    umm, a friend of mine put a FAN on the side of the xbox (near the front usb ports are) after it got the 3 RRoD. He decided to clean it and look what he got:





    Is this gonna fuck M$ warranty?, the sticker are intact...or he just have to play it like it never happen?

    That's pretty bad.. Is that corrosion? If the place is Air Conditioned, that is where it condensated, and caused the corrosion, then that's a problem. He should have sent it back BEFORE that happened, they may not honor the warranty, but you have to try. If it's there on the outside, you can bet it's on the inside too; they call that a HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT, and may not warranty the unit...

    The Xb360 is encased in a metal shell, so, if that corroded there, under the motherboard, and bottom of the metal case would also be corroded. Never seen that before, wow...

    Yes it's corrosion... he sent it back before it happen, he got the 3 RRoD, and he thought that by putting a FAN of a Pc would help it cool of so it will not happen too soon. So he's FUCKED? and if he got the 3 RRoD again it would be his problem?

    Not sure, that's a user caused problem, not a hardware or naturally occurring thing... They would cover it, IF it has nothing to do with the failure.
