    hybrid? whats that?
    the thermal paste fix no good then?

    You replaced the X clamp with new bolts and washers?

    Do you have the AV cable plugged in?

    If not plug it in, have the top of the case off and rest the fan over the DVD drive and the visible heatsink so that it's cooling that heat sink. Turn it on for half hour, if you get three red lights that's good, just leave it alone.

    After 30 minutes turn it off, leave it for 15 minutes to cool and then put the fans and fan shroud back and test it again.

    No it doesn't matter how long you leave it after applying the paste, follow these steps and it's more than likely to fix it.

    Plug in AV and Mains cable
    Remove fan shroud and rest fan half over DVD drive and half over the visible heatsink
    Tur console on, it may work but you'll likely get 3 red lights. Leave for 30 minutes.
    Turn off, leave for 15 minutes to cool
    Put everything back together normally and test

    Make sure the AV Cable is plugged in :thumbsup:

    Yes mate, it may get a bit noisy but that's OK, even if it works fine just leave it for 30 minutes anyway :thumbsup:

    Good luck! I'm just downloading Splinter Cell Conviction demo. I'll tell ya what it's like!

    anyone else tried the hybrid fix working a treat for me

    I've not, it doesn't look like it is worth the extra effort. I find the normal fix very reliable.

    If my jtag'd console got it I may look into it more but probably not.
