Instructions were easily followed.
Tools were helpful, could use personal tools instead - That would be like taking a flat head to a Phillips head screw....it'll still work but the proper tool is always best.
Compound is effective.
But all in all, it was the simplicity of it all that I believe helped this work out for me.
A savy technician would have no problem with this.
But as I said, not all tools or products will solve your individual issue. Personal research is recommended for proper outcome.
Good product, well surprised by results.
Def recommended for E74 RROD issue.
After a few months the red ring came back - and it's worse than ever. No amount of fiddling/restarting/etc. works now, it's a dead unit. Purchased a replacement, and put this one out to pasture...
Works as needed - but you'll want (as others have noted in other reviews) a 1/4" driver for taking out the studs on the heatsinks, as well as a decent strength flat-head screwdriver in order to pop the brackets off the studs.
i used the ifixit tutorial rather than the one they provided - as it has a bit more detail and i think better pictures. the difference with the walkthroughs is the ifixit one assumes you have a full kit, including heatsinks or new pads for the RAM chips. besides that, it's basically the same thing.
the opener tool is a bit weak - and bends really easily, so be careful using it as anything other than popping off the back case bits.
screws and washers worked perfect - i have giant hands and pretty good fine motor/hand/muscle control, so the part where you need to hold the board and the heatsinks and all 4 screws with washers on them wasn't too hard. i could see that being a major sticking point for somebody though - if you have two people it would be a little easier perhaps, but having so many hands/fingers in one place could also make it worse.
in all, it fixed my console - although i had to run it for a while after putting it all back together with a RROD, then shut it down, restart it again and run it longer with the RROD some more, then it worked flawlessly afterwards. the key word in all this is patience. takes a bit to get the console apart, and then to get the big bits back together. the remainder of putting it all back together is easy and quick...all-in-all, probably a 60-90 minute job for a capable person who's never done it.
I probably didn't really need any of the packaged components, but Arctic Silver is pricey around here and Lowe's was out the necessary hardware. Included is a thermal material remover, which is nothing more than repackaged goo-off, and you can you use isoproponyl rated at 70% or higher as an alternative. I have never used a thermal surface purifier to prep my chips for thermal paste but a bottle is included as well. My one qualm is with the Xbox console bracket. While it was very helpful for pulling the outer shell of the console apart; the tip of the bracket was worthless for reaching hidden releases. It would often bend before releasing an actual clip. I was worried too much stress would cause it to break off into the console and instead I opted for a very thin cold punch
It was nice that the seller included additional hardware, as I dropped a nylon washer on the floor to be lost forever in nylon-colored carpet. I would recommend this kit to anyone looking to fix the RRoD; mine went from 3 Red Rings to Green without much of a challenge.
