Those that have done the x mod or screw mod to yuor Xbox 360

How long do they typically last after the mod? Apparently I was missing a sticker on mine that was never there since I bought it, so gamestop wouldn't trade it in for a functional value. They only offered non-working trade in value. So I will be keeping this one until it gives out again. I took it apart, cleaned and replaced all thermal paste with artic silver, and did the screw mod. How long can I expect this unit to last?

Mine went out after 6 months and then I did the x clamp mod and it worked about another year and a half then went out again. I think thermal past and clamps are only part of the problem, the newer system have more efficient heat sinks and I bet cutting some holes on the side and putting some 120mm fans would really make a difference.

THey even make water cooling setups for xboxs as well.

Mine lasted 2 days. But it's hard to say, I've heard some last 2 years.
