it takes some serious heatgun-overkill or violence to break those off. and chances are the contacts are damaged too. I doubt this is fixable.

That is ridiculous. How does someone manage to do that? Definitely done on purpose. If I were you I'd part it out, no way that is fixable unless you are "THE" god at soldering.

i know that this is bad i got the board like this good job it didnt cost anything would you belive that he know admits he tryed a heat gun fix when got red ring!!!!

what a fool like a know this may be sound wrong but do u think microsoft are stupid enough to take this item back if i made back to original state? and carefully hide the chip loss with thermal paste?? as i have got a warranty sticker? i have nothing to lose if the wont fix it? as i didnt pay anything?

yeah, MS will certainly not notice a gigantic blob of a different thermal paste all over the GPU.

well a bit the bullet and got in-touch with microsoft. about a console repair. sad.gif booked a slot sent it off to frankfurt germany on 10/10/08 and today 19/10/08 sure enough ups where at the door with a nice new refurbished elite with a nice new 1 year warranty and new warranty sticker and supporting letter stating that they found that the dvd and motherboard required attention and due to the run up to christmas they have replaced them with brand new parts free of charge pmsl at microsoft 1-0 to the modders laugh.gif least there trying with the new warranty stickers that peel off just as well as the old ones with abit heat!! ohmy.gif so im know up another console and this cost me a whole week of waiting and 0.00p cool.gif
