When Microsoft unveiled the Xbox Series X, it was obvious that the console was going to have some serious heat to dissipate. Its components ó an eight-core Ryzen CPU, powerful SSD, and 52-CU RDNA2 GPU running at over 1.8GHz ó were all guaranteed to be power-hungry parts. The Xbox Series X was accordingly large (though not as large as the PlayStation 5), and mounted a 130mm fan to vent heat from the entire console.

There are reports that the console, while quiet, runs quite warm. It sounds as though itís hovering around the point where touching certain parts of it, like the expansion card for SSDs, can be uncomfortable while the console is in operation.

Our sister site PCMag quotes multiple individuals who have tested the console remarking on just how hot it is, with Jeux Videoís Ken Bogard saying in a no-longer-available video that: ďThe Series X is hot, like really hot! It doesnít make any noise, but damn itís hot! The console is emitting heat like crazy. Itís almost like a fireplace shaft. You can heat up your flat with it.Ē
