RROD 2 sector.

So, I have just won a 360 on Ebay for 99p.

It has a 2 sector RROD, which is a heat issue I understand...

Is this an easy fix?

Seems from a quick google search its a common problem, but I thought I would see if anyone here has fixed a 2 sector RROD and how easy it was...

Re: RROD 2 sector.

Yes, I've done it. It's surprisingly easy. You can find links to show you in detail how to do it so I'm not going to bother going all through it I've not kept the link I used I'm afraid. Google is your friend.
Basically it involves stripping the whole thing down. Removing the heat sinks and then reflow the solder on the motherboard with a heat gun. Reassemble with Arctic Silver or similar and Robert is your Mother's brother.

Yes, just a standard diy type heat gun. Ours is a Bosch.
