So that XBOX 360 i bought...

Postby HeX4 » Mon Jun 19, 2017 7:43 pm

Good lord i have never seen a console in such a state ever!

Looked like it was dragged backwards through Mexico to England.

The out panels covered in crap, the innards caked in dust, the fan looked like a fan made out of solid mud or dust... jesus.

Well i voided my warranty and stripped it apart.. (first 360 i have ever had)

Cleaned it up real good, only thing i have not touched but it's in my mind is replacing the thermal compound.

Console is pretty silent but it's roasting hot to the touch (not sure if that's normal)

Played some Perfect Dark with no issues and i signed up for Live and got a free copy of Dragon Age.

This is how it looks after i cleaned it up, not perfect but 150% better than how it shipped to me...

If anyone can tell me if the hot to the touch thing is normal i would be very grateful.

That model does run a little hot on top since all of the heat is supposed to leave that way unlike the original 360 models where it exited the back and sounded like a freaking monster lol

Yeah, I keep my slim Xbox 360 pretty dust free and it's still pretty hot from the top vent after a length of time. I've had it since January 2012 and never had it fail on me.

From what I've seen 120 f to 130 f is a normal range for the 360. I personally think that is way too hot. Hell my old Original Xbox never leaves the 90's.

I know how you feel, to this day the worst console ive ever seen was a 360 Phat Falcon I got from a friend, it was quite literally impossible to see the motherboard due to the level of dust on top of it...yet it still worked and never red ringed once...

as for your xbox, I would replace the thermal paste if you trust yourself to do so, will give muuuch better results

i have a 360 slim halo 4 version that is hot to touch after playing it .concern should be if the fans are speeding up .then that would be a sign it is reaching a temp threshold and is about to overheat .

That's nothing. I've gotten consoles with a bunch of dead roaches
As long as the console is working, everything else is mute
Replace the thermal paste
Keep in mind Slims do overheat. I see way too many on ebay that have red dots, overheating, and not turning on
This is why i prefer the jasper phat
