    Default My custom Xbox 360 is alive once more

    I have customised an xbox quite a lot for my son who loves it.

    Yesterday it RROD (well Blue ring of death in my case)

    Took it all apart.

    Gave everything a good blow out with compressed air.

    Removed the Xclamps

    Removed the old Tim with Akasa tim cleaner.

    Used Artic Silver Tim in its place. Not too much but not too little.

    Tightened up with M5 Machine Screws (nylon washer underneath and two metal washers on top for each mounting point)

    Cleaned the solder connections with Noclean Flux then reflowed the GPU for 45 mins.

    Left for 20 mins to cool then turned it on with everything crossed.

    Well it works but for how long I wonder. Lets hope for a long time yet.

    Needless to say my 7 year old is very happy.

    If only you were not so far away, oh well.

    Just out of interest what do you need doing ? Customising or repairing?

    Thanks very much mate. It really depends on what you want doing but it probably won't be cheap.

    PM your ideas and I will let you know how much.

    Cheers
