Ah! Your the one i 'borrowed' the idea from! Making the front flat! Used a few mixed ideas for my slimcase. I remember seeing it somewhere and u just reminded me, plus those pics of ur hot woman i remember seeing.

My slimcase has controller port numbers filled in, MS logo filled and the power button removed and covered up cos i don't need it. Eject button is power. Finished the first colour today and the front looks awesome, you cna hardly see where i filled it in!

Also, its not just on the left where u need intake. The power supply gets hot enough as it is but will get hotter. I know there are heatsinks, but im worried its gonna get hotter than usual with the vents filled in. I dunno if it'll make any difference, but i have a feeling ur power supply getting overly hot, a lot, will shorten its lifespan.

thats not cool to say. you could say nicely, "i dont like it" or "i dont like the way it looks" stating your own opinion. by saying "its extremely ugly" you are bveing a dick. straight from your sig:

STOP : People always say there are no new mods on these forums. No interesting threads. You want to know why?
Well maybe if we all stopped flaming the newcomers we would have some interesting topics instead of boring useless shitty ones. Think about positive yet constructive criricism instead of negative comments to the modders which arent up to your standards !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Get the standard of these forums back to where they should be !!!!!


maybe you should follow some of your own advice.

Hey guys...thanks for the comments.


As for it being ugly...it might be. But then again, you could say the stock xbox is also "extremely ugly". I think the completely smooth, shaved look is pretty damn unique, and sexy to boot! I've just never seen something like that, and I wanted to do something different.

As for the NES, it was pretty easy. Ben999_ has a picture of the MB with the solder points. After that, it's just a matter of cutting and painting.....here are some pictures smile.gif

I didn't think an xbox was considered "classic"... hmmm
Oh well.
Lookin good but I think it'll still get to hot for my likings, I personally don't want an xbox a few degrees within shutting down.

Yeah...that does bother me. However, it's all working fine, the system doesn't get that hot to the touch, and I don't have it modded, so I dunno exactly how hot it is. This is one of my live boxes, and it's a 1.0, so I really don't feel like dropping a chip in.

Sorry, my apologies, i did not mean to offend granulated in any way, he posts pictures of his modded xbox and you have to get feedback from people.

First of all, i am not flaming granulated in any way, he isnt a newcomer and has my respect for previous mods. This is just one of his i really do not like.

I never said the case was shit or crap, my opinion of it was "extremely ugly", its just not my type of xbox, i can see how much work he has put into it though, it shows. But there are several chips from the bondo aswell.
Granulated is definitely up to my standard of modding, and i stated if he liked the xbox then thats all that matters, nobodies comments should sway him.

Kind regards,
eminvil

Hey, so it's not your cup of tea. It's really different, that's okay. Some people are gonna love it, some won't. I'm not offended, don't worry about it smile.gif
