    My 360 that I just bought keeps getting the two red lights after awhile I hear the fan speed up then its starts blinking. Idk why I cleaned everything out and felt the heatsink and it wasnt even that hot.

    yea but the secondary error code shows that the ram specifically is overheating and they say if you reflow the solder below the ram it will work mint.

    Throw some small heatsinks on the ram chips.

    Quite honestly, just send it in if there's a problem. Baking the entire thing might reflow the solder, but it will also damage other **** in your 360. The solder reflow on the ram will help with possible faulty RAM, but if it's just overheating, it's not going to do anything related.

    If all else fails, I'll buy the console. You can just msg me over aim (rapidfeur), but I do recommend you try other methods.
