Default Would buying Xbox 360 hard drive reduce heat?

My 360 gets really hot, and I haven't bought a fan yet, but was also wondering if buying a hard drive would reduce the heat or work it's doing. The disk gets really loud to. Mine didn't come with a hard drive

It's possible, but it would have to be a low-power hard drive and it certainly would do very little to help. Most of the heat produced by an Xbox 360 (And other desktops and laptops) is coming from the CPU and the graphics.

Better to just get a fan and move the Xbox to somewhere where heat dissipation would not be an issue such as an open space and having it sit on linoleum, hardwood, tiles or on a desk rather than having it sit on carpet.

Watch a video on taking apart the case. I have the old style xbox and when I ripped that case open I was shocked on how much dust was in there.
