When I first purchased my Xbox One X (At launch), it was whisper quiet, but after a few months the fan noise started to become louder. After a year, I finally decided to replace the thermal paste with Arctic MX-4, and it was whisper quiet again for the first month or so. After 6 months the fan noise started to get loud again and eventually started overheating and shutting off when I played any games. I replaced the thermal paste again, and the fan noise went back to normal, but after about 4 months it started overheating again.
Is anyone else having this issue? For those who have replaced their thermal paste, what brand are you using? I've done several PC builds and have never run into this issue within a few months of replacing the thermal paste, so I'm not really sure what's going on here.
