    Well where I live, it is 85° F right now. It usually gets about 20° warmer during the summer, and I live in a house from the 1800s and the way it is setup we can't put AC in. So it is already extremely hot in my house. Now I when I turn on my 360 I completely fry. I have a thermometer on this fan in my room, so I checked the temperature before I started playing my 360. It was 86°. I checked it again after I had finished playing my 360 for about two hours and the temp had risen to 92°. :yikes: So I don't even like to play my 360 anymore just because of the heat that thing puts off. Does anyone else feel the same?

    92 degrees isn't that bad for a console...... it's less than internal body temp.

    Stick it in the freezer.

    No, thats the temperature of my room not the console. I don't really care how hot the console gets since I have a warranty if it breaks anyway. It is the console heating up my room.

    measure it again, but at a different time in the day. Or put a thermo in TWO rooms..compare the differences.

    that 7 degrees could just be the day warming up.

    Nope, no basement. Hopefully I will get a PS3 soon to hold me off until it cools down a bit. I don't think they put off as much heat. At least I hope so.

    lol....I dunno about that. You're pretty much screwed :p

    I'd say equal heat output. Just play in smaller segments?

    sorry I don't have a hard and fast solution.

    A cooler? Do you mean a fan like the Intercooler or something? Because that would just make my room hotter by pushing more hot air out of the console and into my room.

    ok i have a solution, rearange your room so your 360 is near a window, when you are playing put the 360 on the ledge outside the window, when your done bring it back in :D
