*** Description ***
Hi everyone, welcome to HowFixit, in this video guide, I’m going to show you how to disassemble Xbox Series X, clean it from dust and replace thermal grease, this will help prevent overheating of your game console.

To disassemble Xbox Series X, you will need the following tools:
– Torx T8 screwdriver
– Anti-static tweezers
– Plastic opening tools
– Anti-static brush
– Thermal paste

*** Repair recommendations ***
I recommend using a magnetic mat and laying out each screw step by step during the disassembly process. Throughout this repair, keep track of each screw and make sure it goes back exactly where it came from to avoid damaging your Xbox. Thanks to the magnetic base, the screws stay on the mat and you will not lose them.

*** Do I need to replace the thermal paste on Xbox Series X ***
Replacing the thermal paste is not a necessary step, it is more like a recommendation when servicing the game console because, over time, thermal paste dries up and loses its heat-conducting properties, replacing the thermal paste improves heat transfer from the processor to the heatsink, due to which the Xbox Series X cooling system will work more efficiently.
