before someone goes and says gaming thread

this is More of my um progress for my mod for a 360

and i plan on using this here thread to track myself and to show you my work step by friggin step

and before someone says "that'll void your warranty" i know and i dont care
i dont think i'll ever need a warranty so far ive been able to fix my 360 myself including the 3 Rings of death no problem

so heres my to do list

1.remove the slides that hold the back on and replace with hinges for easy opening
(so remove these 'highlighted in red')




and replace with something similar to this





so it just swivels after i unhook the front


2.Make a Window into Xbox
like so



3.Paint matte black

4.Add green LED's and a Green Whisper cooling fan
(will look similar but will be black and no controller LED or HDDVD drive the LED is the only similarity)





5.add Clear DVD drive cover (shown in last Pic)

6.Maybe make HDD internal??

7.Add Extra Cooling Fan for innards (green LED's of course)

8? possibly make a Multi Video/Audio out box like so



so yeah i will post pics and what i have done as i do it

..note.. no pictures used in this post were mine

Good luck man.
I think its time to pack your things lets go,
To a place where we both know,
And dont worry, I'll drive real slow,
Spend some time before we go..

Freaking epicness on the shining green XBOX.

Why doesn't Microsoft just go and make it?

yeah its actully a one day job if i have all i need

not super hard
jsut to make it look awesome
if i can i'll post pics of my friend josh's PC/360

its a old Tower with a high powered Pc
and a 360 combined

like he has two seperate power supplys in it 1 for the 360 and the other for his pc

he simply switches his VGA box to go from pc to 360

and it looks like a PC with a regular CD/DVD drive but right underneath it you see a 360 DVD drive!!

and it also has the ring of light and memory card slots on the front of the PC

I'm sure you'd get a better response in the gaming thread, but I suppose it's up to you.

Anyway, if your are voiding you warranty, I suggest replacing the DVD drive that came with the system, as it is trash.

Pics now.

For real that's so awesome!

I wish I was good at putting electronics together,
or that I had the money to mess around with them

not an option
kind of

like the drive is made specifically for the 360 therefore i would have to flash another drive so it would work

thats very time consuming

and i still plan on using live and when the fall update comes around it will notive my Drive is different resulting in a Perma-ban

Btw i have the better of the 360 drives

Ah, I see.

Well, I suppose you could open the drive up and add those rubber buffers in so that it won't destroy a disc if the 360 is knocked over. There's a Youtube video on it somewhere...

If I were to ever open up my 360, that'd be the first thing I'd do. I'm sick of the crappy disc drive scratching my discs for no reason.

im not totally sure but cant that get you permanently banned from xbox live???


you can,
but not if you only have appearance mods.

As long as you don't mess with anything performance related,
you're good.

Or at least anything performance related that someone would find unfair

there is actully the same Video out on the back that i am planning on making
i got the idea from him

its a multi out box

he normally uses his Monitor(hes got a 25 inch 5ms LCD)

but if were playing or something

he pulls out the monster and hooks it up to the TV

its pretty cool

but he fried his CPU and 360 like 3 times before he isolated them and added a water cooling system

the thing works great independantly (like just as a 360 or CPU)

but he like sits around and switches inbetween COD4 and WOW
so there both on 64 % of his day


so water cooling is a must for him

ive been told you can do it without opening your console??

and BTW the only way it scratches Disks is if you move it so just be more cautious

It's a pretty sick idea,
and I can see why a water cooling system would be crucial.

360's kill themselves on their own,
even without being on all day while also having WOW running at the same time!
