Is Xbox 360 Supposed To Be Standing Up. It is best to place your console horizontal because as. Now because it's standing up the center of gravity is higher up, meaning bumping a table/entertainment system is more likely to cause the xbox to move and therefore scratch it.
Do the xbox 360 suppose to stand up? In reply to chickinonachain's post on november 6, 2011. Just don't be stupid about where you put it.
Everything And Anything Related To The Xbox 360.
Compressed air can be used to clean your xbox fan (you will need to open it up to do this). The inner cooler attachment works quit nicely. The series x is most often placed.
If The Xbox 360 Is Turned On With A Game Inside And The Game Disc Is Spining, If It Were To Be Knocked Over The Game Will Be Scratched And Possibly Have Permanent Damage.
Now because it's standing up the center of gravity is higher up, meaning bumping a table/entertainment system is more likely to cause the xbox to move and therefore scratch it. You can stand it up if you want but you are at more of a risk of the console moving around and scratching your game then if you just layed it down. The 360 has an alright cooling system as is, and if you can put that power brick somewhere in the air, it will be a lot cooler.
Having It Upright May Also Cause The Disc To Fall From The Disc Tray If It Is Not.
The xbox 360 was designed to perform in either position, the only problem with standing the xbox up is you are risking it falling over. Never use it standing up, i have repaired at least 3 rrods and in every case the box was upright. It's a safer idea to keep the xbox laying flat.

Having your console standing upright allows more air to enter your console, keeping the console cooler. But as long as you use common sense and set it up in a logical place. Replied on november 26, 2011.
New Versions Have Been Slightly Modded With A Bigger Heat Sink And Flow Control.
Just don't be stupid about where you put it. I have personally witnessed this on two ocassions and 1. Ps2 has all the parts to keep the disc secure even when in use an xbox 360 does not, this is because the engineers who designed had to compromise the disc drive design to make it fit in to the case.
