If it burns when you touch it, then you should get a Cooling Fan for the Xbox.

But I have had my Xbox since 2007 and it's been fine when it comes to being hot, never got the Red Ring of Death. Make sure it is not near any appliances such as microwaves, etc.

Just make sure you console is in a cool area. I have one of my console's power bricks right on top of a vent that blows cool air in. If your room gets to hot, the light on the power brick will turn red until your console cools down.

And polish the surface it's sitting on too. Keeps your console clear of dust and it looks nice when you've got house guests.

OP: Does the physical console itself get hot, or is the air coming out of the vent fan hot? If it's just the air, this is a good thing. You want that hot air coming out, not staying in.
