Ok in comparison mine looks actually very pathetic and poor. Thanks for that, lol.
Seriously though amazing work, well done. What are your temps like having it that slim? Did you have any problems getting the psu to work at all?
Congrats on the workmanship, very neat and very slim!
. Mine may be thinner, but yours really does look much more professional. I can't beat that perfect laser-cut look that it has. Predictably, it doesn't exactly run cool. The CPU idles at 100*F and the GPU at 120*F, even with the GPU heatsink fan running at 12v. In games the CPU runs around 130*F and the GPU hits 140*F. Pretty toasty, but I've heard of people getting away with considerably higher. The HDD is somewhat cooled by the GPU fan. Initially, I had problems getting the Xbox's PS_On signal to trip the transistor and get the PSU to turn on. Turns out that I was just using a resistor with a way too high Ohm rating. It was 100k Ohm, but it worked fine when I switched it to 10k Ohm. I'm using two regulators to bump down the standby voltage and PS_Ok to 3.3v.

Does it have built in wireless? Or DVD Dongle? can we see picks of the unit assembled but with the lid off, I would like to see how you fit the parts in there, like the power button and usb ports.
Wireless LAN or controller? I honestly don't think there is enough room in it for the wireless bridge, but I might put a wireless controller dongle in there. That's why I left two of the controller ports free. I don't have a DVD playback kit and if I did I would just use it on my other 'box. Gotta love how these things are dirt cheap
. Here is a pic of it running open:
