I'm pretty sure the heatsink never arced which was sad, even though it does have scorch marks on it. That may be from the bank of capacitors right behind it that caught fire.
You should ship that motherboard to Microsoft with a nice letter.

Heh, I've never seen the inside of a 360 before but i think i just figured out why they're all breaking down! No fans on any heatsinks? Seriously?!

The fans are at the rear of the 360, and a shroud is placed over the heat sink to guide the air. The fans are not powerful enough to carry away the level of heat produced (or at least do not go fast enough for a given temperature), and coupled with a bad motherboard heat sink mounting design that leads to the failures. If memory serves, there are 2 fans made by Delta that are clipped at the rear exhaust of the system. I do not recall their size or flowrate, but they are 80mm or smaller for sure.

All i know is that when my brother starts up his 360 it is noticably noisy.

Does he have an external fan on there, though? I am also referring to the older motherboard designs, as that is the only one I've dismantled and reassembled multiple times (the new designs could be different with higher fan settings for all I know).
