plus from the looks of things it breaks more than it fixes.... :)

well, it all works...it just works too good haha. xbmc is blazing fast. my box starts in less than 10 seconds. ftp is at least twice as fast as it seems the low system specs were throttling it before. also, i have had some success with playing h264 720p videos from my network. i think people have made it all work at correct speeds, so once i do to it will all be worth it. still looking for some advice on what to do though.

 

Well I do hope you get it all working mate plus hi def films is a real bonus if using the machine as a media centre like I do. I got my pc hooked up to my tv tho so I can get round that problem.... the xbox is quieter than my pc tho...

 

once you figure it out maybe you could tell us how its done, might be useful for future reference :)

i will keep you updated. right now, im testing a new version of surreal that should support 128mb. will update later today hopefully.

Yes, it does look rather nice... :)

 

Did you buy the case or is it a custom build? I notice the dvd drive has been removed - what size hdd did u use?

 

Also are the case lights (extra fans?) running from the dvd power supply? nice bit of kit that!

@ PhilExile - Yes, I can test it for you. PM me a link with what you would like tested, emu and all. I will do it within the next week.

@ ace9094 - Thanks!

@ sbpaabck - I bought the case here. It also came with a small ring of 4 leds that i put in there to add some light. Yes, I got rid of the DVD drive, and my new HDD is 320GB =]. There are many lights. The ones that came with the case obviously plus controller port lights and custom power board lights. Finally, the fan is a blue led fan, and i have an iceberq 4 pro that has blue leds. The main fan is running from the HDD power so is at full power, and the iceberq is running from the motherboard in the space where the old GPU cooler used to plug in so it is also at full power. Trusty installed the extra fan connector for me (very nice surprise, its a 1.4 XBOX, so it wouldn't normally have one there). The original fan connector sits unused currently. The dvd power is also untapped. The connector is very specific, and i didn't feel like messing with it, so I'm not using it.

@ Nextel - Thanks for the patch. I think that's the same as the one I have, I will be trying it out as soon as I get a bit more free time again. Did you patch every .xbe file or just default.xbe's? And you are correct, it is a slim =]. Do you approve?

@ ace9094 - He had it ready when I paid him, so it took only a few days to arrive. I actually sent my board to him to get modified, and I think the total time was only three weeks. Plus, my package was on hold for a while because of the volcano in Iceland, so take off a few days at least. It was very quick service, and he is trustworthy for sure (it's his name lol).

Hell yeah i approve. I've been afraid to cut into any translucent case because i didnt know

how the dremel marks would look. I believe i only patched the .xbe's in games (usually only 1)

and I think for Coinops i had to patch the default.xbe and the MAMEox.xbe too. That box looks

really good too, well bloody done.

yea, i was a bit afraid how it would look after, but it came out nice. a little cloudy, but after a bit of sanding and enough toothpaste i had the cuts looking fairly clear again too. i used my old case to practice cut first so i could get an idea what i was doing. thanks dude.

just touching on the other topic you were helping me with Nextel, my CPU gets up to 170F or 77C. do you think this is a problem? i used arctic silver 5, but the normal heatsink that trusty sent me. also, my gpu has an iceberq, and is pretty good temperature-wise.

last thing, i wanted to make a couple changes to my bios (boot order, logo colors, random stuff), how many times can that tsop be flashed without screwing it up? trusty sent it to me flashed already, so i think he only did it once, but idk for sure. also, since he did it the first time, idk what to use. should i just do the 007 installer or is there a different way to do it if your bios is already flashed?
