Freezing and three n two rings

I just fixed my xbox 360 from the three rings of death. But for some reason, each time i turn it on, it freezes up. sometimes it freezes by the time i turn it on, and it freezes when i'm playin my game. So I left it to cool for 5 minutes. then i turned it on and it got the three rings again.
so i turned it off again and left it for 2 minutes, and turned it on and it started working, but then it froze again. what should i do.

You need to go over the mainboard with a heatgun in a circular motion 2-3 inches away from it. pay attention to around the cpu, gpu and memory chips and you will end up re-seating the solder and should fix this better for you. i dont know what you did to fix it in the first place but i can say that errors like the 3rrod really benefit from taking your time when doing the fix and making sure everything is covered.
