ask him where he wired his fans, also ask how he fixed the RROD. if he wired the fans under the motherboard you're good and if he fixed the RROD with a re-flow then thats also a check, but don't give him options when you ask just ask for the way he wired his fans, and for the method of repair for the RROD

If it has had an RRoD before then DO NOT GET IT.

Only if you do some cooling mods then it could last but it's not really up to the job of playing lengthly gaming sessions.

Proper airflow with extra fans + cooling mods will decrease temperature but it won't last as long as a Jasper jTAG/RGH would.

Only thing I can advice you is to properly cool your Xenon.

Please keep an close eye on your temperatures and if you manage to bring them down BELOW 70 (for CPU GPU and RAM) then it would last longer)

My Falcon currently runs at below 40 for both CPU and GPU and 55 ish for the RAM.
(going to add little heatsinks on the Southbridge + HANA and the RAM chips very soon)

That's a good idea, if you can remove the case and have an open flow chassis with the dvd drive out of the chassis and the fans pointing on the heatskins, also high quality thermal paste.

I've made a intake hole in the side of my 360 and covered it up with a fan grill.
Beneath that is a 40mm fan directly ontop of the GPU heatsink sucking in cold air.

The back has the metal fan mesh removed and I changed the stock speed to 75CPU 80GPU for the exhaust fans iirc..

It's still running on the MS thermal paste and Xclamps since I don't have AS5 anymore.

In all those temps where pretty surprising.
I do clean it reguarly to keep it free from dust ;D

Probably a really bad idea but he could watercool it, FrozenCPU.com sells block for phat's and slims

Don't. get. it.

It'll RROD again, as for how long it will resist, it's just a matter of time.

Cooling doesn't mean much, I've seen 360s go RROD during Winter, after short gaming sessions (mainly after just powering it).

He should still mount heatsinks to the RAM ANA and SB to prevent overheating from that.
And ofcourse should set his fan speeds to 70%.
If he can keep his CPU AND GPU on room temp then it should last but it will be very expensive.

see the going prices for both on ebay
sell which ever one is worth the most money
use said money to buy a new 360 slim (along with your current savings)

rrod 360 is not worth it, believe me
I went through hell trying to keep one running, it worked out good in the end because I sold it for double what I payed for it about a year later
