Its a 24pin ITX power supply off eBay with an 20pin cable attached. 12VDC in and ATX standard out. I may have to move a couple of wires around to match the xbox pinout.

 That's a really well set up slim mod.  I'm curious about the confederate flag motif but maybe it's none of my business. Feel free to explain though

jhark, what wireless controllers are you using for this system?

is the Hard Drive a 2.5" size?
would like to see how it looks inside, very captivating.

No explanation needed or should be given. It is not inherently racist even though MANY people try to make it that way these days. Leave it alone. Don't inject racism where there is none.

any pics of progress?


my commentary on the paint job is: "i found you some cover art, please see below" .... I could probably ship you a dickie betts action figure if you promise to glue it to the top.

As a Canadian I don't know what it means anymore so I was curious what OP's thoughts were.  My only interaction with the flag has been on the Dukes of Hazzard growing up.  And the fact that he's from MI didn't make much sense as to why he'd be flying the flag.  It's a really well-done paint job and flows great with the lines of the top of the console.  I was mildly curious as to why he chose it and thought I'd ask.  But yeah no worries. 

I just wanted to explain myself so people don't think i was egging him on to expose a big thing.  That's not how I roll and I don't want you chaps thinking i'm a shit-disturber.

I'll admit that when I first saw your post that I immediately thought "Great, now we've got SJW's coming for the mod scene,", thank you for the clarification on your original comment.and restoring my faith in the scene.

Those Pico psu's are so great in mods both PC and Xbox.

Before they became mainstream afordable I was using busted Xbox 360 psu s, gutting them and putting OGXbox PSU's inside. Now you dont neec to and the results are so much cleaner. 

 

PS I love the flag, because its on top of the General Lee and my old Evil Kanevel toy.

Very cool, power supply considerations are most important. 3.3v standby crucial. 0.5a. 5v will have to run you at least 10a, I think 13 is what the power supply should be pushing out. 12v rail is nominal, no DVD no problem, otherwise think 1a. 3.3v should be just under 5a.
