xbox 360 4g hot

#1liquidhurricanePosted 7/10/2013 3:01:30 AM
Idk if this has already been covered but I just bought this after my 360 original crashed
I kept getting unrecognized disc for everything so I got the 360 4g. after playing for just a couple hrs it got really hot, on top where it's got the slit's is very hot. My main question is: Is this normal?

Yes, it's blowing hot air out of the console. If your console isn't blowing anything out, it will overheat...

Intercooler. Get one.

It is normal but an additional fan will help big time.

Do not get an intercooler. Gigantic waste of money. It's hot because that slit at the top is where the fan is and it's getting the hot air out of your console. Perfectly normal.

No, because the vent isn't in the bottom of the console.

Seconding this.
The intercooler was barely worth it for the original console, it's a giant waste of money for the S.
The thing has a combined CPU and GPU with a huge-ass heat sink sat right on top of it, and a large fan sat on top of that. Any heat is blown straight out the vents by the fan, instead of pooling up inside the console like the original design.

It's working fine as it is.
