I run [www.oldschoolgamer.com|OSGhttp://www.oldschoolgamer.com|OSG] and we don't fix 360's that old. The X-Clamp method does work, at least 65% of the time. And 50% of the time it will work for more than a few months.

It is not what we would call a reliable fix. But if it's your own time, and you spend little on the kit, you've got little to lose. Just remember this, you are doing a quick fix on a design related heat fault, on a unit with a DVDrom drive that is more than 4 years old. (the DVDrom lifespan averages 4-6 years). I'd use a unit like that in shop, but I'd NEVER let it go to a customer.
 
Good Luck!
