Reasons why this works. When Microsoft designed the 360, they chose a slightly unusual way of mounting the heat sinks to the processors. When the console is running, there is a tremendous amount of heat build up inside the case. This causes the motherboard to flex against the X-Clamp support plastic which in turn can cause the soldered joints on the processors to come away from the motherboard itself. This results in the Red Lights of Death.
To perform this modification, you require some tools and

Opening the case
Firstly, remove the front face plate from your Xbox:
After the face plate has been pulled off you will see a silver Microsoft sticker covering both halve of the case; remove this - goodbye warranty! There are four clips locking the top half of the case to the bottom half. Do not attempt to wedge the clips out at this point;we need to remove both grey plastic end plates first. With care, gently bend outwards, the right grey ventilation shield on the right side of the unit so that you can see a bit inside. You will notice that the grey side piece attaches to both the bottom and top white chassis. Look through the holes on top of the unit to locate the areas where the grey side pieces attaches to the white housing. What you need to do is take the thin skewer and push down, through the white holes (located on both the top and bottom of the Xbox 360) where the clips of the grey side pieces connect. Slowly pull out the grey pieces away from the unit while unlocking the clips and eventually it will release itself.
You will find that once the first couple of clips are released the rest come away quite easily. You don't have to use a wooden skewer for this. If you have a metal rod (or the inside of a BIC type pen) this will work too.
Removal of the left side piece is identical to the first except you need to remove the hard drive (if you have one) before it will release. Also, one of the holes (where you're going to put the skewer is covered by the Xbox's rubber foot. Remove the foot to reveal a hole so you can release the clasp holding the side piece to the unit. Once both side pieces are removed, we can open the white body of the case as follows:
1. There are 6 retention slots on the rear of the unit and 4 clips on the front of the unit
2. Unlatch the four front clips first using the terminal driver.
3. Once all 4 are undone, gently lift up the front of the case about an inch
4. Locate the six slots on the rear of the unit
5. Using the terminal driver, push gently but firmly inwards on each slot in turn 6. If done successfully, you will hear a click each time.
