Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Well you can do a conservative x clamp mod
on it .This will more than likely get your system
running again , but there's a catch . It may not
last long 2-3 months is average but some unit run
longer. It's quite simple actually. Strip the unit
down to the P.C. board . Remove both X clamps
and both heat sinks clean the chips and the
heat sink Put a thin coat of articsilver5 on
the chips . remove all the studs from both
heat sinks place the heat sinks back on and
line up the holes and get 8 10-32 x 3/8 pan head
Philips screws thread all the screws in evenly and
then tight (not to tight) put the unit back together
but leave the fan hanging out . place half the
fan over the large heatsink . Ready to cycle-
plug in the power and the audio/ video and power on
after 5 min the fan should be at full speed and 4-5 min more you should get 2 red lights -unplug after 10min weather you get 2 red or not . wait 15min
and reassemble your unit should be working . that's
Hope that helps . if you get 3 red and no fan before
you try to over heat , don't worry just back off
the screws in the G.P.U.'s heat sink.
This is not recommended for console that are under warranty
