When I get a camera, I will make a log of my custom Xbox case I just thought of now. It will be smaller, like the Low Profile Xbox Jeeproject did, but I can't decide whether to keep the dvd drive or not. Now the whole case, won't be stock, so that brings me to my question. What would you do, if the motherboard or psu, doesnt have the ground shielding touching it anywhere? Should I somehow add the ground shielding into it somewhere? And last, what would happen exactly if I didnt have any ground shielding for my mobo or psu? Thank you.

I'd say as long as your xbox isn't sitting on an old tv, it should be fine. If you want to be safe though, just cut the original shielding to fit in your new case.

Well if this helps you any when i made my wooden xbox case i didn't have the metal sheilding in it and the mobo and psu worked fine. I just screwed it right into the wood. So idk if that grounded it or what. But i think there was a post about this when like making custom cases do you have to ground it somehow. But that was awhile ago so i can't find the post. Hopefully this helps you alittle. Good Luck.

i agree. just to be safe, but ppl have asked this before and people have said they have had no problems. but better not take any chances, just cut it - cant wait to see it, i love low profile cases!!! wish i could do one meself, but im not that good.

Since my case would be out of wood instead of plexiglass like everybody else, I dont think I will use the ground shielding, unless someone tells me what could happen if I didnt (like what touched what). My Xbox case will be less wide as the stock, but as tall as a gamecube. That is all the hints I am giving till I post pics, and get my friend to make the case. See you later!
