hello, long time lurker and first time poster


my old 2006 core machine finally got its RROD last week.

i had planned to take this week off to spend the entire week on the xbox as my car was away getting a bigger engine fitted biggrin.gif

so i went out in the back end of last week and bought a new elite to tide me over, figuring i would sell the core machine on when it comes back (wanted the bigger HD and wireless controllers anyway)


checked my manufacturing date this morning while registering the box with MS and IIRC i have a 13-8-2008 machine

lot 0833 on the box


i am a bit reluctant to take it apart for you lot as i like my warrantee wink.gif

but if you know of any other ways to let you know which revision it is, i will have a go at some point today (got nothing better to do, seams like xbox live is down again?!?!)

cheers

what is this supposed to prove? you haven't taken the system apart, so there is no way to know whats inside of that.

**NOT Allowed** of course u can see a bit of the cooling system by shining a flash light through it. ur camera looks decent enuff to get some shots through the vents. there was a guide on how to do it on these forums from a while back i dunno if its still around. do a search.

The newest cooling setup would be a falcon, and if the jasper in deed does have a 65nm gpu, I would not see microsoft changing the cooling anytime soon, especially for a chip that will run cooler.

I owned a Xenon 360 which I had to fix using the x-clamp method and the drive was bad, I had longer loading times in BF:BC than all the other players. So I waited a long time for that Jasper box.

Then I bought a Falcon with Benq yesterday, because I don't want a Liteon drive. The Falcon is in no way more silent than a Xenon and I really don't think the Jasper will be. It will be a little cooler and maybe need less power, but I don't think there will be a noticeable difference in noise production


Yep I got a falcon when they came out and I was so apalled with the noise I sold it and stuck with my PS3.
Will re-buy a 360 when I can finally load games to the hard disk drive, you guys who put up with the optical noise, good for you but I thought it was absoloutely terrible.

i have no idea?

you tell me ?

i did not even realise that the PSU had changed at all.

i posted up figuring i was doing you lot a favour if you could work it all out with some of my help.

i wont be taking it apart, i have no need to, i had no idea "jaspers" even existed until yesterday morning as i am not "into the scene"

makes no odds to me what the hell it is, my core broke, i sent it back for refurb and bought an elite, and figured if i could, i would give you lot a hand rolleyes.gif without butchering the case.

if the elite broke and the core was sold, i would buy another while i sent it back for refurb and "sell it on" when it comes back.

Not really on topic but dont use that to blank stuff in your pictures...

People can just restore the actual picture by reversing the algorithm, the pixels are still there, they have only been moved out of place...
Either just black it out or blur it until you cant read it anymore...

This doesnt proof that Jasper is out yet though and if it happens you will be able to find it on the mainpage with highres pictures of the mainboard...

are all the "new" PSU`s supposed to have this same text on the back ?

http://i181.photobuc...new360brick.jpg


because mine has different text on it, still 14.2a but it is a different model number.

one thing i did notice was that the old PSU, has "buttons" to help remove the connector from the xbox, with a metal shield type "ground" around the outside.

the new one has no buttons what so ever and no "grd" around the outside of the connector plug


might just be the same as the new PSU`s for all i know

I have a falcon elite that was a jet engine until the hitachi was replaced with a spoofed benq. Its the hitachi drive that makes the noise, not the falcon mobo.

No news about jasper ? I think it's not available yet, and that's why no one was able to show us pictures of the new mobo sad.gif
