I applied the X-Clamp replacement (Flathead screws + Nylon & Steel Washers) and my console is working again . The problem I had was that the GPU seemed to be shot, as I had a "snowy" screen that made itself constant within an hour or so. I now have perfect picture again, on every game played. The actual process of getting it to work was; 1) Cleaned and applied new Thermal Paste. 2) Applied X-Clamp Fix (When finally opening my 360 fully, I found that the GPU was VERY loose; it was easily movable) After Step 2, the console still had the "snowy" screen, even though it seemed everything was placed the way it should have been. So, I did the following which corrected the problem. 3) Triggered 2RROD (Overheat lights), and let it cool down for 15 min. After reading what I did above, how long do you think this Xbox will last? Is there anything reliable I can add that will help keep the heat down inside the console for the future? Thanks in advance!
