Default XBOX 360 RROD Successful fix

following http://www.instructables.com/id/Fix-...ithout-towels/

I was able to fix a broken 360 I got for 10 bucks. 5 bucks worth of nuts and bolts and a couple hours of elbow grease and it has been a total success!

I have the e74. I can get it to work for hours or days at a time by unplugging the fans and overheating it. I may give this a try if it worked for you.

That sucks. It's probably a solder joint. Disabling your fans and causing overheat may temporarily reconnect the joint but that's not much of a fix. You could try heat gunning it. There's plenty of youtube tutorials on that.

For my RROD, it was the 3 lights - x-clamp - overheat issue. It's still going strong since the fix. Played through Fable 2 & 3 on it without issue.
