We're excited to announce that we've fully migrated the Xbox Forums to their new home, here on the Microsoft Community forums!
As of today, going to forums.xbox.com will redirect you here to the Xbox area of the Community forums. We've moved all of your existing threads over so you can continue and start conversations with the new forums experience.
We sincerely appreciate the feedback you have provided over this transition and can't wait for you to check out the new Xbox Forums!
the RROD isn't necessarily caused by overheating, I still own a old xbox 360 elite model, which has been working without any problems since 2008. No overheating or RROD.
So in my opinion you can not simply state that the 'old' models will get a RROD
I also have an old 2007 model that has never stopped going from day one. If you know how to look after your console, keep it in a suitable area and have luck on your side, you will be fine. My Xbox has been through it's fair share of 12 hour, mid-summer
CoD4 sessions so they really can't all be that bad.
What OWEN means is that if you open your console it will be deemed as system tampering and can result in a permanent suspension. My advice (if you are experiencing overheating) would be to make sure the console has sufficient breathing space in well ventilated
surroundings or refer to my previous post and create a thread in the support forums for follow up help :)
