I really can't tell about what kind of problem you have. Is your red ring "half-full" or is it "three-fourths-full?"(I'll Assume This)

Not every RRoD is caused by a problem with the GPU and CPU. If you aren't the original owner of the console and don't know it's repair history, it might have a problem somewhere else, such as a damaged diode, or broken traces on the motherboard. You should look around the motherboard for damage to to any of the circuits, or scratches that may be breaking traces. You should also inspect the CPU and GPU for cracks, and scratches, as these may cause problems too. Also, for your X-Clamps, you need to have two washers(Not One!)between the motherboard and heatsink for each screw.
