    Alright, here is something a bit more concrete. I took these a couple minutes apart so no change in environment or the like

    My PS3 with fan running (after about 30 min of play):



    My 360 with fan running (immediately after turning on. About the time my hand comes into the frame the disc drive fires up.):

    My friend just got the red ring of death last month. He had bought his 360 brand new sometime in either late '07 or early '08.

    The 360's biggest drawback: if you don't supply some sort of extra cooling, your console will burn.

    So if everyone is having all these problems with the fan, why won't the manufacturer fix it so it won't happen again?

    Microsoft is commonly written as Micro$oft for a reason.

    All of my friends that've had an 360 have had to send it back at least once. I have one friend who was averaging a new one every 6 months until this past year broke the record. I'm just waiting for this one to kick the bucket. And, no, he does absolutely everything right, he's just an unlucky bugger when it comes to 360s.

    Wow, that does sound quite loud. I think there's the distinct possibility that you were accidentally shipped the new Microsoft Harrier Jet Transformer. Watch out for that, I always figured that an xbox would be a Deceptacon...

    Well first off your xbox is way to close to everything else. I would recommed atleast a foot radius, thats how alot of peole burn out their xbox. That is definetly alot louder than mine, I would buy an intercooler, there under $20 and work great just incase you main fan goes.u

    I have mine very close to other electronics like Pyro.. I don't play tons but some... I've had it since about when they came out and have never had a problem... I do have the intercooler on it though- those are pretty noisy I sent pyro videos of mine running with and without the cooler for comparison.

    Do not buy the intercooler, if you already have it, remove it. It causes more problems than it solves, google it.

    Same reason they focused on meeting the customer's needs with Vista.

    After previewing my post, I realized I may have come across as rude - so I apologize for that. I just find the concept of Microsoft caring about its customers as hilarious....
