World's Loudest Xbox 360?

We knew the Xbox 360 is a pretty noisy machine, by this? Did Microsoft's Xbox 360 repair service not check this person's console before sending it back? The person in this video claims that it started making these sounds after he got it repaired by Microsoft.

Please use view video link at bottom if video is not working. (Xbox 360)

has anyone else noticed the TERRIBLE Position he put his 360 in?
He's Completely blocking the cooling fan. There's NO Way for hot air to escape, no wonder this guy's 360 got RROD, it's in a closed in space.
Light Yagami  +   2587d ago
It looks like it's Kira who is doing this. 360s all around the world are getting RROD (a 360's heart attack).
iamtehpwn  +   2587d ago
Good deduction Light
This could only mean that Kira is a Sony Fanboy..

he can put it in an empty room with 3 air conditioners and it wouldn't make a difference.
iamtehpwn  +   2587d ago
it still shouldn't be making that sound but
closing it inside a cabinet like that will overheat practically any console, especially 360's which are prone to such nature.

That's Why I keep a minifan blowing on mines. Hasn't over heated the year I've had it.

@ iamtehpwn
Yeah, I have 4 fans aimed at my HDTV, 3 on my PS3 and 2 more pointed at my stereo system. I can't help but buy crappy hardware which needs to be more babied than an actual BABY.

Get a grip. Faulty hardware is faulty.
iamtehpwn  +   2587d ago
I NEVER said it wasn't
I just said it was BAD to keep your console Trapped in a closed-in Area.
or any High-end machine

@ iamtehpwn
It's crappy hardware. Stop making excuses for a corporation that could care less if you live or die. It never ceases to amaze me how many folks defend a company like MS when they knowingly delivered a console made of faulty hardware and has been prone to failure since launch.

StephanieBBB  +   2587d ago
Exactly the same thing happend to my little brothers 360. He got RROD and when he called up microsoft support they said "OMG another one???" It was back then when the RROD went on it's killing spree. After getting it fixed it started to sound just like that and after that he sent it back and got it repaired again.

I own an PS3 and the disc drive failed on me once and I had to get it repaired. After that it has been absolutely no problems at all. Not even with the 2.4 update. My PS3 is quiet as a mouse but when it's rly hot in my room and Im playing GTA4 for 2 hours it automaticly starts the backup fan that sounds just like the ordinary xbox360 fan thats going all the time. I just love my high-tec PS3 ^^
iamtehpwn  +   2586d ago
I am not a 360 fanboy
I simply stating you do not keep a machine locked into a confine space. It will cause *any* machine to overheat.

How is it That I've been accused of being Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo Fanboy all on the same website? I own all 3 consoles, I make a fair and balanced judgement.

What he's doing with by boxing it in like that is closing up the cooling fan. I Want you duct tape your Wii or PS3's Fans closed, it would overheat.

It's common sense, not fanboyism. Yes, 360 hardware is Faulty, and prone to overheat, but if you CLOSE up the cooling fans, It WILL happen faster.

Nah I had the same experience. Mine was noticeably louder (but not that loud!) for the first 24-48hrs before it went back to its usual quieter self.
InMyOpinion  +   2587d ago
Mine was much quieter when I got it back. I got the Benq drive which loads faster than the other drives. I guess I was lucky.
dantesparda  +   2586d ago
That's funny
Cuz i got the benQ drive too, and its still loud as sh!t in my book, and that's in comparison to the Hitachi drive, which was the loudest. And for the loading faster part, I havent noticed a difference. If anybody could maybe show me some comparison videos

kind of sad people are willing to put up with having to "BUY" the xbox 360 5-6 times in order to enjoy the best games... I mean.. if the PS3 wouldn't be such of a big piece of $h!t as far as games are concern people wouldn't be willing to spend $349 x 5...

Good thing I never had the RROD problem... but I feel for those anti-microsoft/xbox that had to buy 5 xbox 360 in order to get some action...

Something is touching the fan. Probably the fan wire. He could probably turn it off and take something like a small screw driver and push whatever's touching the fan back.

