Xbox 360 upright or layed down - im confused

Knowing the Xbox 360's tendancy to get a little too hot made me wonder which way round to stand it.
After searchin the web I found that some people reccomend standing it up for better air flow, others swear by laying theirs down. Some people said if stood upright games get scratched.
Is there anyone out there who has heard from a reliable source which is best? Pleaase dont confuse me more by recommending i turn the Xbox upside down.

mine down flat and ive had no problems with it. i wouldnt put anything on top of it or close to the sides though and keep the power brick in a ventalated area.
#2
try leaning the 360 at 45 degree's, that way you get the best of both worlds.

As for mine it is laid down, over heating was mainly a problem for the older consoles without the HDMI port. Not saying that if it does have the HDMI port it won't over heat - JUST SAYIN

Keep it in the fridge, wont matter if its upright or layed flat, will stay cool that way :D

Im liking this idea. It would solve the 360's noise issue too

I have mine stood up, it doesn't get used much but it seems fine... It's designed to go either way round though...
#12
mine broke a few of our disc stood up chips told me to lay it down !

My son has it stood up no problems so it looks like it does not make any difference whatever way you have it.
