    Well my xbox keeps getting the 3rrod now i know your going to tell me to x-clamp it but i have no thermal paste.

    Its weird, seeing as how heat is not the problem because i have two 12v fans(That connect to ac adapter) and whisper fans where the stock fans go. WTF????

    I also did the penny trick so the motherboard wont bend, it shouldn't because it dosent get hot.



    There is no hardware failure because when i re soilder the chips by disconnecting the fans for 15 min and let the 360 cool off i play for hours. All seems good but when i turn it on bam 3 red lights.

    Simple solution is to do the X-clamp with new thermal paste. There's obviously no way around it so don't try to find one. Last I checked, newegg had a 3.5 oz tube for like $10 shipped.
