Its summer time and i hate being hot.. the 360 doesnt make things any better. It builds up so much heat its causing the ac to come on more often.. thats just rediculous. It really is a little heater. Not only is it hot as hell, but its LOUD as hell. I would say mine is a 1st gen 360 thats been refurbished. Im thinking, sell this one and buy a newer model 360 that runs cooler or has a new-fangled cooler running cpu.. (any suggestions?) Or buy one of those slap on the back coolers.. but im not totally convinced by it and im sure it'll just make things louder.
