Xbox Series X’s Massive Cooling System Revealed
Microsoft’s new console, Xbox Series X, is now available to the users. As a result, new reviews about the console is coming one after another. New generation consoles have been on the agenda of the game world for the last few months. One of these consoles is Microsoft’s new product, Xbox Series X. iFixit also took this console and took it apart.
Many images were also shared from the console that İFixit divided into parts. The Xbox Series X has an AMD 8-core 3.8 GHz Zen 2 CPU and AMD RDNA 2 GPU, 16 GB GDDR6 RAM and 1 TB SSD. All of the parts Microsoft uses in the Xbox Series X also appeared in this review. Accordingly, the following equipment was used in the new console:

While we take a look at the removed parts, we can see that consoles are not what they used to be. Nowadays, they carry hardware which can rival a high-end PC. Equipped with such a hardware, they’d need a fan which can rival a PC as well. As we can see from the photo, metal grids on this console are attached to the copper steam circle. This cooling system, which is connected to the main board with thermal paste, is protected magnetically with a metal layer. Thus, it is aimed to prevent the console from getting hot, despite its high performance.
