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.
The PDF files for tearing it down and the other to do the repair are good enough for someone with low to moderate computer hardware skills. For anyone who doesn't know a lot about computer hardware I highly recommend the ifixit Xbox 360 Red Ring of Death Fix Kit repair guide. It contains more detailed images and instructions.
As far as the Microsoft heatsinks go, they are a cheap POS. You will see a lot of excess thermal paste on both the chips and the heatsink(way more than should ever be used). The best part of this kit is it comes with Arctic Silver cleaner, purifier, and paste. In my opinion Arctic Silver is the best stuff out there. For removing the paste from the heatsinks I would use a 2" cotton round pad, and standard q-tips for the chips. With the old thermal paste globs you are going to have to slowly work it off with the cleaner, being very careful on the chips to not damage any of the surface mounted electronics. Oh, and the cleaner has a very strong citrus scent.
One last thing I'd like to mention is with the supplied screws. The heads on these are a little thicker than need be, which causes them to give the motherboard a very small lift above what it should be. When I inserted the motherboard back into the case, I had to press down on the front of the board in order to get the alignment tabs and connecting peripherals to line up properly.
Overall this kit is decent, big plus on the included Arctic Silver supplies(full bottles of cleaner and purifier, and a full tube of paste), but that alone can't justify anything over 3-stars from me due to the above listed.
When I pulled this one open it was super clean inside as I expected. No dust or dirt. Just a nice clean new looking 360. I followed the instructions that I printed from the website link in the package and followed it. After getting everything installed I plugged it in as it wanted me to without putting it all the way together. Immediately I got 4 green lights and everything worked great! I waited and waited for the 2 red lights as it said but they never came, so I finally just put it all together. It has been working great since!
