Noisy Xbox

Not strictly a pc question granted, but are there any ways to quieten the Xbox without taking a hammer to it?
If i'd known it was going to sound like a hairdryer, I would never have bought the 360 for my son at Christmas. It was supposed to be for the whole family to use really, but the noise has us all reaching for the Hedex, so my son has now got it in his room on his tiny tv :-( Seems like I wasted £200?

Never saw one but a quick google suggests noise can be a problem:

My other half has banished mine to the bedroom, no easy way round this without generating heat by closing it in a cabinet/cupbaord.

Be wary of poking around inside, especially as it is new.

Turn the TV up to drown out the sound?

It depends if you want to open it up or not.

if your xb0x 360 has a hard drive try installing games to that as some of the noise is from the disc drive i found this to work.
