    If your remove the x-clamps be UBER CAREFUL, I bought a 360 on ebay and tried to repair like that, it didn't work, I think I scratched a trace on the mobo. I then sent it to a guy to resolder, he couldn't do it. I gave up and just bought one for real. Made a small cooling mod with some cardboard. Works well

    Already opened, pull out the fan plugs and leave it sit till it overheats, leave it sit until its cold. Power on and I wish you luck, that shoudl be temp enough till you get the parts for x-clamp.

    , that sucks, if that guys doing a resolder it should work for sure, ask him to do the x-clamp mod and you will never see the cursed rrod again. I have had really good luck with my current xbox now so I'm happy. Just to scared to like cut a trace again or something, because I would really like to know I will never get it.
    EDIT: I mean get him to do both.
