well turns out that those halo 3 edition xbox 360s have had the new cpu die size in them all along, yet MS stayed silent about this.

im glad i got mine, now i wont feel like a moron buying old hardware.

i know this might be old news, but was wondering how everyone felt about this.

Does anyone know if there is any concrete proof that these new 65nm Falcon boards have helped the situation yet? I think they've been out for a few months now.

Unless they've added heat sinks and better thermal paste to the CPU and GPU sockets on the motherboard in addition to the new 65nm CPU chip, I can't imagine the situation will improve that much.

But what the Hell do I know? I hope the situation improves, as I'm tired of replacing the goddamn thing or sending it in to be repaired.

They say you can tell by the power supply. If your has the 203watts it is the old chip if it has the 175watts it is the new one. Not sure about that I would like to think that my august hdmi system has a new one. I wish there was an easy way to tell.
