Alright, so why'd you post what ya did if it was YOUR psu???? blink.gif

Because I posted before i figured it out.. blink.gif
It used to run fine in testing, but I never tried a disc. Then I gave up and posted that, which led to ppl giving me ideas and I found out what was wrong.

do these specs meet the requirements to do this?

If not, what should I be looking into for specs?

I'm figuring:
200W minimum and +12V @ 16A minimum

16A is pushing it, as the stock sticker on the 360 says 16.5A

If I was ever going to try this again(and space was at a premium) I would use a X connect PSU. Wiring would be super easy as all the cables are unplugable. This way you dont even open the psu to wire it for 360 use, not to mention hack up ur psu wires. Just get a spare atx connector, plug into the PSU and do all the trasistor wiring on the plug. Take a look at the pictures if u don't get what i'm talking about.

You can get them alot cheaper then that.

Yeah I know about the X connect PSU. Nice looking PSU's. Think I'm going to go with this one:

I don't want to fry my 360, obviously... So I just want to make sure that that PSU will work and be reliable for me... Thanks.

Buy a cheaper one. Afterall your 360 dosn't have SLI. You can pick one up on ebay for about $40 shipped.

Damn.. Do I have to do this mod again to prove that I was talking out of my ass earlier???(or someone should wipe that post)
Believe me, this works fine. MY PSU just was a POS laugh.gif

Unsuccessful. I guess Ill buy a regular PSU off of ebay.

The transistor switch does not work. I then grounded the green wire from the psu which then supplied power to the XBOX so the fan would come on. Thats all that happened. The device tututorial needs to be modified.

The Nyko plug was a good idea though.

So I guess it's a good thing I didn't go out and buy a PSU since this DOESN'T actually work...

well, I don't think there is anything wrong with the tutorial. The method works, you just need a atx psu that can handle the huge load that the 360 pulls.
