Who wants to go out and purchase equipment when you can do it free in your oven
If you fix so many, then you would know that you can hardly control the temperature in ANY oven, even a digital oven. BTW, 285 is not even hot enough to melt the solder, but I'm sure you know that as well.

Since when can someone NOT afford a cheapo Heatgun? No Clean Lead Free Liquid Flux is $5 on eBAY, Aluminum Foil $3, and a $20 Heatgun? Hmm... tons of money there.

Enjoy blowing your capacitors there 4LC4PON3.

OP, when you're ready to learn from some PROS, head on over to these forums. You'll learn why you should NOT be baking your XBOX Mobo.

I don't have the patience or want to really fix the console that bad, I'd love to get it in decent working shape again just so I can either A: Sell it or mildly use it either way not particularly important.

I prob have a heatgun somewhere, and I need to go back out to pick up the right flux, because I picked up Tinning flux which is a paste x.x...

Right now I have a completely unknown thing happening the the system after my last "never baked it" attempt to resolder the RAM and it has gone berzerkoid.

If you can shine any light why when power is plugged in it will turn on and off about every 10 seconds without any control, no power button, sync, or disk drive, all 100% unresponsive, its a 3RROD and Gpu is heating up, no heat from CPU.

I have tried applying pressure to both Ram bricks that I was working on with no luck on changing its status.

Heatgun it softly on low temperature for about 1 min then on max heat for 10 seconds
