Pretty sure someone posted a tut on how to get it fixed, even out of warranty...even if it's already registered.

I would rather fix it with the x clamp fix than send it in though. MS are stupid, and can't fix crap.

If you are going to buy a RRODed console, just make sure it has warranty sticker on it still. Better chance it has not been tampered or had any previous attempts at a fix with failure.

If it doesn't, you can buy stickers on ebay.

It takes 1 week for me. That doesn't meen it will take 1 week for you. It all depends where you live and where the nearest repair center is.

As for the fixing part.
1. Take off the heatsinks
2. Cover all plastic parts/things that can melt
3. Reflow with a heatgun for 4 1/2mins(CPU, GPU, SOUTHBRIDGE, HANA) then let it cool for 45mins( do not move the board at all as it can be lethal to it)
4. When done cooling do xclamp mod, penny fix, and new thermal paste.

I suggest you do all that even if it is only E74, or RROD. Doing all of it will give you a higher chance of it being fixed permanently or for a very long time.
