Watercooled Xbox 360 Laptop Mod

From benheck.com:


What a fitting news item for the 6 year anniversary of my site. Yes, it's been 6 whole years since the first incarnation of this site limped onto Geocities and shocked the world with a -gasp- portable Atari 2600. Shortly thereafter I was on the Gamespy network, then in 2004 I bought a domain of my own. It's been a fun ride and now, for your viewing pleasure, I present the Xbox 360 Laptop!

I guess I would say I don't "mod" systems so much as completely rebuild them. This is a perfect example as everything in the Xbox 360 has been taken apart and reassembled, with LCD screen, in laptop form inside a custom case. Here are the specs:
1) Uses a 17" wide (diagonal) 1280x720 progressive-scan LCD VGA monitor (for HD-level resolutions) Thus you can actually read the text in Dead Rising.
2) Water-cooled with custom-built radiator. Allows for a slimmer main body versus the mammoth heat sinks in a stock 360.
3) Built-in keyboard and Wi-Fi.
4) USB hub allows original number of 3 USB ports for user.
5) All-aluminum case, except for plastic keyboard / ring of light / screen control area.
6) Uses single customized "expanded" power supply brick for both screen and Xbox 360.
7) Breakout ports on back allow hookup to component TV, VGA monitor, sound system (analog or TOSlink) and even crummy composite video.
8) Size: 16.75" x 10.75" x 2.8" Weight: 14 pounds (with water loaded)

Originally I didn't think this project would be so tricky but I was quite wrong, it became the most monstrously difficult one since I've been into this "portablization" thing. Oh well. At least now I know how to build it.

Click on the links below to read the whole step-by-step story for the creation of this unit (good way to waste a lunch hour) or click "Photos" to simply see, well, more photos of the thing. Enjoy!

Best mod for the 360 I have ever seen. Bet this would cost a pretty $. I think its gonna be hard to top this. Anyone know if the keyboard works, maybe i skipped passed it up.
