RROD Repaired 360, Heatsinks Cool But Fans Loud. - Page 2

post #11 of 20
I know what it looks like I dont know exactly what is inside. meaning cores what technology htt etc. It looks just like any older cpu and alot like my 5870s gpu just bigger. still the same tim application applies. You only are covering the chip that says microsoft not the other parts. If you have a tad bit of tim on the inner square and the heatsink is flat and seats properly it should spread itself evenly.

The key to this is how good the ms heatsink is and after some google searches its total crap. so again OP if your temps are good now leave it the way it is.

This is the thing, the way I have it now (fresh thermal paste) it works fine, turns on and plays games. I play the game for about 15 min, and the fans don't rev up at all, it functions exactly as a normal 360 would. But as the console runs and heats up something happens, the contact seems to drop from the die to the heatsink and the fans go from what sounds like 20%, then rev up louder and louder to 100% in a span of about 25 seconds, then the system overheats and shuts down.

ok you need to check the xclamp (backplate) and make sure its pulling the heatsink to the chip hard enough. Also lighten up the amount of tim as i suggested before

I said in the OP that I'm using replacement bolts and washers, not the X-clamps, and I've fixed the problem. I installed a 90mm fan over top of where the GPU heatpipe heatsink is and wired it into the DVD drive's 12V, If anyone has any methods of controlling the fan speed, or knows if I can wire that fan into one of the two intake fan's power without loss of performance, let me know.

If the fan is wired to the mobo (I assume it is) than you can just buy the proper splitter and it should be fine. I used to split wires from my mobo to 2 fans for the same reason until I got a manual fan controller.

I don't think the issue is with the fans not moving enough air, it's something with the CPU/GPU itself. I'd wager it's the GPU since you've tried a good bit of stuff with the CPU already. Have you looked at the GPU's contact/fresh paste/etc?

I think you may be right, that's what I was assuming before, however; modding this new fan onto the top as an exhaust has done wonders, with it now wired into the intake fans, it's quiet, and I haven't gotten the fans to go above what sounds to be 50% at all. And it doesn't overheat, or at least; I haven't gotten it to... yet.

wait wait.. Jasper xbox RROD? This is a rare case.

congrats. I knew it was a fixable heat issue. Did you split the fans or just leave it on the dvdrom?

I split them, but there's been a new development. It takes much longer now, but instead of the fans reving up over a short period of time, they go from about 20% to 100% right away and it overheats in a span of about a 1/2 second. Real weird, I want to install the CPU heatsink off the Zephyr xbox (which I have) on the GPU/NB and just install the DVD drive directly on top of the DVD case. It's just a few holes and wire extensions.

I'm probably going to make a new thread for that though.

Right you are, that's because in my infinite wisdom I wasn't thinking straight and will never know why I wrote Jasper.. Just wishing I guess. It's actually a Falcon, sorry about that.
