Sounds to me like it needs a service?  I'm not sure if the fan speeds up or down dependent on heat, or if the fan is broken.  Make sure there are no obstructions blocking any of the vents, but I would defo get it serviced if this doesnt solve it.

Try installing any game disc you are playing. When you have the play game icon highlighted, press X to bring up game details and select install game. When you are playing a game that is installed to your hdd the Xbox will run considerably quiter. Good luck!

Where is your XBox placed?

Are the vents clear?

Is there anything on top or below it that produces heat?
