XBox 360 3RLOD Thought i would share my story. Well i guess it had to happen sooner or later. My launch day core console finally bit the bullet last thursday. I powered it on from cold and was greeted with the ring of death, gutted. After several attempts to fire it up i finally gave up, it was gone. I decided to try and strip it down and remove the rubbish thermal compound and slap on some arctic silver on the CPU,GPU and remount it all. Low and behold it is back up and running Has been running now for the last 12 hours straight. If it happens again i have the bolts sat here for the xclamp mod but i hope it don't come to that. So happy it's working again.
