Joined this forum to try to get some information on modding the xbox 360.
I've bought a used 360 a couple days ago, still waiting for it to arrive. I'm already planning some mods for it, but I'll need some help or advice on a mod or two.
The xbox 360 has a faulty DVD drive (fails to read), the idea is actually to do the RGH so that I can run backups and homebrew.
The mods I would like to do are:
-Place a 50 or 60mm fan on the front side of the CPU HS
-Mod the top cover (it's actually halfway done from a previous RR'd 360)
-Cover with carbon fibre vinyl
This is the half way done top cover:
Suggestions are much welcome on what to improve it
That cover was to be part of a project I was doing to house a mini ITX mobo on an xbox 360 case...
My idea for that cover is to frost the acrylic, but I've tried searching throughout google for a solution, but nothing concrete on the subject.
Can someone tell me a cost effective and simple way to make the acrylic have the frosted effect? Preferably a gradient (from clear on one side to "frosted" on the other)
Regarding lighting, I intend to place a couple of 10cm bare cathodes on the top cover to light up the green acrylic, from the side.
