Since the problem is apparently tied to models with a hard drive, it may very well be.

true.. I haven't touched my xbox360 since I got back on steam mearely with a core2duo.
and now that I've tried (a non-steam game) starcraft 2 and found that it automatically defaults all options to Ultra, why would I even need to bother with 360 any more? PC is just as or more fun than a 360. and no monthly fee on top of paying monthly for internet access already.

Back in 2005, it was a full generation ahead of PC hardware... (unified shaders on the GPU, 10 MB eDRAM die).
So enough with the console-bashing already. I have a pretty capable laptop, but I still play on my Xbox 360 more.
Also, considering that for $200 you can play a game that looks as fantastic on the Xbox 360 as Final Fantasy XIII or Mass Effect 2, it's quite a steal.
Awesome mod but you shouldn't have to do this to a console. I went PC long ago and happy I am there. Better graphics and I don't have to deal with RRoD or trying to figure out how to keep my XBox from breaking. PC always wins.

Any system intrusion and tampering can possibly get you banned from xbox live. It has been debated that the system can tell if it has been opened up but generally just if you power it on while the DVDROM is unplugged. So in that case, it should be fine as long as you plug everything back in after it had been opened up.

Man, I wish a SC2 beta invite would make its way to my inbox. Still itching to put that game through its paces.
Agree with fluffycakes..shouldn't have to do this to a console; it's not in my opinion, a solution..just a bodge-job. I think MS should simply release a better case at no extra cost to existing users. It's not like they can't afford to do it. I still like this console, just don't relish the idea of bashing the case to bits to fix a problem MS should have fixed for good ages ago (in my opinion).
