a lot of overheating consoles can be fixed by baking the mobo as the heatsink on the GPU lifts and fails to cool the chip

yeah well,did you ever read about the guy trying to remove his xbox 1 jewel?
one method is to put the lid in the freezer so the glue hardens and it pops off.
he left the whole xbox in the freezer and was surprised it didit work :rolleyes:

an a similar note, theres this trend with honda owners (especially in america) where they take the front lights apart and spray the inside of the light black, all except for the lense bit and i remember reading about a bloke that was trying to get his lights apart so he could do it and he put them in the oven and forgot about them, came back to find a lump of molten plastic in the bottom of the oven.,lol.,

Send one to me :(


I was playing portal last night, Level one, put the mug in the toilet.

Crash.

:(

Towel trick is a no-no. Not a good idea. So its in bits on my diningroom table, with lighter fluid, fresh thermal compound and some machine screws, washers and nuts.

When my lil bro's mate 360 got the ROD I fixed it 3 times on separate occasions.

Stand back everyone... Then HIT the side of it fairly hard.

Working 360.
