post #44 of 54
yea ive got 4 of them with RROD in my room right now,i got them from my uncle who works at costco,i dont know why he would have a bunch of garbage xbox's?.. id didnt really ask,i was to excited about seeing that many xbox's at one time.

but since i don't have a recite or any proof of purchase,i doubt i will be legible for the Microsoft fix?

can anyone confirm the xclamp fix?


im trying the towel on one right now,maybe i will get luck.


EDIT:Towel Trick did work,at least for now,I have no idea how long it will last,but as of now one of them is running cool....maybe i will get lucky and have no more problems.

im just going to let it sit overnight,and then stress test it tommorow.

I think you just call MS and they send you a box with shipping lables. I don't think you need any receipt. Could be wrong, but that's what I've heard about the RMA process.

If you are comfortable opening your case, (voiding your warrenty) then do what I did. Take everything off the xbox, (There are many guides, use google), take both heat sinks off, cover the plastic IO connector parts on the sides and use a heatgun.
This has lasted me 6 months on the first time, so I did it again, and it's going strong. If you want a longer term thing, go and search X-Clamp replacement and find the parts to fix your clamps.
This works because when the board is sitting there, the x-clamps lose tension over time, so teh board warps to the back of the case. When it does this, it puts too much tension on the solders, breaking them. The heatgun reheats them, and fixes it.

Now i can play Call of Duty 4 without Cheaters (PC) or Mouse Snipers (PS3).

I would suggest the X-Clamp and Heatgun fix. I did mine in less than an hour.

just squeeze a bunch of hot glue over the IO component connectors?

anyone try a heatsink pressure mod using washers?

For you.

Way to fix the RROD

New Thermal paste
Lap the heat sinks
New fans
http://secure.llamma.com/catalog/pro...roducts_id=715
Use this method in heatsink installion
http://www.llamma.com/xbox360/repair...-clamp_fix.htm
That spreate two fans for each cpu and gpu.
Than tape Cpu heatsink to the cpu.
And that add a cover to the gpu andalso tape to the duct.
Finally add memory heatsinks to memory.
There you go.

What I did and now it runs at room temp.
