    A few times there was a red light glowing at startup bt now it hangs or freezes aftr running abt a few minutes. I suspect thr s a heating issue. But wat shud i do abt it? Itsa 2006 model so out of warranty.

    Waiting fr ur reply. Thanx in advance.

    Enjoy~!

    Just pray you get one of the Falcon models as a replacement. It should possibly reduce the chances of an RRoD compared to their old 2006 batch.

    RROD is less in jasper model but not completely over , unless u make some cooling needs - get 4 120m cooler master fans modd ur Xbox side panel connect it with simple SMPS for 300/- this is blow maximum AIR - so more cool - we did it for our friend , he plays 20 hrs per day since working perfectly

    Dude I'm not a newbie here. A Jasper won't be provided as a replacement for his old core console. It would either be a old stock that they would replace it with or a fairly upgraded one, which would be Falcon. Plus we don't even have any sign of Jasper based boards out here in India. Most of the recent Arcade models have a manufacturing date of Dec 2008. So they could either be Jasper or Falcon models.
