Xbox 360 Slim is Rather Loud....

I know others out there have more problems, but just want to say that my Slim is rather loud than quiet now. I've had it since August 2010, and my assumption is that it's probably been building dust since then.

I've moved my Slim from my room to a work space I can use, so not only do I get 480p rather than 720p, it's getting more and more loud.

How would I be able to clean it without opening the console up? (I've found no help on YouTube)

Also, it has plenty of air room, always has. I've taken good care of it, and made sure "breathing breaks."

Hope someone can help

Hey there Punisher - sorry we missed your post earlier! Can you confirm where exactly the sound is coming from? The top, side, or front of the console? Or possibly the power supply? Thanks :)

I believe it is either the disc drive or the top fan. I pressed the finger VERY lightly on top of the disc drive and it was quiet, but it gradually built it's noise back up once I let go. Right now it's quiet, but gets very loud at times.

Okay, thanks! If you install games to your hard drive, does this diminish the sound in any way? Or does it not change at all? You'd need to play a game for a few minutes to effectively tell. :)

Sorry it took long.

I don't tend to download games to the hard drive, but I will soon to compare. It has been quiet and loud lately on and off.

But I just put Skyrim in for a little relaxation and the disc drive made a noise not like the loud noise I here. It stopped though

It's been a month. I just put in a game and it's loud again. (It has been actually but a little unnoticeable at times)

Hey PunisherX,
 

When it comes down to it, the console will simply use what it needs to perform admirably. If it needs to spin the disk faster, it will - sacrificing some extra noise for a quality experience.
 

Since this thread is a little old, I'm going to go ahead and lock it - but feel free to post a new question if you feel the noise sounds dangerous to your console. (In which case, you're welcome to opt for a repair.)
