I have a fan that works on 0.9 amps and it is not running at full power when I used the power from the pins behind the power supply, is there any way that I can get the 0.9 amps ? what is the maximum supported ?

Sorry if this has been asked or explained. I honestly didn't read all 10 pages of this thread. But I was wondering if it was safe to use power from the dvd power cord? If one were to tap into the sources shown in the pic below, would that affect anything as far as the drive performance goes?

I'm sure someone will ask about it getting you banned. I personally don't believe having LEDs or anything else in your box gets you banned. I know one of the theories was something about a voltage fluctuation being detected. I don't buy it.

Anyways, it seems like it might be easier for some people to wire into the dvd power cord. Plus... if you screw up, they are easy to find. I've got a few laying around my self.

I honestly don't know about this. What are your opinions?

Hi, I know I'm jumping into this thread a little late, but I was wondering if you guys could give me a hand with a problem I have. I recently bought some Talismoon fans and other things to light up my xbox 360 and when I was finished installing them I turned it on and they shorted out with a big bang (spark). I think one of the connections might have been loose and possibly touched the heating duct. Now when I run my xbox the fans don't turn on, but the xbox runs just fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks guys.

Hey RDC,

You might have answered this question already somewhere in this thread, but I only read through a few pages of posts and don't really feel like reading every single post to see if the question was even asked.

I noticed near the beginning of the thread that you stated not to use the 5v standby for LED's, LED boards, etc.. I also noticed that you said this is because the power there is always on. Is this the only reason for not using those points, or is there other reasons.

It's a 2A source and the 360 needs some of that, so just say you have 1/4 of it for powering whatever to be safe, until someone puts an Ammeter in there to see exactly. You could still drive around 20 LEDs or a fan from there if you want them to be on all the time, it's not going to hurt anything.

thanks for posting about the various power source options. opted for the 12v under the power connector and ran it top the top of the board through the closest screwhole. also i read every page and just wanted to say thanks for all of the extra support you're providing, RDC.

LoL...I wish I had one. I just recently got a new elite a few months ago. So I think I will be holding off on getting the new slim for a while.

same problem for me. I tried to connect small cooler to Q9E3 mosfet, all worked till i decided to flash my xbox, when i tried to open xbox case , the wire which was connected to one of mosfet leg, came off, so then I tried to glue it back, (xbox was ON) , but as soon as I touch Q9E3 leg, xbox turned to RROD 0001.

so any sugestions ? Im going to buy a multimeter tomorow , so how can I check mofets , condensators , and other parts , which can couse this rrod 0001 ?
