    you can do plexiglass, but it needs to be polished after cutting and shaping it
  2. oh, you finished the mini? I thought you sold it while it was still WIP
  3. one time I got a used one on ebay that smelled like it spent a year in someone's ass I can't even imagine how you make a console smell that bad
  4. >Sometimes you can steal candy from the store and not get caught either. LOL! It's not luck. As far as I know, boards and components are designed to withstand a little sustained temperature like that. I've never had an electronic part get fried by soldering.
  5. >Never hold the iron tip on a pad, not even for a second. I did. It didn't kill anything. It was necessary for the flux to do its thing. But maybe more expensive flux works faster...I dunno. All I have is a $6 walmart iron and weird generic flux with lead in it.

    XBox Mini Case

    I saw your original thread on another site. Didn't you rip out some/all of the filter capacitors to make the pico work reliably? If you did, weren't there side effects?

    Slim XBox Build Log

    nice work custom fitting a desktop heatsink to it, that's some good stuff how loud is the fan?
  8. "Removed the ram chips, cleared the joints, same thing." Not good. You probably bridged some of the legs. That will fry a board. It happened to me.
  9. What's going on with all those other yellow wires in pic #2?
  10. maybe there's breakage inside your component cords? my stereo Y splitter was doing that recently try wiggling/bending the wires around while the buzz is present
  11. I was 23 when it came out and had other stuff going on, there was no time for games.
  12. Good idea. I'll try that. Nope. This is my first time playing it, so I'm doing it the hard way.
