  1. coil whine or fan noise?


    It's not very noticeable at the dashboard, but it's there and I mainly hear it from the right side of the console. It's gets far louder in games like halo 5 or other 4k games. It's extremely annoying and I can hear it from across the room. My first xbox
    one x did this, so I exchanged it and this one does the same thing. Is this affecting anyone else? It's just a buzzing sound.

    :)

  2. Noise in the adapter of ac

    What kind of noises do you hear?

    I'd imagine the noises it would normally make are probably a hum from the fan or coil whine (maybe).

    I'm thinking this might be an electrical thing. How is it plugged in for power? Microsoft recommends you plug it directly into the wall outlet, and not into a power strip or surge protector.

    I had the same problem with my original Xbox One X. Xbox Support told me to either send in for repair or exchange at the retailer and I chose to exchange. My new console is extremely quiet. I would recommend you do the same as I think there may be an issue
    with faulty fans in some Xbox One X consoles. I have just replied to a similar thread on here and had someone mention it to me on Twitter following my replacement. Does it sound like any of the videos on YouTube if you search 'Xbox One X fan noise'? I found
    that plugging the console directly into the wall made no difference either. I've got the replacement console plugged into a surge protected extension.

    Noisy USB line.

    Rereading your post, it could also very well be something known as "coil whine", and there's nothing you can do about it. It's just the way your controller is. If it's the controller and only the controller, then that's what it is. Controllers have no fans
    inside, if your console isn't making any noises when the controller is not plugged in, I can just assume that it's coil whine. Besides, fans make a grinding sound rather than a high pitched whine when they're failing.
