Doesnt matter if its a Foxlink or not, two resoldered ponits and the power supply is as good as anything else. But to answer the original question, no its not possible. They use different plug styles, and there are different standby voltages.

Thanks for the answer. More more question.. What about the cases compatiblity? Could I take a 1.6motherboard & 1.6 powersupply out and put it in a 1.0 case? My 1.6 case is busted pretty bad. But my Xbox ver1.0 doesn't work right.

Thanks,

Couldn't you just look at the two and see that they're not compatible? Since the Psu has one row of plugs and the mobo has a set of two. Its like asking, "Will a three pronged electrical plug work inside a two slotted outlet?"
