What is the best position for xbox 360?

Should it be down horizontal or standing vertically?


Answer by  thumbstick (34)

There are fans on both the horizontal sides and the standing side, but the primary one is on the bottom. So therefore standing it up vertically is the best choice.

This is something that has been greatly debated on message boards. Everyone has their own opinions on which position is better. Most folks say horizontal will let it run cooler plus it can't tip over either.

As long as you make sure that the vents are clear so the console can make itself cooler, than you can use either way. If you are afraid of it getting knocked over by something, then horizontal would be the better bet. If you don't have room for it horizontally, go vertically. It was designed to go both ways.

Horizontal position will prevent the 360 from tipping over, which can happen. Vertically can damage the disk drive on the 360, the horizontal prevents this. Air flow is also controlled.

The xbox 360 should be faced horizantal on a surface that won't transmit heat back to the xbox (avoid carpet).
