AtX Converter Board

Recommended Posts

I need an ATX converter board.  N64 Freak is sold out.

Does anyone else have a spare they are not using?

N64 Freak released over on DirtyPCBs.com designs for ATX converters. From there you can order production of a minimum batch of 10 bare boards. There are some pitfalls though: you do need to know in advance what version Xbox you intend to use, as there are two designs. One for V1.0 to V1.1 Xboxes and another for V1.2 to V1.4 Xboxes. Reason being, the first two revisions of the Xbox motherboard uses a single row socket, the following three use an actual ATX style connector, albeit internally wired and voltaged differently.
Also you do have to populate them with the required SMD components, socket and wiring yourself.
Currently: I am in the process of waiting for a batch of V1.0-1.1 adapter boards to arrive and then fit the required components, and this will be the first time I'm trying this. I only intend to use two of them at most if successful, so I've only ordered two ATX sockets to go with them so far. In theory I could offer to create some more using the spare boards if you need an adapter for a V1.0 or V1.1 Xbox motherboard. If you need an adapter for a V1.2 Xbox or above, I'm afraid I'm not able to be of much help at this time, though if you're lucky someone else might reply to this thread if they have some spares for V1.2 and above... though if you need one for V1.6 motherboard, then I'm afraid I don't know where you might find one as N64 Freak did not do a design for that revision. Sickmods.net used to do one if I remember rightly, but sadly that site has died a rather painful death and it's domain recycled for use by the usual advert parking companies... yuck. Anyway, I'll report back if I do manage to successfully make my set.

Thank you I am aware of the PCB's at dirtypcbs.com.  I am hoping someone who already ordered a batch will have one available still.

I do need 1.1 adapter though.  So let me know if you can assist once you receive your order.

The PCBs were due to arrive today but Fedex has experienced a delay for some unexplained reason, so it probably won't be till Monday that I can even start getting anything assembled :/ Glad to see you need the the same kind of PCB I'm attempting to make as I hate throwing away completely working surplus materials! Could you please PM me with specifics such as your location?

I have now got bare PCBs too but I haven't got them assembled yet. A couple of SMD components I have yet to obtain and I've had a lot to do IRL this last month. Sorry for the delay.

samspin: I am fine with waiting.  I am past my deadline for the project anyway.  So it's all on the back burner for now.  But I do want to complete the project, so please update me when you are ready.

buds, where the links are? can't find anything by searching "ATX" on this site. Looking for the page where the BOM is listed, also the link to order boards from dirtypcbs or whatever it's called.

The links were posted by @N64 freak Please login or register to see this link. ; however, neither work anymore.   @N64 freak must have removed them from that web site.

I found these two pictures using google search of the front and back PCBs with silkscreen text visible.  The back silkscreen is the BOM.

Just checked it myself and the links both work fine for me! 

Might have been a temporary problem. If they still don‘t work for you just let me know and i‘ll look into it :)

Those two links are working now:

Not sure what was happening a few days ago.  Several PCBs I had saved links to were not accessible. There are still others that are not showing up - Please login or register to see this link. , Please login or register to see this link. and Please login or register to see this link. .

I've had a couple of enquiries lately with regards to my stack of PCBs, and if I have any built up to give out. I am going to be totally honest: this time of year causes my brain to go very, very sluggish with winter hatred and I haven't touched them for awhile. I should be able to pick up again in the new year but if it's urgent I would suggest trying to make some yourself, you'll probably get it done quicker than I can. I'm very sorry about this, I don't want people hanging on false hope at the moment.

      Wanting to buy a 128mb Xbox motherboard, I would prefer it to be a 1.2 or any revision that doesn't have the single row PSU connector
      Also I'm only really looking for people in Australia to save on postage cost
      @SS_Dave would you be interested in selling me a 128mb board since your in Australia?

      I have a dvd drive that reads disks but crashes because the board is faulty - can I take a working board from a dvd drive with a laser that doesn't read disks?  And If so is it pretty easy to do - any guides?  Thanks
