First off, welcome & enjoy. If you haven't already, take a minute to read the rules & check out the layout of the site.

For my X360, I have a shelf cleared off & bottle caps (like 20 oz. Coke or 2-liter) under each corner for airflow.

I also added an auxiliary cooling fan added. The AF is a little noisy for the first couple minutes & sometimes it keeps

running when I shut the console down. Unplugging the controller usually stops this. The shelf it's on is near an exterior

window w/ a fan blowing out.

As I understand, X360s made after Sept. 07 are supposed to have the upgrades built in to prevent RROD.

Keep it in the box it came in, never turn it on. Mine was purchased in Sept. '07 and just yesterday went RROD. Less than one year old. Crap, I tell ya.

I followed all suggested precautions, kept it cool, etc......crap.

I keep mine setting on the original box so it has some air flow and I always keep my box fan in my room facing it so it has no reason to overheat.

I got my 360 the day they came out and have yet to have a problem with it. Just luck of the draw i guess....

The best way to prevent the Red Rings Of Death (RROD) is to never purchase a Xbox 360 console in the first place and go for the much better Playstation 3 :thumbsup:
