    Well most people ALREADY have a 360 so they don't have the newest xbox 360 with the latest internal revisions. I don't think they can save our consoles from dying with a firmware update sooo.... unless you have a Falcon or Jasper console you probably still kinda fucked.

    Didn't they say the same with the Zephyr, then the Falcon and now the Jasper? [​IMG]

    Even then, the jasper and falcon boards just reduce the heat. If for any reason your console were to stay hot enough long enough the RROD will still happen. It's just made less likely by reducing the heat the console itself makes. Why did they need xclamps again?

    eh most RROD's can be fixed with the x-clamp method. i dont know why microsoft adopt this method. it would save them a hell of a lot of trouble.

    Yeah, Falcon and Jaspers can RROD, the chances of getting it is lower then others. But you still have a lesser chance of getting it.

    No, not really. If you got the RoD then just sent your xBox360 to MS. They should put the newest Boards on it and you're finished having RoD's. [​IMG]

    I guess they're talking of Valhalla?

    Now this one could really fix the RROD issue. Having the CPU and GPU on the same board means that there will be a single heatsink and a central solid piece. That means less board flexing.
    Less board flexing, less broken soldering and less RRODs.

    If it's gonna be like that, I'd love to get one.

    Might want to put RUMOR on the topic title.

    Anyway, YEAH, sounds like a GREAT WAY to fix my RROD 360! Just blow off another 250 on a NEW 360 that is SLIGHTLY LESS PRONE TO RROD!
