New xbox S running hot

  • Level   1

Hello,

          Wonder if anyone can help me. I just replaced an elite Jasper chip set 360 with one of the shiny black quiet 360's. Did the transfer cable job and away i go... all is well (and very quiet) but I notice the new unit is HOT to the touch. I always ran my elite with an intercooler so I guess I am used to a cool running 360 but this new one is VERY HOT... is this something I should be concerned about or do they all run hot?

Many thanks in anticipation of your answer and opinions

    They all run hot. Just make sure your Xbox is not in a small place where you place it at. Also never leave your Xbox running for long period of time so it doesn't overheat for inactivity. But you can set your Xbox 360 off when your not using it.

    Go to your Console settings and select Startup and Shutdown. After set Auto-Off enabled.

    Also you can install games onto your hard drive as this will reduce the heat as well as make the Xbox quieter.
