    Does anyone else's GPU look like this? This is on the smaller chip. My friend's 360 got the E74 error. It was out of warranty and we decided to take it apart. We removed the GPU Heatsink and put used some ArtiClean to remove the old thermal paste. After it soaked for a few minutes we used some Q-Tips to remove the paste. After wiping it down using some paper towels, I noticed the edge of the smaller chip on the GPU. Is it supposed to look like this? [​IMG] I'm wondering how we can chip off the corner like that using Q-Tips and paper towels or maybe it really looks like that...

    I have seen similar chips on the GPU and they have still worked.

    Oh ok. Managed to get rid of the E74 error and had it up running for about 3 days. Then on the 4th day, the display became pixelated and when the console was restarted, I was greeted by the E73 error message. I think I'm going to give up on this one...
