don;t bother replacing thermal compound, since it's not a paste. Will make no practical benefit. Trust me with this one.

A bit late now as I've already redone the paste. Got one fully working. Number two is working except for a mechanical issue with the DVD drive. looking into that now before I move on to number three :)

Thanks. Two are working. The third  board powers on automatically when you connect power and the power button will not turn it off. Aside from that it will work and play a game so I'm trying to figure out what that issue is.

      X3 install  with the push button panel on the front. It will not boot to MS Dash if I push and hold the power button. It quickly flashes red then switches to blue and boots to UnleashX. If I load the X3 menu (hold white button on startup) and select "Reboot With X3 Mod Disabled" it works perfectly - boots to MS Dash. I can also reach the MS Dash by selecting it from the UnleashX menu. Why won't the power button bypass function correctly?

      I stored my xbox in a closet for several months and when I tried to play it again it first showed me error code 08, then I opened it up and moved a few things around and when I tried it again it showed up as error code 12. It seems to switch back and forth from one to the other, I’m not sure if it’s the disc drive that’s bad, the hdd or the cable that connects to both. It worked fine before. I can hear the disc drive read discs when I put one in and the hdd working.

      What is the average temperature of a modded Xbox (at boot and after playing for 1 hour, just an example ) ?
      Does the temperature get higher if games are played from HD or discs ?
      What to do if it's too high / how to change the fan settings to reduce the temperature (in Slayers 1.7 or other dashboards like XMBC or Unleash, etc...) ?
      Is there any other setting to check in order to keep the temperature stable or lowest as possible?
