2nd 360 here. My first died after I kept opening it and closing it to modify the skin a bunch. I also bent and stretched the motherboard beyond repair.

My 2nd one is going strong. I bought one of the newer GPU heatsinks and x-clamp fixed both CPU and GPU and applied arctic silver grease just as I got it. It hasn't given me any problems since.

It's quite shocking. Out of a very small survey here, most people are on at least no. 2. Compare that with any console that sold well, I guess props to MS for seeing a fault, extending the warranty and taking care of us. Perhaps next time they'll worry more about build quality and less about interchangeable face plates and detachable hard drives.
