I have several consoles and I had issues with my oldest NTSC launch console as soon as i played FORZA and it is very well documented that halo 3 can do the same thing to the older xbox 360 consoles since they suffer from cooling issues.
You can do the XCLAMP replacement yourself to stop this from happening in the future if your xbox is no longer under warranty. Im just about to fix my own xbox 360 and DJB's xbox 360 which are both NTSC American consoles from the 1st launch using the XCLAMP fix. My console has lasted me well, nearly 2 years before the red ring so im more then happy.
