    nice work custom fitting a desktop heatsink to it, that's some good stuff how loud is the fan?
  2. "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.
  3. What's going on with all those other yellow wires in pic #2?
  4. 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
  5. I was 23 when it came out and had other stuff going on, there was no time for games.
  6. Good idea. I'll try that. Nope. This is my first time playing it, so I'm doing it the hard way.
  7. Anyone familiar with this? At the end of the long tunnel drive scene in the cairo station level my backup stops playing and gives me this error. I downloaded a different copy and the same thing happens. I tried all the recommended fixes like clearing the cache and deleting my save file, etc. Maybe the xbe needs patched? I've never had this problem with other games.

    Thanks everyone.
  9. Yes. I chopped off the bottom of mine with a hacksaw.

    Thanks. There's no one tutorial. Most of the work is based on the many tutorials for case slimming and jewel work, etc, that you've probably seen. I don't think there are tutorials online for stuff like the eject/power button and USB port. But if you ever happen to try making them though I wouldn't mind sharing tips.

    The dvd trays are a skeleton frame. The hdd trays have the solid underbody I needed in order to add the board mount pegs. I guess I could've added an underbody but meh. The temperatures aren't bad. With the factory paste still on, and at 30% fan speed the cpu idles on the home screen at 30C, hits 35C while watching video and maxes at 44C with xbox games. Emulators...not sure. The gpu temperatures with the sink fan are consistently 2C fewer than the cpu ones. Even still, 30% fan is a little noisy to me, so I'm thinking about making copper heat sinks. If they drop the. temperatures by even 5C I can feel safe running the fan at almost silent 10% speed. At the very least it'd look cool.

    Thanks, Matta. I'm using a regular S controller.

    I'm a single-player guy, so yeah, it's the only port. The original ports were filled with spare xbox plastic, melted in with a soldering iron and sanded flush with the panel. It's a crude, non-chemical method of plastic welding I use a lot to repair stuff, but effective where high strength isn't necessary. I made the hard drive tray and transplanted the power button symbol the same way. The black thing is the cathode's inverter. And I'm gonna be honest here...........the fox emblem is just stenciled on. Lol. I was worried about there being an obvious 2D look to it, but I really can't see the difference between it and the stock jewel with the milled xbox logo. Maybe because of how I shaped the plexiglass. I don't know. Matta, I couldn't think of any additional style elements. I'm not much of an artist.

    I hope my pictures work. It's nothing special, just a slim with a couple personal touches. (btw re-organizing my room)
  15. >im not even sure if your joking or serious lol.. No, it's been my plan all year, but I'm a busy person. Making copper heat sinks from solid castings shouldn't be difficult, especially if they're annealed first. I'm used to messing with hot metal and making stuff in my blacksmithing work. Most of the job would just be filing and polishing. I know this all doesn't help you but I'm just saying. I'm really curious how they'll perform. I've never seen modders try solid copper sinks, except those "iceberg" models I think. But those don't have a lot of mass that I can see.
