Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
If you don't want open the box then the towel trick is the only option. (not recommended)
Recommended fix: get youself a xbox repair kit and replaced the xclamps. You can get them at GamesRepair.com
My personal favorite method: Get yourself a heatgun. You can fine them at most hardware store for like $25-30. Open the case, take out the heatsink on the GPU. Set your heatgun at 300-400 degree and blow at the GUP for like 90seconds at circular motion and two inches above the the GUP. Let it cool down and apply new thermal compound. Put the heatsink back and everything else. Test your console before putting the case back on.
