Re read what you just wrote.
Here I'm going to quote the important part.
So now , we know that they replaced the cpu with a cooler running cpu . 90nm to 65nm.
So thats reducing the problem of heat.
We know they changed the exhaust fans to higehr quality fans that move more air and less decibels . Thus reducing the problem of heat.
We also know that they improved the heat sink design . Thus its able to absorb more heat and vent it more efficently .
So the heat problem is largely gone. We also know they modified the x clamp design on the elite , pro and arcade versions with the hdmi port. They have added a glue type deal to the outskirts of the clamp .
If you also notice websites are not reporting any falcon failures. With the older units they were all over the rrod problem and were treating it as if they were fox news covering obama cheating on his wife with a white racest that he was paying 4k a night to sleep with .
these storys have all but dried up .
so we know alot . The only reports i have heard of failing systems come from before august 07 units . August 07 aren't even the falcon systems , they are simply the ones with the new heatsinks .
I guess in another year as reports of rrod further die off we will hear this dropped ?
