After it too having long exposure to elevated temperatures, the solders become brittle and develop hair-line cracks that are almost irreparable. It isn’t until the hair-line cracks form that you get the red ring of death.
My friend's 360 RRoD'd and had to buy a new one. He'll donate me his old one so I can fix it. Basically the X clamp on the heatsink is too tight and cause the wrap when it gets overheated. By putting on new bolts and washers you can rescue your dead 360. Over 900 people have succeeded rescuing their xbox so that's a pretty good odd Viols warranty obviously but with new faster and quieter fans it'll probably have a longer life than the 'repaired' ones M$ send back.

Ok, shut the fuck up and tap capslock will ya.

You have gotten RoD. The little performance that is left will go away shortly. If I were you I'd do the towel trick, and get my GTA fix that way. Then send it into repairs when you've had the game for a couple of weeks.

I was going to get the 360 version but i ordered the ps3 version! I think i made a wise choice (Multiplayer on 360 = i get a lot of lag for some reason. PS3: Ultra Fast No Lag
