Thanks Zid...I have invested enough in games, peripherals etc. that I am not going to jump to Sony's system.


Thanks for the advice and walkthrough John. Most of what I've found so far does seem to point to those X-shaped braces being a major issue because they aren't solid enough to stand up to high heat conditions.

If you manage to fix it please post your method and all materials used...I can use that info to fix my friend's

My 360 RROD Chronicles
First of all this is not exactly the right place for this, since it isn't Windows 7, I am happy with the quality of Windows 7, it would be nice had Microsoft not dropped the ball so hard on the 360 though. I know the RROD isn't news anymore, it's like beating a dead horse, sort of... Microsoft...
