Aftermarket 360 Cooling Now Available - Page 2

post #11 of 20
Definitly the result of not testing the product enough. Typical MS fashion, rush it out the door and deal with the bugs later.

I don't own a 360 (because it sucks ) so I cannot comment on its hardware performance (if it overheats or not) but all consoles tend to overheat at some point. If you play your little funbox for hours without end you can expect it to overheat in some way. If I remember correctly, the instruction manuals for every console (doubt that anyone reads those anymore) recommend that you take short periods of rest if playing for extended periods of time. They cite health safety, but we all now they are refering to hardware failure. I would imagine this to be true specially for the xbox and ps due to all the performance hardware components inside. You can't say, for example, that Nintendo consoles are better dsigned because they don't overheat since these particular consoles do not have as strong hardware as their counterparts (they therefore don't produce as much heat).

I have left my trusty PS2 on for days (in the middle of a football game, can't save) inside of a cabinet with no air circulation and it has never failed in any way... That is why I wil get the PS3 if I get anything. And because Sony is being pacient and waiting for the best hardware for their system. There is no need for 3 IBM whatevers, a Conroe in a console would be sweet!

You can't compare a PS2 with the hardware monster that the XBOX360 is (as far as consoles go). Hell, I can play my 10 year old SNES for days (yes, I have done such a thing before) without it failing on me. You have all this top of the line hardware crammed in a little box using mostly passive cooling. I don't care if the best thermodynamics engineers in the world worked on it, heat will be produced which will cause overheating at some point. The PS3 will have similar problems too. The Revolution may not have such problems because it's a much "smaller" machine.

for the huge price we pay, we should get water cooling anyway. I thought microsoft would look into this. huge processor and video chip like that is gonna overheat if they use a little fan to cool.

I've actually never had my xbox over heat. And I had it on for over 2 days once, backing up files from my PC. Melcar is right though, they need adequate airflow just like any pc case. lot of people stuff them into entertainment centers, but it needs room to breathe.

Huge Price? Considering the Xbox360 has the same computer power as $1500+ computers, I don't think paying $400 is a "Huge" price. MS is losing money on the 360....

Anyways, watercooling is way too complicated and itricate for a console. Unless of course they put something together like what Intel R&D has.

Well, there is a cooling system that would work here, but it voids your mocrosoft warenty and you have to send your xbox 360 in for a professional install. But i hear it makes your system much quiter and stable.
