    :lease: I am now on my third 360 since march 06, the first lasted 8 months the second 1 month & both died the same way.
    The console itself stopped & froze completely leaving white snow on the screen over the game image & the controller became totally useless meaning I had to turn the box off at the main power button.
    Is this caused perhaps by overheating? I have been known to play the thing for up to 10 hours at a time. The fault is not predictable as it can & usually happens at the most inapropriate time.
    I'm now trying a base cooling stand with the x box standing vertical, does anyone have any experiance with these devices? If so are they any good?
    I'm a bit concerned about using my 360 now as I'm not sure what is causing this fault.
