Fixing the RROD of an Xbox 360

The Red Rings of Death, probably the most heartbreaking experience for an Xbox 360 owner. Seeing your console rendered unplayable and all your games coming to its end probably worsens this experience. From the first time this problem occurred, it brought many debates against Microsoft, the Xbox 360’s creator and developer.
Back then, Microsoft lost a lot of money estimated to have exceeded $1 Billion for the repairs of those Xbox 360s and lawsuits filed against them. Nowadays, people and gamers may have already been accustomed to this problem and short lifespan of the game console, but their love for it doesn’t stop there so fixing this problem became a task for these owners.

But this may require you to pay for a fix it kit. With this is a package of new parts for your Xbox 360 and tools that you may need when fixing it. To fix it yourself, you will need to open the Xbox 360 and remove the motherboard from the case. After removing the motherboard, you will remove the heat sinks from the CPU and GPU. They are removed by prying the clamps off the back of the motherboard.
