So the xbox starts then after a while the picture wanishes, fan spinns faster and the leds go orange blinking. Could it be overheating? What can I do??
Tnx in advance!

if so what is the temp on evox or other dashboard
if not modded is your fans working (both if v1.0)
We need to know specifics to narrow down to a reasonable solution. FRANK

The heatsink needs to be compressed onto the chip to effectively transmit the heat or it will create a small air gap which traps the heated air. Make sure that the clip that holds the heatsink is clamping down on the mobo.

O and the GPU-heatsink is really really hot! I think I will try again tomorrow...

Ms bubble gum crap heatsink pad material is removed with some rubbing alchol and cotton swaps. Clean up the complete are. Make sure completely not half a$$ed. Then take a BB sized amount of Artic silver heatsink material and put it on the center of the cpu and gpu. Take the heatsink and place it back. Put the retaining clips back in place and dont take it apart again.
If your xbox still acts up. You can determine that its not an air space between the heatsink and the chips. You can now determine a short on the motherboard or some electronic failure.
