    Yes and no. Yes, the problem can still occur but it's not signified by the red rings on the slim but rather by a red dot. The slim is designed far better though so you don't see this happen very often.

    It could die, but it's supposed to shut off before it overheats. It's designed WAY better than the original 360, however. The CPU and GPU are one a single chip and the fan is directly on top of the heatsink with a grille cut in the case right there. The original 360 has two fans that sit in the back of the case and some tiny ducts connect the tiny heatsinks to the fans.

    The CPU and GPU are a unified chip, but not one "die". There are still two die on the chip, covered by the metal piece, then the heatsink.

    It looks like this (below) under the metal case:


    So, there you can see, TWO DIE, one chip.

    I got two eyes in one head, so I got ONE eye if I cover them with glasses?

    No you have four.

    I get it, they're not on one die, they're on one chip. However, the point I was going after is still true; less power usage and therefore less heat plus better cooling. They should be more reliable.
