What screws do you guys use on your slims? (To close them) That is one of the last things i need on mine.
havent tried it yet.. But the 360 screws are shorter and should work ok (just checked by eye not by actualy trying it yet.)
They are also a bit thinner so im either gonna use some epoxy in the holes on the top part of the case let it dry and use the screws to thread it. or melt some plastic in there and use a hot screw to thread it..
I think the epoxy is probably the best idea il just use something like 70/30 (hardner to resin) instead of the usual 50/50

Looks like it's coming along well. Watch your temps on the hard drive after you get it reassembled, i've found that if you have a fan on the GPU like that it will actually make the hard drive run hotter as it kinda slows down the cold air coming into the case on that side. I saw a 10F difference when i took the fan off.
What is this monochrome you speak of? Sounds f'ing cool
Monochrome is just black and white.
Im gonna spray the X white. and toutch up the rest of it with black. i went for gloss finish so it should be shiny. I have also orderd a led 80mm fan and i'm going to replace the jewel with that and a dragon designed fan grill. This should make it one of the coolest (least hot) xboxes arround, il jump the 80mm fan from the dvd power i may put a switch on the back to switch fom 5v to 12v but not sure about that yet and i may well just have it running at 5v all the time given it already has 3 fans and the 80mm witll make it 4.
I also swaped out the 1.1 board for a 1.0 board. The 1.1 was a littel bit tempromental as i had reflowd the gpu on it. so i decided better purt in a 100% working board in there. given that its likley to be hotter than normal boxes.
Still wating on my paint and the other stuff i hope it will be a nice day when it arrives as i need to spray it outside. and i dont want it orange pealing on me.
