Why not just send it to ms? Is it past the 3 yr?

Doing the towel trick worked for me, although I had to do it every 2 weeks.

Only "permanent" fix is reballing the GPU...which not only is hard, the tools are expensive. Your next option is reflowing with a heat gun. This is said to be semi-permanent. I reflowed a 360 using a heat gun, so far it has been working fine, but I plan to mod the 360. The DVD drive will be moved to the outside of the 360 giving me more room to add additional fans to ensure it won't RROD again. Sure it'll look ghetto-rigged...but chances are no more RROD.

I have done the the heat gun and x clamp fix on my original xbox 360 and that seems to fix it. Had it since the original release 2005 or 2006 and it working great now.

How hard is it to repair one of these? Should someone with enough knowledge to build a PC be able to fix this problem pretty easy?

I fixed a disk drive on a PS3 slim. What happened was it fell face first into the floor, and there is a little disk that is held in place by 2 spring levers that got knocked out of place, so I pushed the levers back and put the disk in between them, and that fixed the disk drive on the PS3 slim. That piece could be knocked out very easily, so if anyone ever has an accident with a PS3, then that is a pretty easy fix.

It's not that hard, just takes some effort to get the xbox open and be careful removing the x-clamps with pliers or a flat head screwdriver.

Reball or reflow?

Like I said, not only is it hard the equipment is expensive so it's not worth it to fix one console...unless you want to get into the business. The reflow method via heat gun is very easy. I used this heat gun: http://www.homedepot.com/Tools-Hardware-Power-Tools-Heat-Guns/h_d1/N-5yc1vZbauo/R-202102620/h_d2/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053

Take apart the 360, clean of the thermal paste, remove anything that can be burnt. Flip the board over and place it on top of the motherboard tray LEVELED. Heat the motherboard on the Hi setting. Keep the gun away from the board about 3-4 inches. Go up and down, side to side, and in circular motion over the CPU and GPU. Do this for about 10 minutes. Grab like two rags (it will be pretty hot at this point) and carefully/slowly flip it over to the normal side. Do the same thing, try to avoid the capacitors and make sure to heat the ANA chip (above GPU) too. Let the board sit for about 30 mins and don't move it around. Get something to eat in the meantime. Once it's cooled down, reassemble it with Arctic Silver 5. Pray to Jesus, Allah, Darwin, or whoever you roll with, and power it on.

If it works, grab a drink cuz you are done!

Heres what you do, you take the x-clips off, and you throw them in the trash, conventional bolts will not warp the board as badly as x-clips, then you do a 12v fan mod (makes it twice as loud) and use an infrared soldering station (aka reflowing) and blast the cpu area with heat for a certain amount of time (cant remember how long). I had a guy who fixes them regularly give me one of these with the listed modifcations and it lasted me like, 18-20 months before it RRODed again, and that was putting about 10 hours a day on it.

If you have a friend with an IR soldering station, you should give it a try!
