Finaly a way to get rid of RROD forever :)

post #1 of 45
Thread Starter 
To people who dont care about there warranty or have an expired one or
have a depression because of sending and returning there xbox360 to
micros**t... yesterday i decided to open my 360 (i learned how threw
billions of tutorials on youtube and its easy), i looked at the design
of the duct that is cooling the GPU... well its really pathetic, the
DVD DRIVE is killing GPU airflow and most of the air sucked is going
to the CPU, the shocking point is not here, the point is that i looked
at the rear fans and here it is, they are high speed (but not silent)
12V fans, running at 4V,i tested the fans alone on a real 12V adaptor
and u will get a massive airflow, M$ didnt put the fans on full speed
for noise issue, but i personaly dont care about noisy fans coz i will
not hear them when playing those fans running at 12V are really
noisy and i mean it but so powerful , its more 4-5 times more noisy
than the DVD drive at full speed, so i mounted a special adapter that
have a switch which i can control the voltage in case i found the fans
too noisy i can switch them down to 9V or less (but not under 6V or u
will overheat again) i personaly choosed the 9V with acceptable noise
and excellent efficency. so i disconnected the fans from the board
(join the red+brown cables for positive and black and blue for
negative coz each fans have its own cable) and make them come out as 2
cables only (positive and negative ) and let those cables come out
from the xbox360 then re-assemble the xbox again eh VOILA, you have
xbox360 with controlled fan speed, the result after playing 4 hours i
putted my hand from behind and discovered that the air coming from the
rear is still cold i opened the xbox360 again played for more than one hour again and i touched the GPU heatsink its still cold like 10C more than the room tempreture (not like before when i burned my hands!!! and i mean it (and thats on 9V so imagine on 12V it will freeze for sure . Hope you guys like the idea, well its the only way to make your xbox360 freeze without spending money on water cooling and other inventions!!! and make your 360 look like aliens!!! but becarefull, the fans are now turn on and off and controled threw the external adapter, so dont forget to plug it when u turn on your xbox360 or u will fry ur xbox in minutes lol. (always plug the adapter first and the them turn on the xbox), OK guys hope you liked my easy, free toturial for sure you will like it because its time to say BYE BYE RROD forever.

???

had to read this a few times to get it... Defiantly not bad for English being a second language. Google the term "english past participle" and you'll see why this sentence doesn't make sense...

Good idea on the xbox... i fudged in a pc fan controller into my xbox the second time i got it beck from MS repair... Not sure what they do to the xbox to "fix" it, but its obviously not working...
good enough

By doing this you will not be able to have your XBOX fixed (they will cite you for opening and modifying it), and some people might mess it up.

Unless you know exactly what you're doing I'd say just stick it out with the return service.

Apparently the failure rates are going down

its not a real fan controller my friend, but you plug the fans with an adapter with changable voltages, so if when u lower the voltage the fans speed is lower and they are less noisy (for night play)
