Help with Xbox overheat - Page 2

blow compressed air through the power brick. If you didn't do it.....DO IT!!!!!! Thats how I fixed an Xbox 360 that I got off eBay for $70 but in the end it still broke. Reason? My soldering fell one of my 12v fan mod and hit a ground source. After a few sparks, my Xbox 360 got the RROD

just replace the xclamps on the heatsinks and add new thermal paste, should solve your problem.

This is what I do with broken ebay xbox's, then resale them for small profit locally

do the 12v fan mod -u need to keep it cool. they R 12V fans the dickrosoft runs at 5V- this will almost triple your cooling. I also would remove the metal mesh in front of the fans .this restricts the air coming out by 30%. i also added a fan from a broken 360 on the side of the xbox sucking out and a fan blowing in on the same side as the harddrive. I know it sounds excessive but my box dont even get warm. b4 u could feel a lot of heat underneath the gpu on the bottom of the 360- just wire the xtra fans on a 12v power source, like an old cordless phone or a cell phone charger. anything will work as long as it is between 5V-12V ..
