  • I remember once I played my Xbox one s for 10+ hours, it was fine. Considering that was the Xbox one s, I am 100% sure the Xbox Series X should be much better.

  • Mine overheats after 10 minutes of playing dont buy it

  • I would say it defo does when not in the upright position. Also depends on ventilation but heat rises so I think that’s the way it should be used. I did a short video demo of it.

  • i own one and it does need better fan ramping when in heavy usage. im a computer gamer and tbh i would be more comfortable if the fan was a bit more louder and it ran a bit more cooler

  • If you have an Xbox still turn it off eventually it can overheat I got my Xbox project Lockhart I turn it off to prevent overheating

  • The small space between the bottom of the console and the surface it is sitting on does not allow the intake to function properly causing heat to not be transferred as it should. Laying it sideways and playing 2K21 for several hours I had no issues. The 1st time I sat it vertically playing 2K21 it shut down on me. I felt it and it was extremely hot. My take is that it needs that bottom stand piece in vertical position needs to be a 1/2 inch or so thicker to allow cool air to pass through the system. Just my opinion and experience. I will be modifying mine because I like the vertical look. Anyone else having the same issue?

  • Note to all xbox series x owners: If your done using your Console 1) unplug your Console 2) place a glasses cloth on top of the vent 3) Always keep you xbox SX standing Up. 4) make sure your room temperature is cool and you xbox isn't near any heat, such as lamps, other Consoles 5) I CANT EMPHASIZE THIS ENOUGH, GIVE YOUR CONSOLE ROOM TO BREATHE. NO SHELVES, NO UNDER A TABLE. KEEP IT ON HIGH GROUNDS WITH LOTS OF ROOM. Why you ask? It preserves the life spans of the Console, and protects the components within the hardware from dust accumulation that causes the console to burn up faster which leads up to problems.

  • A very simple test will explain.... Run your xbox without the internet connected . Run your xbox with the internet connected. Don't play anything just let it run without switching off. You will be amazed that running with the internet connected, and nothing else, causes the xbox to heat up... Why.? There is the answer...

PlayStation became GayStation when they decided to make a newer console with less memory than the previous console.
