Recently, my Xbox 360's fan has become really loud(it spins really fast). I open it up to clean up all the dust in hope that the fan speed would go back to normal. Unfortunately, it did not. My Xbox never had any type of RROD, so my question is, should I buy the xbox repair kit or just replace the old thermal compound? In case I should buy the repair kit, will I have to do the "baking" part of the repair, as my xbox never had any type of RROD? Thanks in advance!

AS or MX-4 work perfectly fine. But I doubt that you'd need the Repair Kit, it seems like new thermal compound will take care of the loud fans for you. Hope this helps :)

Alright, thanks for the advise! I will buy some thermal compound + the unlock kit v3 to replace the old thermal compound. I will let you guys know if the fans are back to normal!
