  1. I also have another 128MB board with a mix of M's and F's, and it works perfectly.
  2. Update for this issue: It's been "fixed", and the Xbox is running again. The Xbox is currently fitted with 8 * K4D263238K-UC50 memory chips, flashed 1MB TSOP with 2 SPDT switches for bank control, an Aladdin Xblast modchip, and has currently no outstanding issues, booting or otherwise. Here's the detailed process to success, with accounts of my frustration included: I've been back and forth with this board for a few months now, and never had it properly working. If it booted, it would crash within 2 minutes, and not boot again, until cut from the power for a few minutes. This was the
  3. I'm actually glad to hear that it might be something other than memory incompatibility. I've ordered a 300 watt ATX power supply, along with N64 Freak's ATX->Xbox adapter. I've also ordered replacement for all the radial caps on the board (Panasonic). Hopefully I won't have to replace the SMD capacitors as well, since there's a million of them on the board, but If all of this doesn't work, I'll wait for the oscilloscope to check pretty much everything on the board. For now, I'm just waiting for the replacement caps, M-variant memories, oscilloscope, power supply and ATX-adapters..
  4. I already did this, twice. First I soldered all 8 F-chips. Then I removed the 4 extra, with an SMD rework station, and later on replaced the remaining 4 F-chips. All soldered chips were fresh ones, ordered from Utsource. I still got about 40 chips left, because I was going to use these for other projects as well. I tested the board after each chip installation, with absolutely no change. For now, I'm going to order and replace all capacitors on the board. After this changes nothing (strong hunch), I'm going to order and replace the memory chips with M-variants. I'm really feeling like eit
  5. - Typically it already crashes in XBlast, which shouldn't be using any OC frequencies, and reports stock CPU speed. - Thermal paste has been changed, and fan modifications have been made to the case. typical CPU & MOBO temp was 57C after 4h of gametime, for the last working 128MB configuration with OC. I have not checked the capacitors, nor the PSU 5V line voltage. I can do both of these once my new multimeter/oscilloscope arrives. Are faulty capacitors or wrong voltage typically a cause for this issue? ...I'm this close to ordering new M-variant memory chips from Utsource,
  6. Hi everyone, I recently did a 128MB mod on an Xbox 1.1, which was successful. Console booted nice, and ran for hours while gaming, even with a small NV & FSB overclock. I decided I didn't hate myself enough, and decided to go even further and replace all the K4D263238M-QC50 on the board, with the Samsung K4D263238F-QC50-variant, which is said to be tad bit more efficient. Thought this might allow for even more OC (never enough, right?), but now I've run into issues after replacing all the memory chips on the board: The console boots, but only runs for 5-30 seconds, before the screen s
