Trying to fix my RROD, I booted up, and after taking the console apart, and booting up it seemd to be ok.
obviously this didn't last, and after trying to play a game, it froze again after about 5 mins.
I then got 1 ring of death and a E74 error.
I wanted to buy the RROD kit from neo but they are out of stock (i will wait)
It just tried cleaning the sinks, then re-applying artic silver.
after putting it back together (replacing the xclamps) I managed to unhouse a few capacitors soldering, and bent the board a bit, (those clamps are a f*ker to get back on)
I resoldered the capacitors back, but when booting I still get E74 and 1 ring.
Is this purely down to the CPU and GPU seating of the heatsinks, and would the RROD fix this, should I also get a heat gun on it, or is this in such a bad way that I may have broke components?
I'm not spending anything on the RROD kit, if it's a lost cause.
any help appreciated.
