hey guys, I called Microsoft and asked them what they recommend to avoid the dreaded overheating problem. lol, I just know with my luck after I paid for it to be modded and waited 2 weeks for it, that something like that would happen to mine. I told the dude that I sat mine vertically like 6 inches from my DVD recorder and he said that was very bad and should be at least a foot away from other electronics. He said horizontal positioning works better with the lens. I asked him about the intercoolers and he of course said they didn't work and could really mess up your 360. The rep recommended buying a desk fan and blowing that into the 360, said that should help and was a good idea.
