Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Dont really want to put towels around it in csea i melt other parts
I had the same problem just a week ago. It's a simple fix but you need to open the xbox case, remove the two X-clamps and replace them with 8 bolts (M5 machine bolts, length exactly 10mm long or else you would have to cut it to size . You really dont need any washers as long as the bolts are the right size. After you've done that you have to reset the xbox by overheating it for like 20 mins then shut-it for another 20 mins. I just used a hair dryer and heated the vents in the back vents holes with the unit plugged in. The problem seems to be that the X-clamps loose their clamping force and the two heatsinks get looser and looser from all the flexing of the motherboard created from the heat.
Enjoy and merry x-mas!!!
