Red Ring Of death Fix (X-BOX 360)

I have found that there are several ways to fix RROD (red ring of death). When i repair this problem i have found that placing #8 washers on the underside of the mainboard, before reinstalling the x clamps works very well. It seems to only last a few months before RROD appears again. So I have started to install #8 washers to the underside and in between the heatsink (aluminum grate placed on top of Processor to disipate heat) and GPU (located under shorter of the 2 heat sinks), with a fair amount of heatsink paste Seems to last longer. It makes installing the x-clamps very difficult. So even if the x-clamps do not snap on keep them lined up and screw them tightly into the metal shell the mainboard is placed into. I hope this helps a few people with this problem and Good Luck. Direct quetions and concerns to treborswindler@yahoo.ca.
