A Random Internal Hdmi XBoX 1.6 With Custom Gpu/Cpu Fans

Recommended Posts

Since I had taken these pics to show N64Freak to troubleshoot my DIY install of his internal HDMI mod, I figured I could also post them here.

This is my 1.6 XBOX motherboard. Since it runs my arcade pedestal, I only needed the board itself. It is on wood and plastic spacers off the wooden base I created.

Standard AladdinXT modchip.

For a much quieter, and at least as cool if not cooler, machine I replaced the heatsinks with these GPU coolers. Works after a few hours of play and no temperature issues.

Here is the Toslink optical port mounted (still having some issues getting sound out of it for some reason)

And here is another view of the HDMI install.

My advice for anyone else doing this install is to use good solder, good flux, and a HOT iron. And double check every connection with a multimeter, as from some of the install steps, there is no turning back to fix.

Temps seem to range around 35°-45°C

For the coolers, you need to measure the distance between the holes already in the XBOX motherboard and match that, as best you can, to ones for GPU. There used to be an actual aftermarket one you could buy straight up, but I forget its name and a couple years ago they seemed impossible to find so I just went salvaging random broken GPUs I found on ebay.

      I dismantled and washed an xbox and cleaned the motherboard with alcohol tips - the problem is that the motherboard - controller ports - inner plastic parts of dvd drive and hard drive still stink - it’s like a stale cigarette smell any suggestions? Thanks

      So Hello.

      Please login or register to see this link.
       
      I have seen conversion made out of original xbox controller working with windows operating system so can I use that information to reverse engineer usb windows controller to work with xbox? I dont have any clue how xbox recognizes what kind of accessories are attached to controller port?  
       
      So here are maybe few ideas how approach situation: 
      Combining  original xbox controller cable with standard usb cable?
      Could I use maybe wireless dongle for xbox and hardwire duke into that use it that way?
       
      All information is really appreciated.

      Dear All,
      I currently own 2 xbox, one 1.4 and one 1.2 motherboard revision, both work fine, but on 1.2 I see vertical lines, when running on Pal Interlaced modes (480i) since the graphics chip is different, Focus vs Conexant, has anyone experience the same?
      Both mobos have latest Ind_Bios 5004.67, brand new caps and thermals replaced
