I have an xbox 360 which keep getting the RROD, I clean the gpu and the other chips and place a new set of thermal paste on those chips. I use artic silver 5, after all this is done, I power on the xbox 360 and the fans spin, then the RROD appear on the front of the console, I know the fan is not bad, because I swap it from another xbox that is working fine, I am wandering, could my heat sink be causing this problem, since ther RROD is normally a sign of hardware failure, thanks for all your help.
