Default 360 sounding louder when playing Fable 2???

Is this the case for anyone else??? I have an elite and I get just about every big game that comes out. My 360 seems alot louder than usual when Fable 2 is in the drive. Dead Space, Brothers In Arms, NBA 2K9, and Saints Row 2 are some recent games I bought that sound low though. Its like Fable 2 though is working harder.

I'm on my 5th 360, so if this one tanks on me I wouldnt be surprised.

Have you tried those other games since playing Fable 2? Your fan may need cleaning if it is happening with those now too.

Try another fable 2 disc. If it's slightly warped it could be the cause.

Actually, I noticed Fable II accesses the DVD more often than most other games, which could account for the noisier sounds.

My 360 locked up soon as the updated finished. The game was fine after I rebooted, but it was locking up on Gears too, so maybe it's just my system or something else.

The Condemned at my video store that I rented would make the 360 super noisy but when I got a copy myself it did not do that. I believe, It has something to do with a small manufacturing issue in the disc.

Just try another Fable 2 disc.

i think thats what it could be. the last time I had a 360 working this hard was Crackdown and my 360 died right after.

It seems to of leveled off though at the moment and isnt working as hard once I got a bit farther in the game. Just was seeing if this was the case for anyone else
