    Cool Do you clean your 360?

    If so how often do you clean it? I clean mine inside and out about every 2 months and re-apply the thermal paste when needed.



    Random question, I know.

    Every couple of months I clean it out, I use a blowing machine to get the dust out and a small paint brush if needs be to get at the bits in the fans etc...

    Usually only the heat sinks get dusty though

    I use a brush to dust off and a compressor to clean the rest.

    If you use an air compressor make sure you set to like 5-10 psi

    I left mine for well over a year and it was a right mess inside, must have cleaned out half a cups worth of dust just out of the heat sinks, no wonder the bloody thing was running so hot. Might be worth just taking a look and giving it the once over, might save you having to ship it off to MS for repair again.

    I know I should, and now that warranty has run out, they can't bitch about it, so I probably should, she has been moved around a lot and left in rather dusty areas so it would be best.

    Though my console was a Piece of shit launch console, couldn't believe how many times I had to send it back haha
