Default Xbox 360 is LOUD and it broke for the 4th time!

I was playing PS3 for a few days, then went back to my 360, the first time i tried to start it up, there was no video/audio and my controller didnt sync. , the second time, same thing, i tried it later that night and it worked, so i popped in a game, and it was LOUD, you could say its 3x louder then my high end PC!! Its like a vacum !!! I dont remeber being it this loud before, or it could be another hardware problem (I have replaced my 360 3 times !!!).

I'm sending my back as soon as I receive their shipping materials. My crapbox 360 started to make grinding noises which i really payed no mind to since it still worked. It started freezing up yesterday so i restarted a few times and then I got the 3 red lights.

I thought it would never happen to me but it did. I'm glad they extended the warranty because I'm sure alot of people has run into this issue.

I talked to their cust. service and they were very nice. I hope they send me back a good one because I don't want to send it back and forth.

XBox customer service is the best I have come across. Amazon also has pretty good customer service.

Wow? Three times? I haven't had to replace mine, and I haven't even received a coveted "Ring of Death" yet. I've had mind for well over a year.

My question is this: Where do you put your 360?

I have two places that I put mine, and I have experimented. The top of my entertainment center is one, and it works very well, or at the very bottom of the entertainment system. At the moment I am preferring the bottom (standing up on a piece of press board from an old desk), near ground, solution, with nothing behind it or above it to keep air from escaping. Heat rises, so if you keep it low with nothing covering it above, then you should have almost no problems (at least I haven't).

Also, if you can, Make sure the power supply isn't surrounded as well, it needs a lot of ventilation, for if it is poorly ventilated then a crash or freeze may result.

I've had to replace mine 4 times! This to me makes the 33% failure rate seem low. I'm on my fifth 360 right now and it's fine. So far for me 360 has had an 80% failure rate! Awesome.
