You would think that with all the issues the XBOX 360 had with overheating that Microsoft would have had time to get to grips with console cooling.
The XBOX One is an undoubted improvement in this area. However, even with the S generation of XBOX, we still see these faults.
Part of the problem is the insulation of components with layers of dust and debris. This is hard to avoid. Over time, the console is going to suck up a load of external debris as it attempts to keep air flowing through the machine.
The good news is that the XBOX One (Original & S models) are easier to fix than the XBOX 360.
No need for time consuming reballing or reflowing, for the most part. A clean down and paste is normally enough to do the job.
Here i'm going to show you how to do it in real-time, so you can follow along.
Sorry for a couple of the (minor) errors in the vid, you'll get the gist though..
So, if your XBOX One S switches off after a few minutes, up to a couple of hours even, like during game play when the GPU is working hard, your console is probably overheating.
