Series X sound and heat?

by Vaultboy474. Posted on Oct 24, 2020    0    25


Ok so I’m pretty sold on the Xbox series x but I’m concerned it’s gonna be loud when playing high intensity games and it’s gonna produce some heat, what do ppl know/think? Also is there anything to be called for concern overall or?

Multiple reports say you can't even hear it running. It produces around 30% more heat than the one x. It will vent 140 degree air out of the top. Perfectly normal.

Alright

All proof with data analytics around the web now says it runs much cooler than the One X and is quieter than the PS4 Pro and One X. Keep it clean and in a ventilated spot/out in the open.

Hmm okay will have to see for myself tho

Supposedly on the same games, the Xbox Series X puts out less heat than Xbox One X. 👀

Ohh well that’s good, just hope it’s true

> Ohh well that’s good, just hope it’s true

That's in testing so unless you don't trust the reporter (in this case DF) then yes, it is true.

Also what is up with your subtitled name?

The sound reports at the moment are that it's proving challenging to get the Xbox to register over ambient background.

As far as I heard it’s on pair with the Xbox one X or even more silent and there was just 1 person that reported overheating problems. Many others tested it and had it running for days with 6 games on quick resume and they had no issue.

Oh right. As loud as the X? If so that’s disappointing as I have the X and it’s quite loud on certain games

You need to clean out your vents and possibly inside the console. My One X is whisper quiet.

It’s quite new tho and doesn’t seem dusty. It only goes loud on high intensity games

I play a lot and also games that might be considered high intensity. It’s really quiet.

Hmmm well what then

Check you have enough space around it, mine was in a pretty tight TV cabinet and was pretty noisy, I took it out and it's now super quiet. If it's loud it's likely too enclosed.

It’s pretty open not in something just under a desk

Digital Foundry did a video on this. Your concerns are unfounded on the noise front. It produces heat, all consoles do. Put it in a well-ventilated place and you're going to be fine.

Yah ye of course it’s just a thought
