Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Hi, my xbox360 has the error code 0013 it is said here that it means "over heating" so i had left my xbox360 rest for about 3 days and i know that it has cooled down enough and it still shows the same thing with the same error code can someone help me. Thank you =)
Take your metal case, and drill holes big enough to fit 5m diameter x 16mm tall screws. Put them all up through the holes and add 4 steel washers to each post. then add 1 nylon washer. >>>make sure you do the penny fix before you place your motherboard inside the case<<< Place your motherboard inside of the case ( you can use tape on the back side of the metal case to hold screws in place; may want to do that before you add washers) add 1 nylon washer then 1 steel washer to each. Take off microsoft's bolts from the heat sinks and re-apply a ssmmmallll amount of thermal paste (size of a piece of rice for the big ones). Attach everything and you will be good to go.
Take 2 pennys, wrap them one way with electrical tape, then turn 90 degrees and wrap them again so no copper is showing. >>You will need 4 sets of 2 pennys<< Flip your motherboard over and peal off the white things with band-aid looking squares on top of them. Peal the band-aid looking squares off and apply your tape-wrapped pennys.
Note: If you do not have these puddy-looking things on your ram chips, Use some hot glue, not a lot though.
You may also need to "bake" your 360. When you are all said and done with applying and bolting things. Take your 360 and put everything in except the fan. Take the fan plug it in its spot, then lay it diagonally from its plug, ontop of the tall cpu heatsink. Turn your xbox on for about 15 minutes. Let it over heat good so it can reset itself flat. Turn if off and let it cool down for about 20 minutes. Put everything back together and enjoy your console as your paid for it!
