    Its caused by alot of different things but the main problem is the 360's overheat and the cheap metal on the motherboard would melt.

    The new consoles have better material and better heatsinks so they don't heat up as much anymore.

    Haha. You guys are funny. It is dubbed as "General Hardware Failures" and generally is caused by what T3k said.

    Also they are constantly developing new motherboards and CPU/GPU set-ups to help the 360 run cooler and more efficiently. With the newest batch there is a much lower failure rate than that of the originals. Also you are backed by a 3 year warranty from Microsoft, so if it does happen you can get it fixed for free.

    its not from overheating. ive had my 360 running 14+ hours straight playing gears of war non stop and it didnt overheat in a closed room.

    i then turned it on another time and 10 minutes later it RROD'd, its from the shit that keeps the pieces inside together, sauder? or something.. coming undone. they used a real cheap kind and didnt do it very well when they first made it.

    I keep mine sideways and the "bottom" is cool all the time. Plus the back is only warm, not ready to nuke my apartment.

    Dude you have 3 year warranty on it, chillax. What version of Xbox? Definitely 360. I guess you could get a fan.

    I got nothing...

    No, Microsoft's 3 year warranty is 100% free, at Microsoft's own cost.. If they made you pay for it, they'd be d*cks as it's their fault for the 360's early batches being so faulty.. My own 360 elite is yet to RROD yet. Owned it for a bit more than a year, so I'm going strong.. for now.