HE shouldn't need to do that, MS should thats their responsibility not his
rhood022  +   2587d ago
That sounded a lot like my firesale 360 that died about a week ago. It made a sound similar to that, then what sounded like a human scream, then the red rings.

If he didn't say it was recently returned from death, I'd have said that his 360 was was one scream short of exploding.

It's a common mistake. A plastic piece of my graphics card came off and made my fan unbelievably loud. When, I took the piece out, it was fine.

When I played Crysis, the sound came back.

Infernus  +   2587d ago
I agree
When I got my Bravia for my room it said quite clearly in the manual don't put it in an alcove directly blocking the vents at the top, so I didn't. It never said it couldn't be set into the wall a bit just make sure it has a few feet above it of space to vent the heat.

When I got the PS3 it says pretty much the same thing (It also vents the heat out the top. Or the side if you're a horizontal PS3er) but it basically meant you shouldn't put you PS3 in a glass box. Heck a PS3 even works in a sauna!

The thing is though, while it says this may damage your TV or PS3 it doesn't say you have to leave the console (or TV) out in the middle of the room well ventilated by AirCon or a circulating fan or that you must get an intercooler if you live in a house a degree over 20C.

The PS3 can handle heat fine, I think it needs about half a foot of space above to be able to continue working properly, just like that guy had in the vid. The 360 obviously can't handle that. A console should be designed to work even in various enclosed spaces so long as the vent isn't covered completely or directly and it has enough space to push the heat out successfully (15cms is enough for any well-built tech).

Basically you should be able to put a console under your TV on a shelf without it overheating. I've been told over and over again by 360 owners that 360 failures are due to the customers themselves not keeping their system well ventilated... the console ITSELF has to vent the heat NOT you, you shouldn't have to worry! It should be able to work in a room, alone, without assistance from fans or whatever else, the 360 just isn't up to scratch for that.

It never amazes
me that the most commented and hottest stories are about the 360, whether they are good, in which case every comment is bad. Or they are bad, and every comment agrees. I remember when N4G wasn't over run by PS3 fanboys, those were the days.

edit: I hate all of the fanboys on this site. Maybe there just aren't as many 360 fanboys as PS3 fanboys, but it seems that this site is over run with PS3 fanboys. Also, what medication should I take for selective memory of this site actually not being biased towards one console? Please do tell.

edit:@infernus, maybe that is true, but this site just didn't seem to be so over run IMO by one fanboy base over the other. Also, much more ridiculous articles get approved than this. i.e. VGChart articles

Infernus  +   2587d ago
March 2007 - December 2007
This site was run by 360 fanboys during that time, when positive PS3 articles didn't even make it onto the site and there were tons of negative ones.

The fact that positive articles get through indicates (to me at least) that the fanboyism is now more balanced. At least you get to read about positive 360 news these days.

This time last year it was "Delaystation!" every other comment and "Bioshock FTW!" about a month before it's release, that continued up until Christmas time when things got a bit better. Burnout: Paradise in Jan started to swing things around since Criterion made the PS3 their primary kit. Now we're here at this point where PS3 fanboyism is balanced with that of the 360.

Just because the 360 is actually getting negative news now doesn't mean the Sony fanboys have 'taken over' it just means N4G is no longer under sole ownership by 360 fanboys.

A 360 Vs My PC
Okay, I have a PC with 3 seperate fans fitted (1 front, 1 side, 1 back) and my PC is actually quieter than a 360. I'm not talking about this speedboat360 I mean a normal one. What have MS done to the ventilation system inside those things?
David Hasselhoff  +   2587d ago
The 360 has two fans in the console, and one built in the power brick. When I turn on my 360, it's actually quiet...but as soon as the disk starts spinning it gets louder than any console I've ever had, sounds like a commercial grade fan. Most of the noise problems are probably due to the disk drives.

This is coming from the guy that does the same thing. Sit behind a computer and trade the exact same crap he does. How does this fix anything? You're just as bad as he is. How about "not responding" and moving on and not letting it bother you?

Also....no direct offense, but can you spare an extra second to spell out "you" and "your" properly? I mean...c'mon! It's like 2 extra characters. It's not going to kill you or waste your time.
