I hope you don't mean that Intercooler, because that just adds to the problem.

Howso? I understand the old one had issues with power connectivity, but the new version has that fixed.

New version is the Intercooler EX:

For all I know it could still have issues, but I've never had issues with it other than the fact that it has bad fan bearings so it's louder than it has to be.

Are you kidding? If anything they were helping M$ by not including earlier times when the failure rate was much higher.

This does bring up another point, though, in that why the hell does everyone say that using external coolers voids the warranty? It's not like Microsoft is going to be able to tell what you were using, if anything at all...

yea but it should be manufactured stable in the first place. Your shelling out 100's of dollars and then your accepting the fact that you need an add on to run it without failure? I don't know about you but if something i paid for doesn't function properly i want it fixed or money back.

I tend to agree. I'm not saying it's good practice for a company. But by the same token, if I can spend $15 and not have to deal with these issues while reaping all the benefits of the Xbox 360, then I have no sympathy for those who know the issues but refuse to do something so simple to fix it.

Anything more than 10% failure rate is pretty dramatic :/

I honestly think that about 30% of the RRoDs are probably from overheating partially @ the users fault. However, this rate of failure is still unacceptable. PArt of it might also be people w/ older consoles just now having problems, IDK. I think I should stop "trying" to defend it b4 I get ub3r fl4m3d

At least M$ is replacing most of them. But they seem to be doing it w/ old consoles they get in from other RRoDs to cut cost and are just, very slowly, bringing the failure rates down... oh well. I don't own a 360, but both my best friends do and neither have had any problems. one has a near launch 360 that's been somewhat abused w/ no problems at all and the otehr got his for xmas and has had no problems at all either.

Ok I think this turned into a rant. sry [/rant]
