5) GPU And CPU Cleaning.
Next step is to clean GPU (graphic processing unit) and CPU (central processing unit) If you do this step right it will help to stop xbox 360 freezing. This is very important and critical step so just make sure you do it right.
6) Appling Arctic Silver
Now you have to apply arctic silver thermal compound gently over GPU.
You will get this arctic silver thermal compound in any computer hardware shop for $1-$2.
Set it for 15 to 20 minutes then place 2 nylon washers on each screw on the heat sink then place the screws back in motherboard then add two more nylon washers to screws.
Place the heat sink on the peak of screws then push them down slight, finally screw them up. Try to make it reasonably tight.
Get everything back together and see everything is fitted properly. Now, Turn your Xbox 360 on.
