Loud Xbox One X

So a few days ago out of nowhere my One X fan started getting pretty loud. I can sometimes even hear it on the dashboard. I clean the exterior pretty often and have plenty of room for it to breathe. Any ideas why it’s doing this?

Definitely doesn't sound normal, as they're usually very quiet. Could be something as simple as dust buildup (accumulates more than you'd think), or the thermal paste could need replacing. Either way, the only way to find out would be to open it up.

Mine did the same last year. Always keep clean, or I thought. Took it to a local cleaner and look like a cat crawled in it. After that, quiet as a mouse.
