[Games Beat] Xbox One teardown reveals it’s even more like a PC than the PlayStation 4

Both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are basically powerful PCs in game-console clothing.

But in the Xbox One’s case, this is even more so, according to a teardown by the venerable repair geeks at iFixit.

The Xbox One’s enormous and boxy case actually makes it seem like you’re shoving a computer underneath your television. In comparison, the significantly smaller PlayStation 4 case could actually add some style to your living room.

Score "one" for the PC.

now how to apply the waterblock?

Certainly makes sense to build it this way.

The first sentence of the article is just so lame that it takes away any credibility from the article

It's a subjective statement. Compared to the average Windows PC, they are very powerful. The only thing losing credibility here is your ability to reasonably interpret things.

I have a feeling the Xbox will run into issues with having the heatsink intake on the top of the box like that. People unaware of it's existence will probably be settings game disc cases and other objects on top, possibly starving that fan. Although, the One down clocks when the processor reaches a threshold temperature, so i doubt any damage would be possible.

The ps4 on the other hand uses a blower fan that intakes from vents in the side of the case, then exhaust out the back. Ill bet the Xbox one is a whole lot more quiet though

It's to the point where the Blu-ray drive actually seems to make more noise than the cooling system
