2x RRoD here....oh well still loves me x bawks
I went over 2 years with this elite before this happened.
It's because you confine it in that tiny shelf, that hog needs a room of it own and to be suspended in mid air.
there is plenty of airflow in that cabinet. Open in front and back, plenty of space above.
have had 3 so far
Only 1 RRoD here. But I switch up 360s like every 6 months to a year.
Only one for me. Only lasted 2 years. It was a sept 2006 I bought in a holiday 2007 bundle.
When I did the rrod fix, I found all the paste ran out between the chips and sink from having it standing up all the time. I can't see how my new ones will rrod, they barely get warm to the touch. My old one felt like you could cook on it even with the cooling stand on.
On my 3rd
im not surprised because you have it flat. you need to stand it up. i have never had a rrod still on my first one from 06. i stand mine up and i give it alot of space so it can breathe.
On #4. When this dies (and it will) I am getting MS to fix and then I am selling the lot
I thought most said it was better to have them flat?
With it stood up any heat from the bottom vents has to pass the upper vents. Laying flat the heat leaves quicker.
standing them trashes the discs after a while, always kept mine flat, on #3 right now
Sounds like it is not working well then.
had mine since dec 07 still no rrod. I also keep it standing.
I use a fan to blow air in through the right side
That's making it worst.
Highly doubt that. Airflow is what it needs, if it's cooler, it's better.
