It had the RROD
pretty easy, removing the x-shaped spring loaded things on the other side of the motherboard under the heatsinks was the hardest part.
It seems to have worked, I haven't played any games but we have played DVDs and have done several hours of netflix streaming.
It really feels weird to put that much force on the x-braces underneath the motherboard to free time.
I would have liked to see some compression washers, though the provided plastic ones might accomplish the same thing.
Be careful removing the white fan shroud thing that funnels air through the heatsinks, I broke the clip on mine but duct taped it more or less in place upon reinstallation.
Make sure you have something to remove the existing thermal compound, my wife's nail polish remover is all natural.. so I needed something a bit stronger, in my case i just used a lot of elbow grease and it all seems fine so far.
