Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Series X's rumored heat issues seem to be false

The guy that droidknight posted must be swimming in microsoft money, paid influencers are not something you want to look when you want a unbiased opinion.

To my knowledge he is just a general tech youtuber, tests gaming PC's, consoles, smart phones, tablets, anything that tech companies send him to test basically. Rather or not those tech companies pay him to give their products positive reviews, I can't say.

that wasn't sarcastic i was mixing the top comments made on the latest xbox youtube video

Youtube gaming never fails to impress, just the other day i found out crapgamer , the biggest xbox fanboy years ago , now is a plastation fanboy that shits on microsoft at ever opportunity.

Shit is wild 

Yeah, crapgamer switched teams and Xbox fans absolutely can't stand him now, most of his videos get swarmed with dislikes. 





What are those low temperatures, my laptop gets 76c to the touch while playing FS 2020. The function keys hurt my fingers if I press them too long. My previous gaming laptop expelled air so hot it would burn my fingers if I held them in front of the vents. At least I never have to worry about my hands getting cold :) Same for my amp, if I turn my music up you can boil an egg on top of it. Why are consoles so sensitive to heat! Well not the ps4 pro, that gets nice and toasty, can keep my coffee warm sitting on top :)

you guys are being fooled by the MS pr machine, aside from having no games or exclusives, it will also Green Light of Death when it reaches 69degrees.
the Series X is the worst developed console ever

ALSO DF is obviously paid by MS, DO NOT TRUST DF

Wow, remind me to never listen to anything you have to say again. It's one thing to make clearly uninformed comment on XSX, but now your bashing Digital Foundry. If you actually follow their content they been one of the biggest critics of XSS and have been very harsh on Microsoft for XSX games supporting older consoles. It baffles me that you can even question their integrity. 

I'll keep listening to Digital Foundry and will try to ignore garage comments from now on.

That sounds like a disaster waiting to happen. Liquid and electronics just don't mix xD

Yeah reports actually point to the PS5 being slightly hotter than the Series X.

Sources, please..

It's also not practical with the thing being at the other end of the room. Consoles should fare better with a coffee spill than a laptop. Happened twice, both times they never recovered. One kept randomly crashing, the other had sticky repeating keys. If you like the same letter a million times, I have a laptop for you :) I kept using it with an external keyboard until I got a new one.

My new laptop expels the air to the back, old one to the side where it kept my coffee warm (was too close obviously)

There are no reliable source for that claim.
