Xbox 360 Phat

Postby wshirk » Fri Oct 20, 2017 1:18 am

So i was wondering if anyone still has a working xbox 360 Phat that has not aquired the RROD. I bought my 360 phat used for 40 dollars at the Youth Ranch, and it came with everything but controllers which i had. The version i picked up, was a Falcon The one right before the Japsers, and since i bought it used i have no way of knowing if it ever has RROD before. I have had the system on briefly, within the last year, but only know have chosen to use it as my go to 360. I do not game maybe 1 hour lucky if i go more, but just wanted to know if anyone has a working 360 still. Feel free to answer the Poll, as it would be nice to see what everyone's answers are. Also note if the disc drive is caputs, and needs a new laser, then id consider it working, as i just want to see which ones are working or not due to RROD

I have a Xenon (Pro version with the chrome eject and disc tray cover) that still works great (Date: 2006-04-21). Someone found it in the trash and gave it to me not even knowing what it was, I tested and it powered up but the tray was stuck and it wouldn't read games.

It sat in my closet for years in parts before I replaced the stock heatsink with one of the later revision heatsinks and I replaced the disc drive, it works great but the drive sounds like a jet engine.

I think the key to extending the life of the older ones is to replace that skimpy block of aluminum with the later revisions heatsink that have the copper pipe with an added block of aluminum.

I have a Xenon that I'm tunning through VGA. I updated the heat sink and paste ( do they call it a V2 heatsink) and changed the stock fan to a Talismoon Whisper fan. I also installed a Wasabi so the optical drive gets no usage. Added heatsinks to the memory chips too. Still runs great. I ended up going crazy and bought 5 Wasabis, 4 for phats and 1 for the slim. I current have hooked up 3 phats (1 Xenon, 2 Jaspers), and 1 of the black slims. I have 1 spare Wasabi in the box as a backup. We have some fun with System Link games. I wish there were more System Link games like on the original xbox.

My very first 360 was a jasper & it rrod.Got a falcon real cheap (arcade model),it had an old dash so it got jtagged.Got another jasper & it too had an old dash so jtag'd that one.Then got a brand spanking new whatever model it is (came after the slims all black n shiny),still in the box (been test run) haven't decided what to do with it yet,bought it last year real dirt cheap.Nothing wrong with the falcon's as far as i'm aware as my understanding is they improved the heatsink & other stuff on them

I've had a few phats over the years and have spares (7) to pick from as I picked a load up cheap recently and have kept them, they all originally ran noisy and/or with sticking drives so I cleaned and greased the drives and replaced the thermal paste with MX-4 and gave everything a thorough clean, now I have 7 perfect machines, might do a tut on sticky drives as some of you have them.

My current 'best' one is a Black Jasper and my main spare is a Cream Jasper and all my other still fully working ones are Falcons, every 360 has Lite-On drives apart from one which is a BenQ. I run my 360 horizontally on a laptop fan stand from ebay with 22mm rubber feet on the 360 to let air get between it, nothing gets too warm anymore and I use the USB on the back.

I still have a number of freebie scrap RROD 360s but never have I had one die on me.

Nice thread wshirk.

I got a Jasper. Never once had an issue with it besides a stuck disc tray. Learned how to fix it asap as thats the easiest fix you can possibly do to a console.

I've got an original xenon about 5 years ago still working after 3 reflows, lol, first 2 reflows were done with an old machine

I also have a couple Falcons still running, never had the RR.

360's got a bad rap mainly because a lot of people didn't repair them right, heatguns or ovens are not what factories use to install chips lol, once you do a proper reflow, or sometimes a reball, then they seem to last forever with a fan mod
I think the 360 is one of the best systems made with tons of great games, I always had a blast playing online or system link, the new systems just suck I think
