if I remember correct not every Halo 3 360 is 65nm, only the ones with different heatsink(lot 734 I think, without heatpipe)

[edit]some of the guys in the forum are making the same observation

Mu5afir3646d ago (Edited 3646d ago )

No, from what I understand all of the Halo 3 limited Edition consoles have the 65nm chipset. And some of the Elite / Pro systems have them, you might be confusing the two.

Also the poster confirms that it is a 360 with the Falcon chipset.

ShiftyLookingCow3646d ago

of course I am not sure, but according to xbox forums, I remember some people being glad at first they got the Halo 3 console only to come back and say they have the heatpipe and a different lot #

Why would some halo systems have them and not others? The only logical explanation would be if they were manufactured in different locations.

jackfatal3646d ago

how many people in here bought the x360 more than once? so totally how much money u spent on just the console?

ThaGeNeCySt3645d ago

I bought 1 system on launch day, and still works 2day

Damn you Microsoft! I want to feel confident in knowing I can by your product and not have problems later. I want to play the games I just don't want to have to deal with the headache that comes with them. I guess you can't always get what you want.

Does that mean we have to wait for 45nm CPUs to come out?

cheatmaster283646d ago

No it means MS doesnt give a flying crap about making a system that works.

hfaze3646d ago

That I primarily do my gaming on my PS3, and have the 360 and Wii for their (good) exclusives only...

Microsoft is taking a beating in the hardware department... This is their first custom hardware architecture, and it is plagued with issues.

Microsoft is going to have to do their homework on their next XBox and make sure things like this don't happen again...

SuperSaiyan43646d ago

The GPU is what is overheating not the CPU, also there is no official confirmation that these even have the new 65nm CPU!! You have to take off the heatsink and try and look at the CPU to know for sure.

ShiftyLookingCow3646d ago

well according xbox forums the ones without heatpipe consume significantly less electricity that seems to confirm 65nm CPU

Alvadr3646d ago

Jeeez, will MS ever get this s**t sorted. Seriously, I mean come on!

Im going to wait at least another 6 months before thinking about a purchase.

Odion3646d ago

wow this is weak, a picture is not proof, and until we can actually prove that every Halo Console has the chipset A FREAKING PICTURE MEANS NOTHING

Sovannah Phum3646d ago

this picture is worth a lot more to me than your reasoning ability.

This is EXACTLY why MS is able to get away with pumpimg out BS hardware. It never ceases to amaze me how much and how often people who own 360's make RROD some kind if made up conspiracy theory.

If your a 360 fan be a 360 fan. Take the good with the bad but at the same time stop acting like your fellow 360ers arent going through it with their consoles bricking. Its akmost a slap in the face to them because while your over here talking about whats made up, some dudes pissed bcuz his system has failed.

My cousin, who's also my room mate is on his 3rd 360 and his brother is on his 3rd. In all fairness, this dudes core bricked, and it was repaired/or refurb but he also got the elite in addition to having the core.

Seriously though, people are acting brain washed over this RROD and it makes it easier for MS to give their fanbase the loooooooooooooooong shaft because instead of contesting this sh!t, you guys are saying its ok is my systems bricks and even worse you guys wont even acknowledge or believe thats your fellow a-alikes 360's are bricking.

My cousin is a Xbox360 Fanatic but this dude, as well as my other cousin are quick to admit that MS hardware is waaaay to faulty.

If you guys are man enough to brag about how Halo3 owns(It Does) and how many great games there are for 360(there are), be man enough to face the cons. RROD does exist so stop sh!tting on your fellow 360'by failing to acknowledge what they very well go through.

Of course not every 360 has bricked, no one said 100% of all 360's brick but just because it didnt happen to you that doesnt mean it hasnt happen to the next man. It has and i have seen numerous cases with own eyes and have nothing to gain from lying or makin up things as I like ALL 3 console. Peace
