New 360 Slim runs hotter than previous 360 models.. OH SNAP!!!


"It may seem nearly impossible but Microsoft’s latest and greatest console, the slim Xbox 360, might be running a bit hot under the hood. How warm you might wonder? About 12 degrees hotter than previous models, bringing it up to a staggering 129 degrees Fahrenheit.

Nevertheless, this doesn’t seem to be an early sign of a hardware malfunction, so there is little need to panic quite yet. Primarily, this is due to the fact that the console can distinguish between heat it is suppose to ventilate as well as the internal heat, previous consoles failure to do so was the primary reason for the vast amount of RROD (Red Ring of Death) cases, causing Microsoft to extend the warranty of all launch 360s to 3 years."



I wonder if we will see more failures in the coming months once the Slim 360 gets a little more wear n' tear. I'm glad to have waited in getting a new Slim 360, (I'm waiting for the $299.99 version to be $199.99) & hopefully Microsoft can improve the temperature of the system's innards.
