Why is it so noisy!! AAAGH. My PS3 is whisper quiet but my elite sounds like a jet engine which is doing my nut while playing Fable 2.

Is there a box mod I can put the XBOX in without voiding my warranty? Im aware the machine needs to be cool so I dont mind using a large airy box - I have the space.

If Id known about these before I may have considered it: Quiet PC Lian Li XB-01B, but Im not gonna void my warranty now.

Any suggestions?

you need to connect it to a decent surround sound system, you won't notice the noise then :thumbsup:

you can upload the games to the hard-drive cant you? Most of the noise on mine comes from the drive spinnning

get a long cable to connect it to the tv, i did that with my first hdmi xbox because it was loud even on the dashboard. ended up putting the console the other side of the room which solved the noise problem.

That's the first thing I noticed when my son got one last christmas.
It sounds like a hoover.

Yep - install the game to the hard drive and it will be much quieter or get a pair of surround sound headpones......

Another vote for putting the game on the hard drive - the 360 is much quieter without the DVD drive running all the time.

I can't play games without them being installed - The noise is deafening!

Mine just runs silent.. totally silent.. maybe its just me.

Yep, putting it on the har drive is the way to go. Anyway, once your actually playing the game with a bit of sound on you dont notice it.
