I got my 360 from the Mountain Dew Every Ten Minutes contest on the 19th so it was one of the very first ones and it has had the RROD twice. about 2 months apart from each other while playing COD

I got my Xenon 6 months after launch. I got an Intercooler the same day. I ran it for 1 month then got a Whisper fan, heatsinks for the memory and bridge, and did the RBJTech cooling mods. It ran perfectly for 10 months, then failed. I took a 1 year break from society and when I came back home I got a Falcon and did the same cooling mods to it. Its been 5 months now and everything is good. I can run games for hours and the GPU heatsink is only warm to the touch, CPU heatsink isnt generating heat at all.

when i first was trying to get a 360 in the winter of 06 i think i had 9 or 10 in a row that had the RRoD. Some were ruined right out of the box, others took 1 or 2 days to eff up. I swapped them out, then got exchanges and went to a different store, same luck. Then the 11th one RRoDed on me a few months back, so now I have one with the Benq drive(newer) and hopefully wont conk out on me.

PS This is a great poll (normally I complaining about this poll is stupid, just thought I'd give some positive feedback as to this poll people can actually answer as they have some experience of it).
That last poll What do you think of the new xbox experience was really dumb because no one even had it (most people still don't, only people who've modded their 360s).

I'll just point out that most people who think they have a Falcon often don't - many equate the Elite to the Falcon without checking the power rating.

You MUST have a power rating of 175w on your 'brick' to confirm that it's a falcon.
If it's 203 - it's a Zephr.

Owned a Xenon - From launch date and it died years ago. So I bought a new one and it came with a Falcon; However, this one died too (less than a year of use). I decided to buy a RRoD kit and settled with the one from llamma (nuts + bolts _ Bought 4). Installed the kits and they both work perfect. However, I only tested to see if they played games and turned them off. In the meantime, im going to buy cooling kits to (like the talismoon fans) to help reduce heat.

I have v1 and didn't have RRoD too. But as some had this problem - mine stopped reading game discs after ~year (TS). Now I have BenQ and it works like a charm smile.gif
