Why does the Xbox 360 overheat?
The Xbox360 is one of the famous game player instruments available on the market since 2005. The significant feature of it is having an online group game playing facility, and several other options. However, this instrument is not designed to counterattack the problems that arise when it experiences some errors. There are many causes for these errors to occur. One of them is overheating. Ãƒ’šÃ‚ These errors appear over the instrument in the form of circular red light. Ãƒ’šÃ‚ These red lights blinking in a circular form will indicate various reasons for the errors.
One single red light might appear due to improper functioning of the GPU chip. Two red lights blinking might appear due to overheating. Ãƒ’šÃ‚ This overheating of the player may be due to its improper placement, or due to the poor construction pattern of the instrument. If three red lights are blinking the error code shows that there is a big hardware smash. If the whole circle is filled with blinking red light then it means the instrument is not able to recognize the audio-video cable. The root cause of all these problems is the system overheating.
The main reason for the Xbox360 to overheat is due to its high processing power consumption. The heat that is built up during its use is because of the material used for the electronic chips and the way they are constructed inside. It is found that the soldering attachment of the GPU chip and CPU chip to the motherboard is being melted due to high temperatures. Ãƒ’šÃ‚ It is unable to withstand these temperatures. The sources that are used to cool the programmed chips are very tiny and ineffective. Ãƒ’šÃ‚ Even the paste that is applied on the chips to protect them from heat is not effective against heat. When the system is heated up due to consumption of high power for a long time the GPU chip loses contact with the motherboard, and causes huge errors. The poor construction standards of this instrument are the cause for it to overheat.
