Kinect Causing RROD
By: ThePauseMenu (January 5, 2011 At 6:14 pm EST)
Its been reported that Kinect MAY be causing 360s to RROD. "Red Ring of Death" for you non-gamers.RROD is the instance when your console overheats and the GPU is warped away from the motherboard. In human-speak that means total system failure. I've lost 8 360s to this problem.

The problem with the Launch 360s, called "Xenons", was that the GPU was placed directly underneath the DVD drive. As games and movies sped up and got hot the console couldn't control the heat and the metal clamps holding the GPU down into the motherboard would warp and cause the GPU to disconnnect from the system. The only way you could fix was to either send it to Microsoft Offices in PA, AZ, or TX and in 3-7 weeks you could get a new or fixed console (for $99.99 or free with warranty), OR you could open up the casing and sauder yourself some new brackets for your GPU if you had the know-how.

After Millions of dollars were spent in repairing and replacing 360s Microsoft re-arranged the motherboard for the 360 and released NEW consoles called "Jaspers."
