    Heat Guns are under-rated. If you have an older unit (Xenon), I'd recommend 12v modding the console to help prevent it from getting too hot again. Also, if you didn't do so, I would take the crappy thermal tape off of the CPU & especially the GPU and apply Arctic Silver 5.

    it is a old unit as it dont even have the extra radiator part, i didnt even put new thermal paste on as too be honest i didnt think it would even work lol, il get a better heatsink, arctic silver and maybe 12v it but i didnt want it to be too loud!

    the old ones you really have no real choice my has the 12v mod and it sounds like a little jet engine, but mine has had no problems for over a year. after i did the heat gun trick and the 12v mod.. just keep the xbox flat, don't stand it up on its side
