I admited, mine was overheated, but it wasn't the design of the console. When i opened up the heatsink to apply AS5, i found down that the thermal packaging is still on there
If u want proper cooling, u can't go wrong with replacing the thermal to a high grade one, and as for fans, just replace the stock fans with 12 V fans, make sure to have higher RPM and airflow (mine is 5000 RPM-34.2CFM)
those 2 things alone will keep your machine running under 60-65F. There's no need for bulky pc case, if you want good cooling, you should start from those 2 things

I'm sorry but true or not, it's just common sense that when you applying thermal, u'd cut the wraping foil, not placing the whole pack on there and squish it down with the chipset on top.

most of the replies were against MS story about the foil,
I'm sorry but true or not, it's just common sense that when you applying thermal, u'd cut the wrapping foil, not placing the whole pack on there and squish it down with the chipset on top.
and it goes on, someone even had a link to the factory specs of the thermal tape used and it said it has a thin foil layer.
I'd agree that the factory cooling system is adequate, I have a launch console and play 3-4 hours every night and often do marathon sessions on weekends, I've never experienced problems with over heating. If you're having problems I'd recommend contacting MS and getting your console replaced.
If I did decide to do anything cooling wise replacing the thermal compound is probably the only thing I'd do, I'd maybe consider adding heatsyncs to a few other chips like the ram, video encoder, and north bridge, etc. Pretty much what I did with my Xbox1. IMO replacing the fans is a bit of a waste because you flat out can't find fans that would cool better with equal or lower noise levels.
