Hddhackr Compatible With Wd Scorpio Ide Model Beve; Confirmed

Other than that, SOP for this hack. Not sure if anyone is interested, but if, like me, you can afford a $12 dongle, but not a $49 hard drive and, again like me, you happen to have a WD Scorpio IDE drive lying around (250 GB in this case), it's worth a shot.
You may have to file down the hard drive case around the pins before the adapter will fit, depending on which adapter you wind up with. This hack fits in a Lian Li case, I can't speak for the original case fat or slim, but the adapter adds maybe 5mm to the ass end of the drive.

I've played Doom 3, CoD 3, and loaded Halo ODST to the drive and then played ODST, all without a hitch. As far as I can tell, the only thing lost in transition were the avatar images. I can live with that.
I have a Thermalright SLK-900U coming in the mail tomorrow or the next day, when I tear down the case to install it to the CPU, I'll snap a pick of the drive and post. As well as a pic of the Thermalright XP-90 I modded to fit the GPU and the aforementioned SLK on the CPU (off topic, I know).

Kudos to everyone that coded, hex-edited and wrote all the tutorials for this process. Tried to find a MS branded 250 GB "old school" hard drive lately? They're getting hard to come by. And still spendy as hell when you do find them.
