My xbox is getting very hot and loud

I have heard that used the smaller part of the hoover/vacuum can remove dust from the inside and fix this problem. I am worried this will damage the internals e.g warp the motherboard or something. I have the original xbox one by the way. Thanks.



Then you’re doing the right thing! Good job keeping her happy.

Oh crap, sorry I thought you were talking about your xgirlfriend. My bad.

I was having the same problem. I didn’t completely open it up, but I did take off the two side vents and remove clumps of dust. Now it never overheats and runs like the day I bought it. Can’t recommend it enough.

Open it up. Use a compressed air can to blow the dust away. Don't put the nozzle too close though.

I am not really comfortable doing that but thank you.

Well then don't open it up but only do it through the air vents.

I do not have compressed air and cannot get it rn. So will the hoover work? Or break it thank you

It won't break it. It will work. Put it on medium setting.
