    Hi, I'm in possession of a friends elite which is suffering from rrod. He had it "fixed" at an indy shop but they did a half arsed job of the x-clamp repair and it rroded after a couple of months.

    I got it up and running after doing the job properly (so I thought) but it promptly rroded after about an hour. A week later I've stripped it down again and given it a good blast of heat but now when I boot it I get the green power light (no green ring of life) then 2 minutes later rrod again. I was careful with the heat gun. Could I have fried the chipset?

    Any solutions?
