real easy to do and very fast. I have been there. Less than 2 weeks and you will receive a 360.

sucks to hear man! Fallout 3 and dead space have been causing 360's to red ring bad after extended plays. So if you plan to get one those games be ready to start fixing it yourself or buy the intercooler. But shouldn't take long to get a boxed shipped to your house and back.

Don't talk about it! Be about it!

I've "read" doesn't mean you've actually had it mess one up. And my "friends" isn't valid either. I actually have one. And I've had one for my 360 since they first came out. If you run it with out it you can feel the heat on the top of the xbox. With it on there you can tell it runs a whole lot cooler. Mine was about $20. But also i think they made them quieter. Mine sounds really loud but i don't hear it over the game music/sound fx.

Don't talk about it! Be about it!

Yea you can't hear them over the game but you can tell its there when you are just on the menu haha. I've found it to be a sound investment

I wish mine would get the RROD LOL. I call it the glitchbox 360. It has every last thing that could possibly be wrong with it - wrong with it. All except what i could turn it in for and get a new one...
