Yep giving up on it. Taking it out to the yard with a shotgun sorry but all these stupid problems that they have its Fu** Up. So im saying fair well to the 360. I dont think anything can change my mind. This 360 is giving me problems left and right and now im saying screw it. Dam Wish it was so easy to do but still this sucks i did the xclamp mods and then i have fans blowing on it and everything and i still get a 3rod its done.

hang-in there and dont shoot your 360... i thought I would never be able to use my 360 when i got the 3 rlod. I replaced the xclamps and I have been using my 360 without any problems for the past 3 weeks. I play a lot for hours at a time and no glitches.

I have fixed two 360 so far, mine and a buddies. I found that the lawdawg guide is awsome but I needed to make some improvements. Instead of using nylon washers, i used rubber washers. I found that the nylon washers for the GPU heatsink caused too much space. Also i used one ribber washer on the other side to make the bolts sit closer to the board, more room when placing mob back into the case. I also didnt cook my 360 for too long. I turn it on after i replaced the xclamps for two mins exactly with no fan hooked up and the heatsinks tightened down.

try these first before you shoot your 360, I find they have worked twice for me and i am confident i can fix more in the future.....

You probobly have one with the bad motherboard soldering, cooling it is not going to fix it, (you can go on google and look up "dry joint" + xbox 360) http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=%22dry+joint%22+%2B+xbox+360&btnG=Google+Search it may delay the failure but it will just keep screwing up.
Call MS and tell them you are not happy with the unit, its a lemon and you want a brand new unit, or a refund.
I read somewhere about this subject and the consumer rights, you are entitled to proper repairs, if you are not satisfied with the repairs the company must provide you with a new unit or a full refund.
so if its not too obvious you opened the box and voided the warrenty, call MS and demand new unit or refund, if they give you any trouble contact the Better business bureau and find out what your rights are.http://www.bbb.org/

All you have to do is point a shotgun at it and turn it on if it dont work Shoot it. I pointed my Shotgun at it and turned it on and it works lmao but this method is not a reliable way to fix your 360. Have not had any problems yet so we will see ha.

Thanks for the info though that might help with my other 360 problem on my other 360 error 67 so we will see depending on if that one gets fixed if not i will find old bill and have a talk lmao.
