    Well, we Got an Xbox , set it all up, and so far, it seems to be Extremely loud , all the time.
    I know that its got quite a large harddrive in it, and i have an external harddrive of the same amount, and when i turn that on, its pretty loud, so im thinking it could just be the fact that the harddrive is so huge,
    Or could it be where ive put it? i remember stories of peoples xbox's not working because air couldnt get to it or something.

    I'll post a picture of how its set up in a minute if that helps.

    Any of you guys got this problem?

    My mates is loud too. It's because it's so powerful. You'll have to deal with it. And when playing games it's barley noticable

    It's probably just the fan inside the 360. I would suggest on calling 1-800-4MY-XBOX if you have any other problems with the console.

    external harddrive? like 1 plugged in through a USB?
    The 360 is a tank, it's as simple as that, put wheels on it and it will roll out of your house blowing up every PS3 and Wii in sight.

    The reason 360 is so freaking loud is because of the game discs running at full speed constantly. I think this is because game developers were forced to program the games to run on core systems which lack HDD, thus can't use it to cache memory.

    360's are reasonably quiet in the main menu, running DVD's, and playing Xbox 1 games. As soon as you pop a 360 game, it gets as loud as an airplane taking off.

    its because of the fans, a disc roatating dosent make that much noise, but the more it needs to use the things inside the 360, the more fans make noise

    p.s. if you have a 360, and listen closely, youll hear a buzzing noise, that is the disc spinning

    It IS the DVD drive spinning at 12x causing that noise, not the fan.

    http://www.extremetech.com/article2/0,1697,2066860,00.asp

    "The most noticeable fault of the system, the one you'd be most likely to hear about from the largest number of users, is how loud it is. Sitting idly in the Dashboard system interface, the 360 isn't so bad: It's not whisper-quiet, but not annoying. Pop in a game, and it's a whole other story. When that DVD-ROM drive spins up to full 12x speed, it puts out a ton of noise. Fortunately, it spins slower when playing DVD movies, and the HD-DVD add-on drive is very quiet."

    "As we mentioned before, the noise generated by those rear fans isn't the 360's biggest problem. It's the optical drive noise when running at full speed while playing a retail game."
