auto, however you could set the fans to say 40% or what ever value you wish.

    If Dashlaunch does not make a difference with your issue it could be that the guy who did yours ahs put the 12v fan mod in .. makes it real cool but VERY noisy
