  1. Xbox Series X noisy when playing more taxing games


    So my Series X, which I purchased in January, has been noisy for a few weeks now whenever I'm playing more taxing games. This usually happens with games that are optimized/upgraded for SX/S - I've noticed it with Metro Exodus (after the current-gen upgrade), with Marvel's Avengers and to a lesser extent even with Assassin's Creed: Valhalla.

    Whenever one of these games is played on the console, the cooling fan becomes highly audible.
    It's not on the Xbox 360's airplane take-off level of noise but it's noticable, especially during loading times or other moments of quiet.
    It's a low-toned, monotonous hum, there's no whirring, buzzing, drilling or tapping noises involved. There's no noticable vibrations either. It pretty much just sounds like a cooling fan running in high velocity.

    As soon as I shut down or suspend the aforementioned games or the console enters power saving mode after 5 minutes, the fan quiets down quite a bit to a barely noticable hum. If the game is resumed, it kicks back up again.

    This phenomenon did NOT occur for the first few months after purchasing the console. For example, I've been AC: Valhalla on an on-and-off basis over several months now and the Xbox was quiet when I played the game months ago.

    Is this a cause for concern? It's possible the console's interior workings have collected some dust but otherwise it has been unmoved and operated in the same, open space for 7 months now.

    Feel free to move this post if it's in the wrong category.

    Xbox Series X noisy when playing more taxing games

    Hi there welcome to the community forum! Christopher here, an Xbox fan and been on Xbox for years already. I would really love to make your day by helping you out. Your concern is well justify! We paid a lot for these consoles, I have a similar situation with my XSX is a bit noisier than my friend's or cousin since day one, but honestly it happened since day one when the console came out. An agent told me to not worry about, he also told me that if the noise started to be unbearable I could always send it for repair! A little bit extreme for just a little bit of noise in my opinion. So basically I wouldn't worry much!

    Disappointed with Series X

    If you are playing Xbox One games on the Series X, you are not going to see much of a difference except for frame rate. When you get Xbox Series X games, then you will see a lot more difference.

    Xbox Series X compatability

    Microsoft introduces "Smart Delivery" with the Xbox Series X, which means, that if you own an existing game (like Minecraft in your example, or Gears 5) or a new game comes out for Xbox One and Xbox Series X with improved graphics on Series X, you won't
    have to buy the game twice.

    With Smart Delivery you will play the "enhanced" version on Series X, and the "normal" version on Xbox One.

    For more info about Smart Delivery and other terms used with the Series X check this page: https://news.xbox.com/en-us/2020/03/16/xbox-series-x-glossary/

    Xbox One X Enhanced on Xbox Series X

    I would presume that if a game is Xbox One X Enhanced, those benefits will also appear when the game is played on Xbox Series X, along with any Optimized for Xbox Series X benefits that same game might receive through future updates. I doubt seriously it
    would be a step backward when played on the superior hardware.

    Keep in mind the Smart Delivery feature, which will enable Xbox Live to send the best possible version of the game to Xbox Series X automatically. So that may be the Xbox One X Enhanced version, or (if the developer makes such an update possible) the Optimized
    for Xbox Series X version. Given the choice, I'd want the Optimized version. :)
