3 Rlod, Is There Any Way To Avoid It?

Some people opt for replacing the x-clamps right away, as this should eliminate the cause of the 3RLoD in the first place. Your call.
What I would do, is make sure the console is properly cooled, doing the shroud mods, adding heatsinks to the ram, etc etc, should help make it last longer.
Of course, if your console is still in it's warranty period, then don't do squat and let microshaft fix it when the time comes.

But to answer your question, here are some things you can do if you don't care about warranty:
replace the main fans with Talismoon Whisper fan
do the fan shroud mod but use metal/aluminum duct tape instead (works heaps better, trust me. just dont get it on your mobo!)
add an extra fan on the CPU heat sink and a second blowing towards/underneath the DVD drive for the GPU heat sink (both fans can be powered from the front fan header, which is another tutorial available here)
Consider doing the 12v fan mod, at least to one of the fans anyway (preferably the GPU fan)
add a 3rd fan to the mobo underside (drill hole in metal case and plastic case, then add new rubber feet for airflow underneath the 360)
X-clamp replacement (I would only do if you actually have the 3RLOD)
Thermal replacement (remove old paste on gpu and cpu, and replacement AS5 or some other good brand)
