is it possible to move all the contents of the xbox(motherboards,dvd drive, hdd, and etc) and put it in one of those computer cases with the liquid cooling stuff?

Why would you want to? The xbox case is cool and compact. If you want to put it into a case just build a regular pc. Liquid cooling is not needed for xbox because the processor is not in the Ghz range. But I suppose if for some reason you wanted to do this you could.

well, think about it this way.....

we all know the xbox is like a computer right? well, might as well put it in a comp case just to fit its purpose.

Okay, now here are some reasons why i wanna put it in a comp case:

1. better ventilation for motherboard even though the cpu does not reach the gigahz range, but it's also beneficial for your high rpm harddrives.

2. for those of you who installed multiple hdd, this would be a great idea instead of buying another expansion bay to store your hdds. Plan to do the 413gig hdd project? this would be a great mod.

3. you'll be able to install cd drives/burners and PIMP OUT YOUR XBOX!

i plan to get one of those ATX CHROMED computer cases and design an xbox sign on the sides. Either CHROME OR BLACK.
BUt i was only wondering IS IT POSSIBLE TO DO IT??

HAHAHA! that yoshi guy is one hecka of a guy! incredible and genius to have a knob switch to switch different consoles and back to the pc. JUST INCREDIBLE!!!

i guess im on my way to mod my xbox. Buying black atx case with green light lighting from the inside and it's going to be pimp! Just the xbox though...hahaha...only the xbox. no other consoles.

go chrome, but don't get one huge ass box. get a size that you can still put to the side of the TV.

colorcases.com has some nice cases.

also check out newegg.com

my recommendation: In-Win FT621

All you would have to do is paint it black and put your xbox jewel on it. and walla... only downfall on this case is that there would only be two places to fit a harddrive.

or maybe this one... : ElanVital MX1

it has three bays for hard drives.
