wow, thx every body.
im glad the heatsinks are looking good, cuz its a struggle to get iceberq's to australia these days. i know i dont need to modify the heatsinks, but considering i plan on leaving this running for extended periods of time, i though some more extensive cooling was required.
i'll look round for some bigger fans then, as i wouldn't want loud fans to detract from overall use.
i've looked at tapping off controller ports, but i was under the assumption this would render them unable to function as controller ports. i'd like to retain as much original functionality as possible, incase i decide to use it for some relatively old school gaming
as far as i understand it, if i were to pull power from the dvd cord for a power only usb port, all i'd have to do is splice a 5v line and a ground live from the cord?
yea, i gathered from the numerous slim builds ive been looking at for directions and idea's that icebergs are pretty much the best ones out there, but as they're an old product now, and i live in australia, theyre quite difficult to find :/
thx for the photo's, and i like the component ports you've added, very nice
and yes its a 1.6 box. ive already modded the m8 + with lb64 (or whatever that thing is
) bios to skip the Dvd check on boot.
again, thx every one, great to see support for the old girl, even after all these years
