Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
I will sell you my xbox. it has the x clamp fix because it had the 3 red rings. now it has e74. ill sell it for 175$ emial me back at firstname.lastname@example.org
You did not do the x clap fix correctly. remove the case and redo the thremal paste first of all. make sure there isnt any open spots on the paste. and dont use to much or to little then add the heatsinks back onto the board then plug everything up and make sure the fan is plugged in then sit the fan on top of the large heatsink blowing air down the other haft sitting on top of the metal casing. turn on your 360 and dont do anything. let it sit there and overheat for 15-25 mins. this will reflow your CPU and GPU. reflowing the gpu can sometimes fix this issue once you overheat it then let it cool down for 30 mins and try to power it up
