My xk3y has taken away the need for a noisy disc drive, but my rear fans are still very loud.
I want to remove my xbox 360 fans and replace them with quieter fans like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W90oIQTu5wI
But I would also like to have them be temperature controlled via micro controller in a similar fashion to this: http://alan-parekh.com/projects/pwm-fan-controller/
(with temperature control the xbox will be quieter at dash/netflix and louder during games rather than just loud all the time)
I have a few questions:
1. If I follow the procedure of the second link will I be able to program a pic chip with my avr dragon (all I have right now)?
2. The programming should be relatively simple correct?
3. Will I be able to power the fan controller from somewhere on board or will I have to run a light to power outside of the xbox?
4. Do you see any major problems with the general idea of this project?
Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.
