    Re: What # Xbox 360 are you on?

    A good alternative is to buy an intercooler for the 360. It's basically just a fan that goes on the back of the console and pulls out all the hot air that builds up in the 360, which is what can cause the red ring of death because the motherboard and/or processor gets too hot and is a known design flaw.

    My fist 360 died because I didn't have it properly ventilated and it overheated. Microsoft sent me a new one, but I noticed that the new one still ran hot even when I kept it in a well ventilated area. I bought that intercooler just to try it, and I noticed a siginificant difference in how cooler the top of the console is with the intercooler working. In fact, the brick wall that sits behind my 360 is discolored due to all the hot air being expelled out of the console!

    It's only $20, and in my experience it works as advertised, especially if you run the 360 for extended periods like I do.
    At an end your rule is, and not short enough it was!

    I've had my first xbox for almost three years. I had the two red rings which means the Xbox is getting too hot. My dad took it apart and cleaned it out and it works fine now. I occasionally get the disk-read error but thats it.

    Well, my 360 finally died on me. It lasted about 4 years or so. I gave it to my brother. Let him deal with sending it in to get fixed. I now have and Xbox 360 Elite.

    Funny you should mention it. I was in the middle of year 2 of my dynasty this past weekend when mine died. It was first generation and was due to give up the ghost. I guess I will buy the Elite now.

    I am on my second. The first was the cheapest version with a 5 gb hd I think. It got the RROD and I sent it in. Got a refurb one and sold it. I have had the 360 Elite for about 2 years and no issues. I put it in a better location so it doesnt get too hot.

    I also think installing the games to the HD helps also. The CD doesnt seem to turn as much.

    Ok. SO I was a skeptic, but I bought the 250G with built in WIFI to replace mine that blew up. Installed it yesterday thinking it was going to play the same way my old one did with the WIFI adapter - WRONG! This thing rocks. Very much an upgrade.

    I'm actually on #5... Went through three of the original 360s, and I'm now on my second Slim Xbox. (The first Slim died after about 3-4 hours.)

    Opted for the Best Buy replacement plan, console failed just before the 3 years were up, got a gift card for the full purchase price and upgraded to the Elite for free. Purchased an additional replacement plan, and the 2nd Xbox is working fine.

    I have become a believer in the replacement plans.
    Update:
    I am on #3 now.

    2nd Xbox optical drive stopped working 3 months after plan expired. I tried to fix it myself, but couldn't.
    Bought a refurbished unit from Best Buy, with another replacement plan.

    I may try to replace the optical drive in the old one.
