The Xbox One S console is the ultimate gaming and 4K entertainment system. This impressive console supports 4K Blu-Ray, 4K video streaming, and HDR while being 40% slimmer than the Xbox One. However, the Xbox One S is not a perfect console with many of its users annoyed by an abnormally loud fan noise.
Xbox One S owners have complained about a loud fan noise since the day the console was launched. When you first install and use the console, the fan noise is not that annoying. Over time, it gets louder and louder — especially under load. Some users even reported their consoles suddenly becoming very noisy — “like a jet engine for a few seconds” — with the fan’s noise level eventually going back to normal.
Moreover, many Xbox One S users panicked when first hearing the console’s abnormal amount of noise given Microsoft’s history with heat problems across the Xbox lines.
Xbox One S owners complain about abnormal fan noise
came home today and turned my xbox on to find the fan running extremely loud, almost like it was under extreme load. Tried looking up my problem but all i can find is posts about fans vibrating and such. Mine is just running really loud, and was not doing this yesterday. Any known fixes? i’ve tried unplugging it and plugging it back in as well as restarting.
The good news is that the console is still cool to touch, means that the problem isn’t caused by an overheating issue. Microsoft has yet to comment on this situation.
Have you also experienced loud fan noise on your Xbox One S? Did you find a workaround to reduce the fan noise?
