    Well i found out its a Gpu overheating ( appears within 10 seconds of switching xbox on )

    so how would i fix this?

    Becuase i cant overheat it as it switches it self off =[
    And goes to two lights (player slot 1 - 3 ) <-- that makes everythink stop part from Rdf board? ( i think thats what its called) - the think that has the player 1-4 leds on

    No heatgun - Not putting in oven


    Cheers

    Okay Well its artic 6? or somethink like that =]

    Well i took the bolts of and washers and let the heatsinks just sit on top and it seems to work apart from the 3 rrod ?

    So did i tighten it to much? or was there a gap?
