Hello all. This is my first project.

I started a while ago with just a chip and a skin thinking i'd never do anything agian, but now im adding on and changing things.

Whats been done: Installed Xenium Ice, sodered pinheader meathod. Installed Slayer's V2.6. Installed Hitachi 80gb HD. Installed Skull Skin. Removed jewel. Bought a completly useless external fan grr.gif .

Whats to come: Paint Jewel. Add some glow. Touch up the paint. Mabey turn it into a slim box, but i'll probaly ruin my case. Hardwire Wireless reciver.

And thats my plans as of right now. I know not very original, but im not the most handy with a tool person rolleyes.gif .

And heres some pics, click for bigger pics:

Looks cool but you might want to put a jewel on there again. IDK mby like a devil or skull to match the theme that glows red.

Installed Skull Skin


AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! grr.gif Don't ever say that again! Thats like saying "I just installed a bumber sticker". It looks as if you have painted your case red and if that is so then dont cover it up with a shitty skin. I'm sorry I just really, really hate skins.

Aside from that it looks ok, maybe a window would make it look alittle more festive. Good luck

^^ I agree, which is why its a worklog.

I got an old xbox from a friend and now i got 2 im working on. This one needs alot of work, and im suprised it even works at all. It made enemies a hurricane so its got rust every where in the case. I opened it up and was messing around with it, took off the heat sink, and a penny fricken fell out blink.gif . Plus my friend though it would be cool to do some custom paint, but he failed at it. Heres some pics of the other box im working on.

Im gonna buy a cover for this one and paint it white and blue, sorta counter my other box (black and red). Then do some airbrushing.

Ps. rust is very fricken hard to get off sad.gif

the penny that fell out, was it smoothed down on either side and placed between the heatsink and the cpu? or was it just a random lost penny lol

ive heard of this mod before on a pc as the penny is a great heat conductor.

Just a random lost penny. I told my friend and he said "Whoops."

Well i got 98% of the rust out, now to paint cause i discolored the metal. Then next is to paint the bottem plastic. Off to auto zone i go. Update with pics when the paint is done.

You should just remove all the sheilding and try it on your freinds tv, if it doesnt distort the image or cause interferrance with anything leave it out, saves a job.

Im painting it because right now it dosent have a cover and you can see the discolored metal. Also i though it would be cool to have a different inside then most people.

Side note, i plan on buying a chip for the box (V1.0) and i was wondering what chip has the best Performance/Price ratio.
