I started noticing that my Xbox one x fan started sounding really loud when playing the game red dead redemption 2. I did not put too much importance to it until the Xbox shut down and gave me a message saying that it overheated and in order to protect the console it had to shut down.
I contacted Microsoft but they just kept telling me to put it in an open space or to place a fan near it since I live down south Texas the days are pretty hot. I got tired of dealing with them so decided to find a solution on my own. I watch some videos transfix and other YouTubers since I was still unsure if people were actually fixing them themselves.
I opened my Xbox clean all dust out of it and test it out but the same problem came up. Next was to replace the thermal paste with a corsair thermal paste.I did notice that when I removed the copper it had paste outside the boundary and touching the other little components terrible job from Microsoft. I tried my best to clean it up and applied the corsair paste that I bought from best buy but same issue occurred. At this point I thought I might have not applied the thermal paste correctly so I redo it. Cleaned out previous thermal paste that I have applied and carefully reapplied it but same issue happened. I could not play red dead redemption 2 since the fan started to throttle up and it would shut down again. Could anyone advise me on what to do since I don’t have the money to be able to send my Xbox to TronicsFixs to get it fix…
Please someone help me before i proceed to make holes on the Xbox One X case where the fan is so their could be a better intake of air.
