    Default Eksz Box on a diet Revision 2

    so ive been playing around with my xbox, but hesitating to really do anything to it seeing as it was our (me and my fiances) mode of gaming. but those days have come to an end. my brother in law (her brother) got us a 360 pro package for christmas so now i have no need to worry about goin gameless
    so here is my latest piece of work. im sure its gunna take plenty of bondo to finish up, but when its done? heh we'll we shall see. im gunna be stuck with only 2 USB ports now, but meh. still enough for a keyboard and mouse







    i would hope that the people who commented on my post in the chatter box will now understand if i was not clear enough

    sorry bout the crappy celly pics

    PS WATCH OUT OLSEN TWINS!!! YOUR NOT THE THINNEST THING ON THE BLOCK ANYMORE!!

    UPDATE!!!

    the latest work on makin the slimbox work out..
    obviously fitting things into this box will be difficult..
    the harddrive? absolutely horrible tyo try and fit.. but i did.. barely.. i opted out of putting in the laptop HDD because i figured.. well i dont wanna reinstall everything.. and i have useful stuff on that drive..
    first.. the CPU cooler.. definitly a challenge.. i took a old 40mm fan from a MX400 i had laying around
    and grinded out a spot on the heatsink so it would fit within the case
    like so:

    fit rather nicely i would say

    test fitting all the new components:

    &

    aslong as it stays under the height of the HDD i will be fine

    looks good so far.. but nowhere close to done.. i still have to wire up the fans power source.. and put a new wireless dongle inside for a controller (the silver one from before wore out and the blue one sucks)
    thats all for now

    It looks nice; Microsoft should have made xboxes that size. Good idea with the fan, although it probably doesn't even need one. It doesn't hurt to keep it a little cooler, I suppose. +rep

    You can buy em just about anywhere online, just search google. And just as nevermind just said, I bet people will be wiling to give you parts. If I wasn't working on an xbox mod myself, I would throw mine towards you.

    Current projects:
    Project:8core
    ON HOLDKarbon Kreation
    ON HOLDFish Tank Media PC

    I'm modding an xbox, but I'm putting an intel atom board into it and using a pico psu, so I don't really need the original one.
