Default Re: Xbox 360 Xenon Motherboard Capacitor Replacements?

Thanks for the reply a couple of other questions which heat sink compound? i have artic siver five or Arctic Silver Ceramique Thermal Compound im not sure which ones the best? also as i have a spare top cover ive saw a youtube video and also reece mentioned it about cutting a square in the top plastic and mount a fan on blowing onto the gpu whats your thoughts? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TP1eANg66_U
this is a spare xbox of mine so just want to get it running and use it firstly too see how long a reflow can last and practice on the games lol.
I will bend the original x clamps too add a little more pressure, i had to make a tool to remove them lol as i didnt want to slip with a screw driver removing them so modded a old xclamp as i had a spare.
