    What's your console's manufacturing date?

    I would repot that to Microsoft and probably get a replacement, something ain't right.

    Mine is practically silent regardless of the workload.

    first try plugging it directly into the wall, not a power strip. If that doesn't work then you can exchange it or live with it. The fan spinning up is annoying and I would replace it but it will still work.

    Just a quick update from me.
    A friend of mine had the same buzzing noise with his Project Scorpio Edition. He sent it in for repair to Microsoft, it came back and the fan sounds perfect. No buzzing, just the sound of the air being blown through the machine, how it’s supposed to be.
    After I heard the difference with my own ears, I sent in mine too, will get it back by the end of the week and really hope they fixed it.

    Some of you guys may have misunderstood my question and the intention of this thread. It never was about how loud or quiet the Xbox One X is in general, but about these annoying side noises like the rattling/buzzing you can hear in the video.

    Not sure what you mean. Every perfectly working fan does make swooshing noises, that's just inevitable when moving air through the system. Rattle/buzzing sounds on the other hand are NOT normal, and people who hear those kind of noises should reach out to MSFT to repair their Xbox.

    Have the scorpio edition myself, recently the fan has started to suddenly and randomly sound real loud. Like an unusual noise. Way noisier than the original xbox one and xbox one s. I hope microsoft plans on doing something about this. Im pretty bummed i paid $500 dollars for something that clearly isnt functioning properly

    I just got my Scorpio back from repair. Same rattling noise, that’s pathetic. I mean they fixed the issue on my friend’s console, and all I’m getting back is the same stupid noise like there’s a miniature diesel engine running inside my Xbox, unacceptable.
    Going to return it to amazon now and get my money back, got a nice deal on a PS4 Pro a few days ago. Somehow I already anticipated that the noise would still be there.
    MSFT did a great job losing me as a loyal customer here.

    @SeaBuf yes, I was speaking about the noise generated by the air. My Xbox X is silent at home menu but e.g. Wolfenstein II the airflow can be heard.
    About the diesel engine noise, my X has it too. Also my PS4 Pro and in some kind my PC. So I guess it's more or less normal or maybe luck to get a gaming device without it.

    Mine standard edition is the same. I’ve sent videos to Xbox support who are claiming it’s normal, which it obviously isn’t. I can’t exchange it as there is no stock.

    It's not normal... My scorpio edition made the same noise as the video... I call xbox support had a new scorpio edition sent to me, after it arrived I tested it (no noise, whisper quiet) packed the defective one up and shipped it back. I was only out a Xbox for about an hour to update and I got the scorpio edition 10 days ago. Xbox support was great about the whole thing. Give them a call.
