Just trashed another 'Box, now on my fourth. This one got the E74, then X-Clamped, then E74 again, then heat-gunned, then 3RROD, heat-gunned again, and now dead. Now that Forza 3 is out, and I have a large selection of games for 360 (and only 3 for my PS3), I've decided to shell out some serious cash and do the job properly: a stupidly modified 360, with plenty of cooling and lighting mods!
Now don't worry, I've done tons of console/PC building/mods for years, so I don't need your help on that just yet! But I do need some advice on my XBOX 360 Hard drive.
I have seen tons of mods for an "LED Hard drive activity light", but not one tutorial/mod for someone with a clear HDD shell, who wants to mod it with many LED's that remain always on.
I am going for an XCM Halo Green full case, and as NOBODY makes a green hard drive enclosure, I have to go for a clear one with green lighting, (unless you guys tell me the stock HDD and side panels look alright on a full green-transparent 360).
I don't want to do the clear hard drive case, but it is (I assume) the only way to pull off a hard drive attached to an attractive custom case.
So herein lies the dilemma. Where to stick these LED's or Cathodes in my HDD, and where to solder/splice/connect to, to get the correct power for my LED strips/ LED's/ Cathodes or whatever other green lighting you guys recommend.
PLEASE TELL ME THERE IS A GREEN HARD DRIVE SHELL/MOD OR AT LEAST A WAY TO GET GREEN LIGHTING IN MY HDD!!!
Sorry guys, but I really need help here, as I have to order the parts. I haven't even played Forza 3 yet! *sob*
Many many thanks to the dedicated 360 modders, and the whole XS community for all the expertise you give to the 360 world!
