Is it essential for the xbox to have that metal heatsheild on the case? I'm planning on installing a cathode or LED's on the jewel tonight and I'm wondering if I can just leave that metal case off and just put the regular plastic on alone. Thanks in advance! biggrin.gif

shocking, im guessin the search is down then?
that "heat shielding" asd you call it, is actually RF shielding (i think that was the final theory) and it really doesnt make any difference taking out the top bit. I took outt the bottom bit of mine also and it works fine...smile.gif

Dan Wysocki,
did you noticed any change without the bottom metal shielding ?
I'm planning to remove my one and don't know if it's there for a heating purpose or RF shielding.

From what i've heard, the most that happens if you remove it is possible problems with other electronic equipment nearby, someone mentioned their audio video on TV, etc. I've played with mine off, and no problems, All the grounding is done through the psu

So if I understand, if I already have the top part removed it will make no change to remove the bottom one.

Search.

Technically you can remove the shielding, most people leave the bottom and sides. There have been issues reported when removing the sides/bottom. I'm sure if looked at the pinned topics, it's explained in more depth wink.gif
