    I dig the idea of the color changes to note the temperature of the console. I’d like it better if just the original frontal lightup does that though.

    The thing is, my Wii doesn’t actually heat up. I don’t know the point of all this ‘cooling’ crap.

    That’s ****ing awesome.
    I’m sure there’s a version where you control the colors by yourself.

    What is with all these cooling and heat syncs? I Wii is always on standby and I usually play it a lot when I do. Has anyone even heard of a report of the system overheating? I would understand something like this for the PS3.

    It probably just over heats after you put the Led’s all over it and you have to power the Led’s up through the same wire that is powering up your wii…..

    I just bought one of these. The temp is always between 47 and 51 and never changes so i really only get to see the one color. Is there anyway to cool it down more
