A little while ago, I wrapped my 360 in a wood Oblivion Xbox 360 skin. Lately, I've been getting more RROD's than usual. I'd be in the midst of a game and it'd shut off with three red flashing red rings. I've had the Nyko Intercooler on my Xbox for the last couple years and, I thought, would make the RROD problem go away. Apparently not. So today, I took off the Intercooler.
Picture is of the Intercooler.
Nice scorch marks there.

Nice! Without the Intercooler, my Xbox doesn't turn on. With the Intercooler it runs for a couple minutes. As you can see, there's obvious burnt plastic. When I took the Intercooler off (which was a bit hard because it melted), bits of crap (best way to describe it) fell off. Looked sort of like dried up snot actually...
This is my second Xbox now and I'm pretty sure I can't send it back now, so, I'm screwed.
