Posted 29 May 2006 - 12:24 AM

so i finally received all my parts.

I will be putting Green LEDs in it, and a ECU (Extended Cooling Unit - runs the fans for 5 minutes after it's turned off)

i am assuming that the +5v (that i need for the ECU) is unswitched from this page: http://www.xboxchops...n_360_volts.php
QUOTE
Grounds and a 5v "unswitched" point can be found by the power supply plug. This 5v is on anytime the 360 is plugged in, and is not switched by the 360 power.

The 5v can be found on this pic i made:
IPB Image

I might replace the fans with different ones at a later date, but i have no complaints with the current ones.

OK!

First i want to all of you to never strip wire using your teeth, as i kinda did a little damage to mine:
IPB Image

Step 1:
get your intercooler!
IPB Image

Step 2:
open up the power area! Cut off the 2 connections and carve some plastic off the 5v wire!
IPB ImageIPB Image




Step 3:
get a 5 LED Lazer LED (i'm using 2 of them)
IPB Image

Step 4:
Open it up!
IPB Image
sorry, the chrome reflects the flash. There is a lot of hot glue in there, so it might not want to come apart.

Step 5:
take all the chrome off - might be hard with all the hot glue! (repeat steps 3 - 5 on the second LED)
IPB Image

Step 6:
get your ECS!
IPB ImageIPB Image

Step 7:
get the power cord for the ECS and cut it off!

more comming soon.

i need to get some heatshrink!

Right, but he can use all that chrome he's strippin off the LED placeholder device to have a chrome tooth. Forget gold and platiunum grills; it's all about the chrome, baby!

BAH! I would never cut open my lazer LEDs! Those things are expensive tongue.gif . Can't wait to see how this turns out. You might want to get that intercooler painted. Maybe some sick decals, idk. Keep up the good work.

P.S.

[ebonics]Yo man, jo grill is hecka f'd up. Do what dat lil dude said above and chrome up that mug.[/ebonics]

ok.

step 8:
after all the wires are stripped, connect all ground wires together. connect the +5v wire. connect the wire going to the fans and the output of the ECU together. then connect all other +12v wires together.
IPB Image
this is a quick test (all +12v together, so when the ECU is running the LEDs are dim - not what i wanted.) by connecting it to my PC via molex connector before i soldered it together and put electrical tape on (i didn't have any heatshrink like i thought i did).


@Sloppy Fat Dump:
I dont know where you got your Lazer LEDs, but i paid $5 each at Directron.com

well that was a quick test i had for about 5 minutes. so scotch tape was fine for that. i now have high quality electrical tape over them.

is that "WOW" a "wow good deal!" or "wow expensive!"? cause ive seen these lazer LEDs for $10

New pictures soon, as it is completed!

thanks, and to answer your question: no. Lazer LEDs run off of 12v power, and the HDD only has 5v power.
if you did hook up the 5-LED Lazer LED thing to a 5v source, 3 LEDs would be very dim, and 2 would be off completly. i know as i tried it.

I've taken the pictures and am currently uploading them. they will be here soon.

step 9:
now that it's wired correctly, solder it up, and tape or heatshrink the connections
Since i accidently deleted the photos of this, this crappy diagram will have to do:
IPB Image

step 10:
Put it all back together! Hot Glue the Lazer LEDs to the sides of the case, and put the white foam strips back in place.

Also, make a small hole just big enough on the side or in the middle so that the wires going to the ECU will fit.

step 11:
once everything is done, party time!

Note: the green is much richer than the seagreen in the photos - think LED traffic light green (if youve seen those LED traffic lights)
