I dont like that first case, and the second one is alright, but I'm not into those type of cases at the moment.

all personal opinion, but i happen to like the first one... if you look at the measurements tho, it's entirely too small to put an xbox in. the biggest there was under 7x7 .. xbox mobo weighs in at what, 9x9? oh well..

the second ones also looked a bit small.. a few might be big enough, but i personally think they are far too plain to bother with. why waste time modding it into a plain old brick of an enclosure?




but, uhm... you seriously spent years looking for those? huh.gif

ghostavel did best job ever in xbox case mod (see here)

there is no money or guy that can bring me an object like this,
so i search over and over, and can't use my Xbox in my living room.

The original case is so ugly.

I search also for VESA mount case, to place xbox back of my 40" LCD, and hide it. But not luck.

I will give up soon.

Bye!

i cant imagine a VESA mount would be very difficult to make, why not just make it yourself?

That case was handmade by Ghostavel. So you're not going to find nothing like that. Even if you did, do you know how hard it is to fit the internals inside it? Extremely hard. You need a smaller PSU, Slimmer HDD, etc...

Hello to all,
i know hard work made by Ghostavel.

I think that VESA mount can be a good idea but hard to find a good case.

Search for VESA mount in google images and you can understand what i
want to say...

but it's strange that anyone made a case with
same feel of Ghostavel or Apple product ( Appletv rules in design)

Xbox is the best Media exstender ever, Xbmc and this forum take
advantage to us that other people see only in end of 2007... Strange world.

Sorry for bad english,

and good night to all
