xbox 360 overheated! (pics)
show user profile  Bobbyboy
Hey all, I don't post nearly often enough any more, but I've been meaning to post these up for weeks now. My xbox red ringed ages ago, so I decided to show it what it really means to overheat! :D

Took 1500 sparklers to fill it to the top with powder, had to disassemble the who box and tape up loose holes, then rebuilt it like new and added a wick :D

I also have a video, but haven't gotten around to editing it yet

To anyone who has ever had one of these pieces of shit red ring on you, I hope you enjoy these!

What do you mean by sparklers? in the UK they are sticks you light and wave about...

...but I cant see how you would get power from then other than scraping the sides off but 1500 of those would take days!

Except for the nasty chemicals you sent in the atmosphere, nice pics.

I thought just like Grotey: scraping 1500 sparklers? Phew..

lol, yep, those are the sparklers I used, first tried hitting them with a hammer but eventually found the quickest way was to simple twist a large bunch in your hands, worked pretty well. Still took a few hours

I did think about simply using black powder, but thought this would look cooler :D

The video is awesome too, will post it soon hopefully :)

You use IE for things other than downloading FF?

Impressive! Well done sir!

lol@grotey-I must admit I haven't used IE for anything other than downloading FF in a long time.

It works in IE for me.

edit: on my old XP 32-bit machine, NOT on the 7 64-bit one. Weird.

Would've been better if you pretended that was your child/younger siblings X-Box 360, and that since they behaved really badly this year, Santa was going medieval-pyromaniac on their favourite toy.

Still, cool nontheless.

Really Nice Photo's too, 5th one is epic.
You know you could have possibly fixed the XBOX with a heat gun though right?
