So it finally happened. My first Xbox 360 bit the dust. When I first got it I heard nothing but bad things. The main issue being heat-related malfunctions. So when I got it, I immediately tore it down to bare mobo and replaced the thermal paste with Arctic Silver and rewired the rear fans to run a constant 12 volts. All has been well until now. Seven years after it rolled off an assembly line in some underpaid region of China, I have gotten my first error. The E73 has appeared to ruin my console. Luckily I have another on hand to play on, so I’m not too disgruntled. It lasted a lot longer than most from that first generation, and I can’t complain about that. My original Xbox, on the other hand, is still running like a champ. That’s what happens when you don’t rush stuff, Microsoft… And now the news.
