    While I had previously fixed my xbox 360 from the RROD, it gave up for good this time so I gutted the case and put in my osx86 machine:

    I realise it has a big ugly external power supply, but that's next on the list to fix :thumbup: Other mods of this kind had butchered the back of the case too much for my liking so I wanted to get the case right first!

    Looks clean and tidy mate. Good work! :thumbup: On a side note, what is the temps like in there? Doesn't look like there is much ventilation.

    It's a single core celeron 1.6... temps aren't really an issue. I run it vertically so convection is enough. Under load it's about 53'. I had considered adding another fan untill I saw the temps.

    What are your plans for the PSU? Are there ones available that look like normal power bricks, or will you mod it into an enclosure of some kind?

    Ok no problem. I don't really have much experience with the 360's thermal design it just was an observation. :)

    Lol thats so creative
    I wouldnt go putting more in there though
    Mite get a tad hot without much ventillation
    Maybe find some 92mm fans and mount them at the back as exhaust

    very good job i like the way you handled the psu , when you extended the cables how did you ensure you did not get any crossed?

    as long as you put the psu out of site i dont think there is much need to change it.

    only thing i can think is pull a PSU from a small pormfactor pc when your area does hard rubish you can get ones quite a bit smaller that will be fine to power that system

    Very neat and very impressive, it looks factory, imo one of those pico psu's with a powerbrick would finish it perfectly.

    When i put a XBOX 1 in a pc case and re-wired the psu i done each wire one at a time so you can't get them mixed up.

    Thanks for the kind words everyone!


    One wire at a time is the only way to go!

    Oh, and the PSU i have lined up for it is from a shuttle PC. It will fit in the original xbox power supply shell so that's the next challenge.
