Bingo, takes longer to read this thread than it does to do the x-clamp fix. As far as all the talk about the 65nm chips, the problem is not with CPU, it is with the GPU. The GPU gets hot and the lead-free solder begins to melt, which allows the chip to move, causing the red rings. If you can do some research and turn a screwdriver you can do the x-clamp fix and thermal paste in no time flat.
