I like the way it looks, i might but it just so that i can turn it black. My entertainment system, tv, surround sound system, ps3 and everything else is black. my xbox kinda sticks out.

Oo... Flashy!

If I were to buy one of these, I would still make sure to remove the x-clamps before using this case though.

Seems like it would be really awkward to move/assemble, and doesn't look like a very sturdy design...

And what about the front USB ports? I dont see an opening anywhere for those... perhaps extended ports are integrated into the case?

Kinda Lame, Not really a full replacement case. Looks like it replaces the front face plate and hides the original 360.

True, but it does look pretty slick/sleek. Plus it offers 2 additional fans on the side. If you don't move your xbox much, this looks like it'd be a pretty nice investment. I wonder if those lights are really blue, or if it depends on your actual ring of light? If they are blue, i'd imagine it would extend the USB ports because it'd have to get a power feed from somewhere to light the blue lights up.

I like it. Doesn't appear to void warranty (if you care about that) and will match most entertainment centers nicely.

Hi all, long time reader, first time poster.

It looks good, but as to actual effectiveness for me, questionable.

Yes it has 2 xtra fans, which looking at that vid, they seem to extract, this is fine in some cases, but my work on xboxs reveals that it's not only the fact they dont have enough air being extracted, but more importantly they dont have enough air going into the case in the first place.
The 2 main fans within an xbox are clearly geared to cool the cpu/gpu, offering very little in the way of system cooling, and now I know some of you will say, "but this has 2 more xtracting" - to which i would say, "yeah, extracting over the main intake vent!"

Seems to me that this "over" case doesnt have enough vents in it for intake.
If one wants to make their white case blend in with ones black entertainment equipment, then this is a good idea.
For those wanting to use this as a means of prolonging 360 lifespan.. Better solutions available.

Thats my 2 pence biggrin.gif

a bit pointless, doe to the way it is done, it looks more like it is going to make ventilation worse.

only good thing, it is fancy

My thoughts exactly , with forced air pushing in on the CPU side would only make the actual system fans run at a slower speed cause it's cooling the thermostat and still leaves the GPU to cook

Nice design very Blu-Ray player looking and sleek have to see the final result
