Hi all,   I built an xbox mini a few years ago and designed a case based loosely on ghostavels well known xbox mini. I had it laser cut from plexiglass and it turned out ok, but could be bet

So it's been a while but I've done a bit more work on this case and intend on releasing the design files so anyone can 3d print one if they choose to (once it's finalised). I've been 3d modelling

So the laser cut top pieces arrived but I forgot to allow for tolerances so I have to sand the edges a bit. I have now amended the .dxf so that it takes fit tolerances into consideration.  I've a

Would you be willing to share the 3d printer files once you are done with that? I am working on a slim system myself.

 

Testing heatsink fitting and dvd pcb placement. (I have since ordered the openxenium dvd elimination pcb)

These are parts I have ordered for once the DVD elimination pcb shows up so I can build a right angle adapter and directly connect my drive to the board without the bulky IDE cable.

I plan on releasing the design files with the community once i've tested fitment and structural integrity. 

Regarding the disc drive I am using a no dvd bios which is TSOP flashed to the board. I've done this before with no issues, The HDD will be set up with a dashboard so I can just FTP anything over to it.

Can I ask where you got your heatsinks from? I've designed a replacement bracket to use a Star Tech 1U server heatsink and fan for the CPU and a smaller generic 40mm heatsink and fan for the GPU.

I got the heatsinks off ebay the heatsink is the "Titan ATI/NVIDIA Copper VGA Cooler TTC-CUV3AB"

 

Im doing all this for a 1.6 xbox, but the more I dig into it, the harder having a 1.6 is making it. Im trying to find ATX to Xbox power adapters and they are all for 1.0-1.5 Xboxs. I may have to try and revive yet another Xbox to downgrade to something other than a 1.6 to get all this working. I just didnt want to deal with a clock cap.

Thanks for the link, im trying several different heatsink setups to determine the most effective and efficient ones.

To be honest 1.6's have a lot of negative points. You can't tsop flash, you can't ram upgrade, you have to rebuild the lpc to install a modchip and the video encoder isn't the best either. They do still have clock caps, its near the IDE port I think but I've not heard anything about them failing, I assume because they used a better capacitor. I prefer 1.1's myself.

      Hey all.  Sorry if this has been posted, but I searched and couldn't really find anything.  I have a 1.0 Xbox that was handed to me by a friend.  He said he couldn't remember much about it, but that him and his kid tried to mod it a long time ago, and now it isn't working.  Upon opening it, I found a pin header, no modchip, tsop points soldered, and the underside D0 pad ripped off.  When I try to start the xbox, it cycles power 3 times then frags out.  I'm assuming this is due mainly to the ripped D0 trace.  I've tried repairing the trace, and bridging the two pads connected by the green line, but I can't seem to get the solder to stick.  Is there any other way to repair this, or is this the only way?  Relatively new to xbox modding so any tips would be appreciated.  Thank you!

      Hi,
      I have a hard modded OpenXenium chip with a 1 TB WD Blue HDD.  I have everything set up and I am trying to get more than 200 GB - with more than  > 200 GB left on a partition.  Filezilla is not letting me do that.  I am just trying to transfer the titles.  They are all HDD ready for transfer but they do not go through at a certain point.  They  all become failed transfers.  The bios I am using is unleashed x from the OGXBOX installer.  It was not flashed by the program but was transferred by my network.  It is a CEE bios.   I switch dashboard sometimes.  The only one that I have on there that is not preinstalled is Emulation Station. I had used the DVDmulleter to get the bios necessary.  The HDD has been partitioned correctly having being split from F to G the remaining left.  I am fairly new to this and any advice to help would be beneficial.

      I have a Jet Set Radio Future save that I have played around 25 hours in that I would like to be able to play on my console, but I haven't been able to figure out how to resign the save. The save has an "error reading JSRF save data" and doesn't let me use my save. The save originated in Cxbx-R and it won't allow me to move the save to or from the console without this error occurring. Not sure how to proceed from here, and would be grateful if anyone wanted to help me out. I have attached the save if that can help, thanks for your time.
