I've given up for now, but I wanna know how some of you guys got your underglow to fit. i've only got one side wired, and i can't get the front panel to fit fully on. any tips? thanks.

Here was the underglow I put in one of the Xbox's I sold...

There are 16 LEDs in there, all sanded flat to even out the lighting. They are glued in place using a VERY small amount of hot glue... I would take some better pics... But I no longer have the Xbox.

it wont fit....only 4in will fit, but u really need to sand and cut the acryllic around it to size. i used that tut above and mine came out great.

The 12 inch will work.

I also tried that subtle underglow mod but my controller ports made it look like there was no underglow at all. Does anyone have a picture of the inside of their front panel to show the placing of LEDs and wiring?

EDIT: I don't know why the picture is sized weird like that.
