Some explanations:
The box is painted metallic black, metallic green (sides, memory & USB door and the HD), and the original chrome of the xbox on the HD/DVD.

Controller will be painted shortly, just gotta find a right screwdriver first :S
Ow and green CC in the bottom on Soundreactive module..

and (obviously) window mod.
No 12v Fan mod for me, things running fine for 43+ hours now and is already loud enough wink.gif

You should try to sell it on Ebay for around 7.000 dollars just like the llamma edition which is already al almost 10.000 dollars.

I thought about that.
But decided not to do it because the material was too weak (in my opinion) and the screw attachment point (?) wouldn't have enough support.
(the little *stub* in the window of Llama's box is where that screw attachment point is located.)

I'll make a brand new design once they're gonna sell cases wink.gif
I wanted to be careful because this was my only case.

For the ones who want to know how to wire up the CC:
I used the 12V from the DVD-drive (measured it all up, just to find a perfect tut here on X-S... bastards tongue.gif),
then connected the ground to the ground of one of the fans.

Wow. Looks really well done. I think the smaller window looks great.....it's something different from the few windows I've already seen. Is it flush mounted? I couldn't tell from the pics. Kudos, man, it looks awesome.

Looks really fantastic! You could easily make $5000 on that online. Just add a USB laptop drive and you'd be set!

One question, less than a suggestion; would it be possible to put a small window in the *bottom* of the system (when it's horizontal) so the green CC light comes out the bottom and makes it look like it's floating? All Alienware-esque?

The MB of the 360 is mounted on the bottom side of the panel.
I haven't looked yet, but maybe a way to do it would be to mount the CC outside the inner metal box, and under the plastic panel. (inside a BIC pen to reduce size)

I think you would have to cut a bottom part of the metal box open to make room because it's screwed on tight to the bottom panel.

I'll take a look tomorrow, I still have one green CC left.. happy.gif

Couldn't you solder it to the same spot, but from the bottom? Or does the pin not go all the way through the board?
