Is the touhou games don't count then IGN can die...

Agreed. Its a known solder issue last i read and has nothing to do with the IQ of the owner.

The rrod happens to an Xbox 360 system when one or more system components permanently fail. A lot of people, especially those not computer savvy, have jumped to conclusions that the reason for the rrod is overheating but that is not the case with the rrod because if it were overheating, letting it cool off would be good enough until it overheated again (not to mention the Xbox 360 has a seperate indication for overheating which would be 2 blinking red lights in the 1 and 3 quadrants rather than three lights in the 1, 2, and 3 quadrants).

The real reason for the 3 red lights of failure is a result of long term heat of the CPU and the GPU against the motherboard that caused it to “bow” or “warp”. This warping issue causes the lead-free solders that were used to mount the motherboard to have lots of tension on them. After it too having long exposure to elevated temperatures, the solders become brittle and develop hair-line cracks that are almost irreparable. It isn’t until the hair-line cracks form that you get the red ring of death. So is the system having heat issues where the parts are failing due to heat? No. The system is actually failing because of irregular behavior in the motherboard that was mounted. If you want to see what we’re talking about with the warping of the motherboard, check out this youtube video.

I then got my current one which I've had for almost a year and its done nothing but run smoothly.

I'm convinced that the RROD problem is in direct relationship with the owners relative IQ. If your too stupid to have an XBOX, it kills itself. :

He was joking to an extent..but how many people do you see who post there setups who have other electronics stacked on top of their 360. The heat from that device and the 360 coupled together equates to no good..that much should be common sense.
