It can be really annoying if your XBox 360 gets overheated too often, and you might be considering getting a new console! Fret not! Here are some simple tips to help you keep your XBox 360 cool.
1. Keep it in a well ventilated place. Make sure that the area has ample of air flow. If possible, place your Xbox on a small table or shelf that has ample of space. Do not put it into a shelf that is full of books, DVDs or even toys!
2. Keep it away from heat sources, such as radiators, DVD players, TVs, etc.
3. Cooling it with a fan. I think this is what most people do. Use a fan to blow cool air over your console. This is great during summers. There are also XBox 360 cooling stations that you buy rather cheaply.
4. Play less! Take a break from time to time. It is not recommended to play the XBox for more than a few hours without rest. This is not good for your Xbox, as well as for your health! Your eyes will get tired more easily also. A good break will be 15 mins for every hour of play. Have fun!
