So I lucked into a cheap small block jasper with a good cb and wanted to build in something I could cool better than the stock case.
Also wanted to do the bulk of the mods to anything but the mobo and leave lots of room to experiment with different cooling options.
I wanted the atx case to hold an atx power supply to run everything and give me lots of extra power for fans, pumps, 3.5" hdd whatever might tickle my fancy as this evolves.
I definitely wanted the atx supply to behave like the 360 supply so inverting the power on signal was a must.
Still a work in progress but seeing as the case only arrived yesterday I don't think it's progressing too badly.
For those who might ask why or want to tell me it's not cost effective you wil never get it god bless you but just click elsewhere... I just felt like it. That and 3 rrod falcons in a matter of months may have left me with a desire to cool the crap outta a 360 and to use a jasper.
On desk in pieces awaiting case but everything working.
mobo tray I made from scrap of metal in my basement junk pile.
used old junk falcon and old junk atx mobo's as layout guide as i'm lazy and out of dykem and honestly i'm not fitting a match bbl here i'm bolting a game system to a $60 case so it's nice to just make a few marks and drill some holes for a change.
In case everything working execpt not yet extended the sync and eject, power is tied to case power button.
Presently using old 320 gig 3.5" drive I had lying around but going to get at least 1.5 gig.
Presently using pair of 120mm fans stolen from an old A70 lying around in junk box.
Tonight I plan to wire sync to reset on case and put eject on momentary NO switch I had in junk box once I mangle the liteon into the case I'll decide where to mount the eject button. Really I'll use it for booting xell more than i'll ever actually eject a disc... what do I need with a disc in this thing
Using guts from old hdd shell and m-f sata cable for hdd normal sata and long power cable for dvd dead 360 supply donated cable I grafted to 620 watt atx supply. I guess that's about it for now.
Constructive feedback and suggestions welcome.
