standing up your console like that covers all of the vent holes on that side. and the other side with the hard drive doesnt have as many vent holes.

I've had my console vertical and on carpet for 8 months now with no problems. I think that sh*t is just a M-Y-T-H

I'm talking about overall, it being the cause of your Xbox failing. Just cuz you have it vertical doesnt mean its the reason (for the record, all my consoles that have red ringed were on hardwood surface and horizontal with good circulation all around)

I got my xbox 360 off of craigslist back in 06 i think. I've had the ring of death/fire like 5 or 6 times and every time it fixes with the towel method, but goes back to the ring like every few days. Im sick of this, can someone tell me the procedure to send it to microsoft to get it fixed? Im not even sure if I can return it. HELP pls thanks

^^^^^^before you send it microsoft tells you in an email dont write microsoft or xbox on the box you are sending. Im guessing for security reasons so no one tries to jack it. Im pretty sure sending the original box would fall under the "dont send a box with microsoft or xbox written on it" scheme of the matter. I thought about sending my original box as well, but they dont want people doing that apparently.
