Ring of Death Strikes Again

Last week the Xbox 360 decided to give us the Red Ring of Death again. It has been really crazy with school that I haven’t had a chance to look at it until today. Luckily it looks like the screws had just loosened from my initial xclamp replacement mod. I retightened the screws and VOILA it came back to life with the familiar boot up screen and sound. I’m guessing this happened just from the heating and cooling that is going on inside the 360 causing the motherboard and screws to expand and contract. This time though I did decide to buy an extra cooling unit to attach to the 360. I am about ready to buy a replacement case since the original 360 case is such a pain to take apart. I’m sure Microsoft did that for a reason to try and keep us curious folks out.
