Replace Xbox 360 fans with monster fans?

Hello TH community,

I'm thinking about replacing the Deltas that came stock with the 360 elite with something that blows more air. I play with a surround system on, so noise isn't a problem.

I was thinking of a pair of this fan:

What do you guys think? I'm considering this project because I suffered a RROD once, and I don't want to go back to that again. Plus, even before the incident I noticed that the 360 gets mad hot.

I've done a bit more reading, and have decided to take a different route.

Instead of simply replacing the Deltas, I'm thinking of simply modding the case so that they become intake fans instead of exhaust.

Then, I would mod the case in order to add another fan near the CPU heatsink and GPU heatsink extension to act as an exhaust fan.

I think this would be a much better cooling plan without too much effort. Thoughts?
