    Question for all you Xbox360 users

    So, I got myself a referb 360 and I had a question for all you other users. Is the fan on the bloody thing supposed to be as loud as a helicopter taking off from 3 meters??

    I have the aftermarket 3 fan cooling thing on mine which is pretty loud (these things are known for over heating) I just took mine off and turned it on... it's pretty dang quiet.

    Mine can be sometimes noticeable, but 90% of the time the disk spinning is louder. The only time I've noticed the fan is if the machine has been running for a while. You might have picked up an older model, or have a lemon. Either way, the cooling for this machine is really important, so I would check it out to make sure everything is functioning properly.

    sounds like the usual problem with a fan before it kicks the bucket. keep an eye out on it and if you smell something funny send it back to mircoshaft and expect it back in 3 months. or just check that the fan is properly seated and not vibrating loose.

    it almost seems like they didnt even fix anything with the recall, we got my brother a new 360 and within 2 months the fans died.

    The fan is not supposed to be loud. It is VERY quiet. It's the dang dvd drive that makes all the noise. But, with the new firmware, you can install the game to your hard drive so that dvd drive won't spin. I love the silence.

    Okay I am assuming it is the fan cause it makes the sound when I fire it up with no disc in it. I can not imagine that it is the drive but maybe I am mistaken.

    As for downloading firmware... I do not have net access at home so that option is out...

    My first unit (before I sent it for repair...) was very loud. And so was my second. Now on my third unit, and it's quiet.

    Well when you first start it up the fan will be pretty lounds but should die down alittle. As everyone else said the disc drive is loud. You can download the game onto the hard drive and that wont spin the disk. You can do this by going into your menu options without downloading anything.
