Hey guys i'm not new to the forums but they closed my account since i haven't gone on here for about a year. Now i recently bought a new 360 to replace my old one so i bought an Elite. My Elite has the 65nm cpu inside. Thus i have at new power supply. I was just curious if it is okay to use my old power supply with my new Elite. I'm sure it's okay but i'm just makeing sure because i believe some of you might no more than i do about this.

Thank You

why would you not use to the new one? thats the better question

I would be very cautions about doing that, as the elite uses less power I'm not to sure if a standard power brick will restrict the voltage.

I wouldn't risk it, no. Your old power supply puts out 203w and the new one 175w. I wouldn't

well two reasons. first this new one has this really high picthed noise everytime it's on standby and second you can't use the intercooler with the new power supply. and yes i know you guys might be saying well it's 65nm it's cooler... i like being safe than sorry.

As you can see the prongs are different.

i know i ment to use the old power brick and the old cable together and pulg that into the elite. mainly becuase of the intercooler. and the high pichted noise in my pervious post. very good picture by the way.

If your getting a high pitched noise, I suggest you ring M$ and get it replaced.

oh i already did. but i'm starting to get tired of talking to a half english speaking hindu. all he did was tell me to exchange it at the store. by which the exchange policy day is over due. and also another question. it there any way of transfering my extended warranty from my premium to my elite. ( the hindu guys couldn't help me with that either)

Its M$'s problem not the store. Ask to speak to his manager, you should not get fobed off like that.

first call was with an american fellow who said i had to unplug my console every time i'm done playing because of the fans that are still running to cool the console and power brick. second call was with a hindu woman named cindy. (like thats real) she hung up on me half way through. i'll make a thrid call later tonight and see what happens. i'm keeping my fingers crossed. i think on the thrid call i'm going to just demand a replacement for the power supply.
