    Did you use a good amount of heat compound on it??
    If its less than 3yrs old it should be covered by warranty...
    I've had 2 360's with rrod, but i've always sent them back to Microsoft for repair..

    You could try these if you get stuck:- CD24

    This site has some good info on it..

    Theres often new ones on ebay that come as just the console only for around £60 to £80, you keep your existing psu and cables..

    Did you use a proper cleaning agent to remove all the old compound crud off the cpu and gpu dies? also did you let it overheat before reassembling it all too?

    My friend sent his back opened, he did have it chipped and they repaired it no problems and sent it back sealed up again! Might be worth a try.
