Hi guys,

I have had an xbox slim for about a week now and I have noticed that the xbox gets very hot over the fan on the top of the xbox. I have my xbox vertical and most of the xbox is cool but the fan on top is Hot - Nearly hot to touch. I have the gloss version.

Now, I'm thinking this is a good thing because it means it's getting rid of all the heat in the xbox and releasing it through the vent but I may be wrong. I'm getting a bit worried because my friend said he has the exact same model and his is blowing out cool air. My room is pretty small and it gets very hot in it so maybe that is the problem?

Sorry I'm not sure if this is the right forum to post this on. I posted it on a couple of other websites aswell

Thanks alot!

EDIT: Forgot to say that the xbox is in a open area on my desk

Needs more air circulation.

Open some windows.

Get some fans.


Don't block the vent.

I would contact microsoft. I have several friends that have the new model and none of them get hot at all.

its dependant on the size of your room. No matter what electronical device it is, if its concealed in a small room its going to heat it up. Maybe use it in another room ?

Alright I just sent an email to them. I have just been looking and apparently it is good because it's getting rid of all the heat inside the xbox and it's suppose to me normal. Anyway, hopefully microsoft will get back to me soon

I highly doubt that.

Judging from how long it takes them to "repair" your RRoD or broken xbox you might be waiting awhile. Microsoft isnt a very consumer friendly company

Yes I was thinking that but all the other rooms in the house are being used for different things so it isn't possible to move to a different room. I may switch my room around so my xbox is by my window and so will have more air circulation.

^ yeah i think it might be the room if it is small. I have a brand new laptop and it heats up my room at times. But at my desk in the hallway its perfect. Thing just needs some breathing room man

Alright I'll try and do something about it. Would a fan desk help at all or will that just blow the already hot air around the room faster?!

I actually have a newer model and they can get pretty hot. I lay mine down, and like you it only gets hot around the vents. I would just keep it well circulated, and try not to have it on for extended periods of time longer than 4 hours or so. As long as its not making loud noises or your seeing changes in performance I wouldn't worry about anything.

No reason to take it back now.

Another problems sometimes happens is the xbox will start making like a buzzing sound but as soon as I push the top of it it goes very quiet and stays like that for a while. It isn't an insanely loud buzz but you can notice it.

Get your xbox back and get a new one... It's not supposed to overheat like that and it's not supposed to make noise...

At least that's what the microsoft rep told me when I had similar problem !
Yeah i'm working at Eb games dont judge me...

Easily. It's only been a week. Hope you kept the receipt.
G(g)od was like: "Make you an ark of gopher wood; rooms shall you make in the ark, and shall pitch it within and without with pitch."

And i was like: "What's gopher wood?"

Unfortunately I can't take it back because I bought it from Argos when there was a deal one and apparently it is excluded from their 30 day returns but isn't it a law to offer 1 or 2 years warranty on all electrical items?

I think I have the same problem with mine. I have had mine since Feb. and I have ran into no problems whatsoever so I think you'll be completely fine. I keep my horizontal instead of vertical though, but I doubt that has anything to do with it to be honest.

Hmm many people saying different things. Anyway most seem to be saying it is normal and good it is emmitting heat and I have e-mailed argos asking about an exchange and microsoft asking if it is normal
