hi members , i am currently in the process of replacing the Thermal Compound on my Jasper (2009) XBOX 360's and Slim PS3's (2009) models. Actually 360's are done i'm now working on PS3's. I noticed with the original compound on both consoles is that it has hardly any tack feel to it , on a scale of 1 to 10 i give both consoles a 1. You should expect this on a 10 year old console , also with the 360's i've noticed that on the Chassis where the rear exhaust fans are i think it was 6 out of 7 had rust forming. It wasn't a huge amount but the process had started , i have removed the rust with sandpaper and treated it with WD-40 to prevent it coming back. I've started this thread to alert people of my findings and help their consoles last longer.
