unfortunately, if you are a heavy gamer your best option is to put it in a place where it is well ventilated (not in a cupboard, etc) as they all seem to have the problem. They have greatly deduced the occurrence of them in later models, as the original 2 ranges had it worse that others, but once you get the the black elite model, its less common. (the slim is even less common that the elite), but it still happens. You can keep it well ventilated, but to be really sure, get a laptop fan cooling tray to put under the machine, as that will reduce the temperature around the unit a bit. other than that, theres not much else you can do. but it should be under warranty still at that age.

Thanks for your Answer @Jo Ridley,

My street friend is using Xbox 360 "JASPER" Edition nd he is also a Heavy gamer, Now his console is more than Five years old nd therz no issue in his JASPER, No RROD issue, No Disk Drive issue, I think JASPER edition is better than all other models (Slims, Fats)


Its possible, yes... Is he using it in a different setting to yours too? perhaps in a more ventilated location? I run mine in a cupboard and notice it gets pretty hot because of the lack of ventilation... and the RROD is caused by heat, because the GPU chip comes away from the mother board. You can greatly reduce the reoccurrence rate on any xBox by making sure it is well ventilated.
