    hello everyone. im new to the xbox world an i ws just wondering if you guys can help me out.
    i just got a xbox which had RROD i was able to get to work but now my problem is that it keeps overheating. i want to do a fan mod with external power supply, ive done endless hours of research and came up short. If you guys would be able to lend a nubbie a hand, it would be much appreciated and stir me in the right way.

    Thank you,
    Xboxnubbie

    google 12v fan mode all you really have to do is put on wire in, the fans should run fast enough to keep it going if that is the problem!

    Are you talking about the 12v fan mod for stock fans. If so I've tried that and it didn't help. Xbox still over heats

    are you sure overheating is the problem? sounds like something else, if you put screws in they may not be tight enough, or if you did a reflow maybe it didnt flow correctly!

    yeah if you put good thermal paste, then i would say you have a cracked solder joint, when it heats up it expands making you lose contact, when it cools off its allowing connection again!

    i bought a $3 thermal paste; silver based. i made sure the heatsinks were secure. Should i try the x-clamp fix.? If i have a cracked solder joint, how would i be able to fix that.

    And that is why I don't recommend the x-clamp fix, I bet the screws are too tight.

    Especially because it might have been killed off for good by the XClamp fix.

    it may help to know what error code you have, that would at least tell which part is bad!

    You can do the opposite, put the mainboard in the oven at 250 Celsius for 10 minutes, I managed to fix 3 out of 5 boxes that way.
