Kompresd, Thanks for your quick help.
RDC at xbox-scene was very quick also, he told me the trace I broke wouldn't effect the Xbox 360's power on problem with 2 left red light. (Not sure yet if I can still use the 3 pin fan connection yet). The 2 left red lights was over-heating related. (Since I had thought with the torn trace, and then tested after reassembling - the 2 red lights were related to the missing 12 volts - thankfully I was wrong).
When i bought the bolts and washers to replace the x-clamps on my xbox, i bought them at Fleet Farm, then several days later, I bought for my nephew's at Ace Hardware. So I found out tonite the washers from Fleet Farm are a little thicker, after removing them and reinstalling the heatsinks - she fires up beautifully! So if I do any more Xbox x-clamp mods - I'll buy from Ace Hardware.
What a Major Relief, I'll sleep better tonite.
Oh and thanks for letting me know how to post pics - I got them up on PhotoBucket and was preparing to post back to you, when RDC had responded back first.
I was afraid I had jumped in too deep - trying to do my own fixes - but it's great to know there's others who've been there and can help quickly! Because of all the great tutorials: I've so far succesfully dremeled both xbox metal cases for better air flow, 12 volt back fans mod, x-clamp replacements, replaced my DVD, fixed the DVD in my nephew's (using his and my old DVD's parts - both Samsungs), and one 3 pin fan mod. All because of other's (like you), who paved the way first - Major Thanks!
I just need to see where else I can add a fan connector or two, inside my xbox - I want both xboxs to last... staying cool inside.
