My X Box 360 died the other day but is living again....

C Pav

Codename: GB6
It died on me last week and I got the 3 red lights of DEATH. I tried a few times to restart it but no go. I found a fix for it here:

I replaced the CPU clips with the screw and washer and it is now working great.

Observations? Microsoft makes crap products and need to make a more reliable product and why pay $150 to repair a system when out of warranty when I can do it myself.
