I have the Xbox X Scorpio which is a little over a year old. Lately meaning about the last couple months I have been getting at least 2 crashes a night mainly on TGC . Sunday I logged in and went to play my society event and it crashed three times in a row. I noticed when in societies my fan would go nuts as well.  I do have a ssd but when I first tried it I would get major stutter when my ball was at the apex of the shot or when the ball went past the hole I reinstalled it to my internal HD. Thinking maybe my HD is going bad I tried the SSD again. Didn't freeze but I can't take the stutter.

 Well I have a back up Xbox X which I got for 45 dollars  when I traded in my original Xbox and my Xbox S. I hooked it up and tried TGC off the SSD and same stutter is there. Which I don't know why it does that. PUBG and RDR2 run fine off the SSD . PUBG runs actually better that having on the HD. I then installed TGC on the internal HD and played 2 rounds in two different Societies and no crashing. I'm thinking my Scorpio is dying but we will find out . I will see what happens after a week of play. If I don't crash (I rarely crashed when the game first came out) then it's my Xbox. If I do it's the game.

We will see.

Only one crash so far. So it looks like it was not the game.

I have a full warranty from bust buy on my Scorpio so I will be going there this weekend and have it fixed or replace.

If your fan is kicking up on a regular or even irregular basis more than likely there will be issues with that box. Generally means the cpu is heating up more than it should & the fan is working overtime. Really no way to determine it except when/if it just shuts down completely.

These boxes aren't meant to heat up to a point where the fan has to work that hard.

Being under warranty with BB though you could make a case with them about it crashing on  a regular basis & see if they'll swap it out for you! I would if I were you while you have the warranty.

Best buy is great about those warranties. No questions asked from. My experience.

Guessing they make millions off the warranty business.
