I Took Apart The Xbox Series X And...


The Xbox Series X is out in just a few days and the quality of the system and what it is able to do in games is very impressive. Today I wanted to take a look inside the console to see how Microsoft put it together and the overall quality of parts used.
*Thanks to Microsoft for sending over the Xbox Series X*

    Apologies for the reupload, I had an issue with rendering in the original video. I record the raw footage at 4K so that I can crop and zoom without losing quality and for some reason the opening video clip of the original file showed the 4K size instead. Enjoy the video and thanks for watching!

    Seems like alot of heat conductive putty vs putting the chips closer to the metal heatsinks with just a thin layer of putty.. My understanding is that putty does not conduct heat as fast or as well as just having the metal heat sink closer with just the thinnest layer of putty. Or am I missing something?

    What i would like to see after seeing a few vids of the series x being striped down and looking at the design , how slim the components are .You know that a slim or should i say digital version will be on the cards hopefully ,as being a pc gamer and purchasing digitally content . I can see a new digital series x being a must for us gamers that don't want disc version of games .

    I like how it's easy to disassemble for the simple things, like cleaning the fan or removing dust from the vents, but harder for things that could ruin your console: essentially allows anyone to do it without feeling like they are going to mess up 😅

    Sadly this sounded like they put together a gaming tower. My husband can find a casing thee size of this xbox and put better stuff inside then whats in this system . Pluse you can get Xbox game pass for a pc as well so i feel like i am not going to miss out on much this gen this was not very impressive to see it just kind of confirmed what i thought when i first saw the system revealing. Sigh 😕 im disapppointed with xbox and play station this go around

    If u have a decent pc then grab game pass. U don't have to buy a console if u don't need it. Some people don't want to deal with a pc and have never had a pc so they prefer to play console and thats great for them. What were you expecting xbox and ps to release thats got u so disappointed?? I own a pc but we got our daughter the series x and she loves it. Sometimes I take it downstairs and chill on the couch and play it. I have no complaints tbh. Happy gaming.

    They build the consoles at a loss, and make it up with their subscription services. You end up giving them over another $300-$500 after a few years. They cost the same as a PC, you just aren't giving up all your money at once. They squeeze it out of you over time.
