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.

I had a 360 for just under 2 years. It RRODed about 3 or 4 months ago. But even then it was because before I know about the problem I put in a computer desk computer storage compartment and played it. It was like a computer compartment with a door on it.
Now the only problem is that some divx movies that I streem to my xbox from my comp dont work because of the lack of a compatible codec. And the disk read errors that make Mass Effect unplaytable and occure in other games alot. So im going to call M$ and see if I can get a new one.

EDIT: When it RRODed 4 months ago I got a new one in less than a week. The replacment was probably a refurbished one with a ****ty dvd drive.

The actual cause of the RRoD is a malfunction with the GPU Cooler Retention Kit. It screws up and comes loose after a certain length of time. The new Falcon ones fix this issue. I know several people who got a falcon from MSFT after the RRoD and their 360's not only have not gotten the RRoD but they run cooler and quieter. My only complaint with my Falcon Elite is the DVD drive is loud.
