Xbox overheated in COD BOPS COLD WAR Menu
« on: 05:59 PM - 11/26/20 »
Xbox was on for a while got dumped out of the servers so I switched it off for a bit,
came back an put it on got to the menu bit and heard a weird kaplunk and a dink noise
and the box went off, it carried on clicking so I felt it and it was mega boiling hot.
I thought I might have to bung it out the window :(
If I can make a Good map in 1 month why cant these clowns make a good map in 3 years ?

Were you making your Xbox vape? You know that's bad for its health.

There are tons of reports in internet that COD CW bricks xbox or leads to overheating...

Not sure who to blame more- COD devs or MS devs, I tend to the latter, because this shouldnt be possible in general, no matter how buggy a game is and so on. No software should be able to grill a freaking console system, just from the hardware design standpoint even.

overheating is never a game developer fault

I cant remember any major issues with other games
before now, mostly played BF1 on it  and BF CTE other then that a bit of Forza and
Black ops 3 deffo never had crash like this before and no over heating prior to this.
This is the X1X  not the series X. I will knock  settings down to 1080p 60 for now.

. You either had a faulty consol, or it's time to clean the fan change termal paste etc.  Have a friend who had a similar problem, while being in the main multiplayer menu from cod mw his ps4 pro would shut itself down because overheating, it turns out he never cleaned it and he had it since launch, cleaned it for him and now it works with no problems.

Cleaned it many times.
Its a cod problem.
All other games works fine with the ps4 pro.

On reddit you find many with this problem. They think the frame-rate in the main menu is not capped.
So the ps4 goes crazy. Its only in the menus. If im in a game all is good.

In the menu even a brand new ps4 pro sound like a jet engine, but for it to cause an overheat shutdown I knew only of 1 example where this occurred but after cleaning it did not overheat again. Did not know that it's a widespread issue

Was it on Modern Warfare? The menu in that game doesn't have a frame cap so the pro will turn into a jet engine (dunno if they fixed it) after cleaning my pro and replacing the thermal paste I didn't have that issue anymore, but the PS4 just has @#$% fans in general

Yes a lot of game menus dont have fps caps so the console will push for as much as it can. Either way this shouldnt happen and id say contact the Microsoft support!

Reports of it happening are wide spread lots of X1X owners getting the same issues
all consoles are having issues with this game not sure about PC.
Microsoft are aware and from what I have read Activison are looking into it.


For now I have a temporary solution but its a bit of noise to put up with.
I tried the USB fans I used to cool a group of Raspberry Pi's,
pointing them at the vent inlets on the sides of the console,
That helped for a while but the problem started again.

So I dragged out a summer fan the blades are about the size of a diner plate,
an pointed it at the right side vents, the Power supply side
and pointed both the 5V Usb desk fans at the vents on the left side,
an then played Zombies for ages with no heat issues, the last game froze but I was able to power off with the controller.

The summer fan is from Asda/walmart UK I used it on on setting 1 the lowest but its a quite a good one so cheaper ones will need to be cranked up higher, not ideal in winter but it keeps it cool just make sure you are not recirculating the hot air coming out the back of your console.

Oh and Turn off the radiator in that room
don't have your console near a hot TV.

Apparently next gen owners should turn off Ray Tracing
so you guys do that as well ;) .
