Over the past several months, I've had many overheating problems with my Xbox. It has recently become a huge issue, but I refuse to send it in because it's out of warrenty and I'm getting a new one for christmas. I have tried every solution: Compressed air in vents, desktop fan blowing on it, moving it different places, installing disk to drive, but they work temporarily then it comes back. The can of compressed air worked for the first couple of times and it temporarily helped.
2 days ago, I tried the compressed air again along with vacuuming the fans as best I could. Every since then I play my xbox and it runs VERY quietly. Quieter than I've ever heard it run. I turn it on and it has always been very quiet, now it never gets louder than that, and I have had no overheating problems since even after playing 8 hours nonstop. I'm concerned that somehow the air messed up the system because it's been running weird? an anyone help?
