skinned sheep: i only repair the console it self. i never did any work on controllers

@mac-and-me: you can consider buying a new fan. it will be quieter and stronger. It is fairly simple to install and I could help you with it. I'll post a tutorial soon on replacing the fan.

I recently fixed an xbox with a 3 ring red circle of death. I replaced the x-clamps with better ones and removed/added new arctic silver. I let it run with the fan only on one side till it overheated. It ran great for about a month but now the 3 ring red circle of death is back.

I've done this fix to 3-4 Xbox before and this the first one that has had more problems. Did I do something wrong or was it damaged too much by the time I got to it?

@tearinox: I would suggest insulating than heat gunning the cpu/gpu. If you don't have a heat gun you can do the oven method.

I have had the best results with the oven bake method. Just make sure you insulate it very well before attempting.

I just posted the Oven Bake Tutorial here :

I am really enjoying your really in depth tutorials, the best I have seen, really!

I am curious on how to JTAG, if you know how to do that. I might buy a RROD console to fix and JTAG if its worth it. I have the new slim model that is not being modded until it breaks, but I like digging in and modding, but JTAGGING eludes me.

This sounds suicidal haha, worth a try if your warranty runs out I suppose.
