When someone say that his/her Xbox is having 3 red lights problem, It means it needs to be repaired. If you are using Cooler than it is not a cure but a prevention. You could have used cooler before acutally having the problem just to prevent your Xbox. But now you will have to either get it repaired from Microsoft (in case your Xbox's warranty is not expired, but one thing to note is that you will have to wait for at least 3-4 weeks to get back your Xbox) or you can Fix your Xbox's 3 Flashing red lights problem yourself with the help of DIY Video guide available on Internet. You can fix yourself without any technical knowledge.

3 red lights means you have a system hardware failure

Simply put, the games are dirty and need to be cleaned. To clean the cartridges you will need some rubbing alcohol and some q-tips. Using the q-tips, dip them into the alcohol and clean the contacts (those are the shiny metallic pins on the circuit board underneath the cartridge) with them. Be sure to get both sides of the board and let it air-dry for an hour or so.

you got a YLOD yellow light of death when you get a yellow light briefly and then the red lights start blinking, you need to reflux the solder on the processors and apply heat to them, here is a link on how to do the repair, if you are not good at doing these kind of work, I would suggest taking it to a pro.
