  1. Wow first lead-free victim: Microsoft Xbox 1 billion damage, what MS did to fix it, hot glue secrets?

    I must personally say that this Xbox cooling configuration is the most idiotic I have ever seen.
    It looks as they first designed the case they wanted, then the PCB, and finally
    added the cooling.

    The use of hot glue may be a sign the BGA balls melted and the chip shifted position.
    Glueing is a solution? ;-)
