What would you do? I was going to open the xbox and follow cooling info on this site, like taking out the clamp and installing a special heatsink (and fan I think), and the laptop cooler on the bottom of the xbox tip. All the tips that have been offered for a red ring of fire free xbox 360. Now that there's a 3 year warranty should I just use it normally? If I open it I take the chance of voiding the warranty. I don't think I'll be a 10 hour a day user, so do you think an xbox that gets played on lightly would break down within the 3 year warranty period? The last thing I want is to have it break down after 4 years because I never played a lot lol.
