Had the Red Ring of Death problem on a ~3.5-year-old XBOX 360.
The repair went very well, probably the most difficult step was disassembly of the XBOX for the first time. Also holding the heatsink, 8 spacers, 4 washers, all while turning the screws with a driver was a bit of a balancing act. Repair worked as advertised.
Mineral spirits and cotton swabs work the best for old thermal grease removal. I tried a bunch of solvents and found that to work the best by far. I think correct heatsink spacer placement is critical to the success of the repair, it will ensure uniform pressure on the chip faces.
