So I ordered this kit. Took about 1 week to arrive. Cam in a small manilla envelope and the parts were in small plastic bags. Came with "generic" cleaner and purifier that smelled a lot like lemon juice, much like you clean stainless steel grills off with. The cleaner bottle came with the sides squeezed in. No liquid escaped though. The kit included a website that you navigate to to get to the instruction PDF. The book wasn't as detailed as expected and some things you would have to imagine such as prying the X-Clamp off.
I have had previous knowledge on installing parts on and disassembling the Xbox 360. Following the instructions, it took about 25-30 minutes to install this kit. the T8 screwdriver was a bit small. Seemed like a T7 and could have caused stripping of the screws if you dont have an regular sized screwdriver.
As stated in a previous review, the screws attach through the motherboard and not the metal casing. The screws slightly raise the motherboard up causing you to tighten down the metal casing screws causing potential bowing. Also uses the overheating method to the GPU, which is potentially hazardous.
Console works like a charm for now. Will attempt to update if problems arise. I assume the last reviews haven't had issues, I shouldn't.
The Low Down: Pros- $20 for a $200 system repair.
- All tools included needed. No soldering, no hardware mod.
- Includes Arctic Silver 5, an amazing heat dissapating compound I use on my Intel Core i7.
Cons- Causes bowing in the motherboard
- Instructions needs internet and are at times unclear.
- Uses overheating method which may cause worse problems.
4/5 Rating, Recommended.
If I had any complaint about the kit it would be the lack of instructions included in the box. It's not a big deal really, but all that's included in a piece of paper with the url to an online PDF repair guide. The guide itself is easy enough to follow, but I would recommend looking up a video tutorial on YouTube to help you out with some of the more confusing parts of the guide.
All in all it's a great buy. It fixed my Xbox 360 and saved me having to pay $100 or more for Xbox to repair the system for me. Not bad at all for $15!
The guide was very good at most parts, but it was extremely vague about removing the screws from the heatsink (you need a torque wrench). I needed to look at other guides (available online) to see what to do at that stage in the repair process.
After repairing it, I got the RROD again in about a month. I used this same kit to try and fix it again, and, unfortunately, it did not work. I even tried the alternative bake and 12 cent methods like the guide mentions, but to no avail. Maybe my four year old Xbox 360 was just too old and beyond repair.
Even if my Xbox 360 worked forever, I still would have given this review 3 or 4 stars due to the small Torx T8 tool (and requiring me to go to the store to buy a new one).
