oh dear brooksie.. I can guarrantee it'll break again in a few weeks, mine broken once, sent it back got it back in 2 weeks exactly.. works a complete dream.. The towel trick as said before just breaks other stuff... I dont understand why people bother.. Just send it back and get one

THAT WILL NOT BREAK AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!

providing they send you a new mobo as opposed to just fixing it. Send it back as soon as possible, say its playing up every now and again.

For a PC enthusiast i would think you be more smarter than that, as being the 360 is a PC in itself. I sure hope thats sarcasm.

I can just see it now -

User - Hello my new motherboard that i bought the other day for my PC is not working, it seems to overheat then switch off, the board looks warped, can i have an RMA number please.

Tech support - You dont need an RMA just yet, what we need to you to do is wrap it up in a towel so it is completely smothered, switch it on for half an hour and that should sort the issue.

User - Hello did I just ring PC world by mistake?

Seriously. If you wouldnt wrap your PC in towels then why would you wrap a machine with more cooling problems then a Prescott P4 in towels?

I thought MS extended the warranty to 3 years for all consoles, because of this very problem?
