hate to tell you this but sounds more like a dieing chip on the mobo
believe its the xerc? hell I am messed up with the time change rite now, somebody can correct my spelling anyway, depending on the version of your xbox, its sounding like you got a chip that when it reaches temp its done and just shuts off. since your cpu aint overheating its not flashing orange for an over heat, its the mobo shutting down not the chip.
This is affecting the v1.4 Xbox in my sig, I hope it's repairable as I added 64 megs extra RAM to it and I don't wanna have to do that job again!
I think by Xerc you might mean Xyclops? or perhaps the PIC associated with it?
