Xbox one runs quite hot

The Xbox One seems to run hot. When games are running, the unit is pretty warm to the touch, especially around its cooling vents. This system needs plenty of room for ventilation, too. We had to pull our test unit out of a cabinet after finding that it was hot to the touch, even with about two inches of clearance around the top and sides. Even on standby some heat comes out of the top vents.

Oh oh....

I trust Dtoid as well. But they seem to be the exception. I'll keep me eye on this though.

Why would you put it in a cabinet?

I thought that would be the least of the Xbone's troubles what with all the empty space inside. Guess not!

This is great news I live in Canada and winter is coming!

My 360 and ps4 both get hot, so I'm not worried.

I don't know anyone that would claim an inch of clearance on each side is enough ventilation for any game console.

Two inches usually is fine for ventillation. I've never had a system that needed more space than that.

That's true, putting it in a cabinet is never a good idea.

However, the fact that it becomes that hot, even without a build in power brick, is quite worrying when you remember what happened with the 360.


I said months ago that the airflow inside the console was pretty awful, if not non-existent and that seems to be the case.

I'm not worried about it for myself but it's still interesting. Nothing to panic over, of course.
I haven't heard of any overheating issues or failures.

I would wait to see some actual measurements before worrying about that.

Also does anyone else know of other reviews mentioning this? There seem to be a couple dozen up, I haven't seen any one else pointing it out just yet.
