    Im expecting them any day now but i have a release day 360 and haven't gotten any red ring save for the one time i plugged the brick in in the wrong order and the xbox had a power error.(picky thing mine is) I have an intercooler but removed it because the fans started to go bad and it sounded like a dieing cat, so loud i had to turn my TV up over 50% to hear the fastropes on Rainbowsix Vegas. The intercoolers that run off the main power cause the red rings if you plug it in to the cube before you plug it in the wall most of the time. I say get one of the cooler bases that uses a usb port and has 4 more on the front of it. Microsoft has fixed the issue with the newer ones but not everyone has 350$ to go get a new 360 so their gunna be fixing them for a while. But look on the brightside, you get the red ring and send it to Microsoft, they sent you a totaly new system, they stoped sending referbs cuz they sometimes had issues and Microsoft wouldnt take it if you sent one in once already. Youd have to pay to get it fixed a second time.

    The bad thing about getting a new one is, all our memory is lost.

    your not supposed to send your harddrive with it, if you do they normaly sendit back with the new system, thats why when you call them for the information they tell you not to send the harddrive with it.

    Its not all lost! the EEprom is still hard coded into the Xbox internal flash rom, along with your live account (For the original xbox thats the case atleast.)

    I suggest sending it in,sure it might take awhile ,but you get 3 years of extra warrenty . plus the sooner you send it in the the fasters you get to play it , plus if they break it send it in again, its better than breaking your xbox messin around with it

    As long as you don't open it or pour a liquid on it, I don't possibly see how it would void your warrenty. Unless if you managed to hook it up to a car battery...

    if you open the case it voids the warranty or atleast with the playstation it does. When people return it if it has been opened there is a thing that pops up on the case that says voided cause they ruined the warranty. So do not open or try and repair the system yourself cause you loose the warranty than.

    and u might ose your memory if u send it in

    Not if you have a harddrive, in which case you hold onto it. The few dozen bucks for a 12gig drive is waaaaaaay worth it, never have to worry about save space, get to put music and movies on, etc.

    Just upgrade it.... The only thing protecting it is the fact that the XBox/360 hard drive is locked.
