not long at all. it will screw up sooner or later or you will screw it up while doing it. making electronic components overheat=bad. do the x-clamp fix.

think he has warranty though, so the smarter thing would be to send it in.

Remember you want it to have the RROD if you are claiming it under the extended 3 yr warranty and not the standard 1yr.

If you fix it with the towel trick temporarily... and it no longer has the RROD.. MS may not fix it for free. You may have to wait until it dies again before sending it in...
