PostSubject: How To Avoid 360 Red Ring   Thu May 29, 2008 10:24 am



Do you have a sick Xbox 360? Here is the cure.

The Why Of Red Rings

If you've had problems with your Xbox 360, you've most likely been a victim of overheating. A faulty heat sink clamp is often the main culprit, but the overall cramped hardware design doesn't help, and can eventually lead to the dreaded Red Ring Of Death or RROD

Disc Disasters

Even if you don't get hit with Red Rings, you might start getting "disc unreadable" errors even on flawless discs. To minimize scratched discs, only move your console when it's safely turned off.

Console Feng Shui

Lose the clutter! If you've wedged your Xbox 360 into a crowded entertainment center, you're asking for trouble. If your fan kicks into high gear regularly, take that as a sign that you need to give your baby a bit more space.

Power Trip

Balance your power. That giant power supply brick needs some elbow room, and seems happiest when elevated from a surface. Drink coasters, or anything that elevates both sides of the brick without covering the center parts. It needs 360* to let off its heat.

Oh snap dude! Thanks for the tips Smile. I need to set my power brick up so it doesn't blow up. You and your beastin' articles.

Yeah, I told you most of that stuff. I didn't know about the disc thing though. I never move mine anyway.

Hah, nice tips. I don't think I'll have to worry about mine overheating when I get it. The room its going to be in is the coldest in the house. I have the windows open 24/7

Just because your room is cold doesnt mean anything. Your power brick and the area around our xbox is the most vital to your xbox's health.
