This is the overheating code for the Xbox 360 slim for the CPU/GPU unit.

"I overheated my 360 and when it overheated the airflow temp was a 69C.
Also you get the seccondary error codes the same way as a regular 360.
Also it has green leds not red lol.
And differant error codes 0122 is now the new overheating code.

My xbox 360s. I have checked the usb ports none of the pins is touching the
casing. My power supply gives 12v and shows green light when switched on. The
motherboard doesnt have any cracks on connections. New thermal paste has been
done on cross and chip. What can still be faulty please.

down the sync button and pressed the eject button to give me the error code

You cannot get a 0006 error because there are only 4 lights in the ring.

Hey i had a overheating problem with the slim. Now getting a 0006 error or
summit. Yes i have applied thermal paste. Does the slims need paste or not as it
has a circle copper plate which would sit on the fan which would cool the xbox
on the XCGPU what ever it is called on the slim.
