Clock Cap Removed and Deep Cleaned My Xbox.

Recommended Posts

I finally got around to removing the clock cap 😃 v1.2 board, though i would completely strip it down as it was half way in bits anyway, and give it a good clean out.  Washed the plastics etc cleaned motherboard, fan, heatsink (Still need to apply new thermal paste) popped her back together after the plastics had dried and to my amasement it works.

The cap was fine to be honest, no sign of any problems at all.  I was quite supprised how clean it was to be honest, just a light bit of dust on the motherboard.

 

Thanks allf or looking.

Hi Craiguk

For the 128meg upgrade there maybe a member here that will put there hand up. The 1st time I replaced a 80 pin micro it took me 60 minutes the ram upgrade I did the other night 90 minutes including 2 coffee stops 10 SMS and talking hands free for 15 minutes while soldering and board cleaning between each chip.

I got up in the morning and seen this on my bench, The Xblast lite chip is temporary to test each chip as I go then gets removed when it's all done.

Then I connect a SD card hard drive and sit a small fan on the heatsinks like below and soak test for 24 hours including launching some games, attract mode in CoinOps 8 and power cycles.

This fan is a quick adjustable temperature controlled setup I made and it keeps the CPU/GPU at 47c with the room temp around 25c.

That version 1.4 is one of the cleanest I have seen in a long time and it's for a forum member and he has some big plans for it.

This is my $5 version 1.4 and the ram upgrade happen because I could not sleep one night and it's come to a standstill for a bit.

This is one I am working on at the moment for myself and waiting on the ram chip that are on the  way.

As well as a N64 freaks internal HDMI to be fitted after the ram.

So far I have set Port 3 as a DVD dongle and USB port that can both work at the same time. Port 4 is the USB for the OGX360 interface.

Ports 1,2 are stock controller ports.

See if you can spot the DVD dongle.

And the Ir receiver for the DVD dongle is mounted 100% out of sight with no affect to the remote range (over 10 meters).

Wow that's impressive Dave, is the dongle mounted in front of the PSU I see a PCB? 

What's that black box with a plug going into it below the GPU? 

You said internal HDMI now then I need to know more about this 😁 you have any links to this little gem of a Mod, I'm all ears 👍

There is 2 types of internal HDMI

This one is based on a wii2hdmi and the PCB can be got from a chinese place called dirty pcb.

On this one I removed the 3.5mm socket thats for left.right audio out as it's not needed

Please login or register to see this attachment.

Then the better one is the N64 freak's version

Please login or register to see this attachment.

 

Both take the component signal and convert to HDMI  with the audio for the wii2hdmi taking the left and right audio and injecting it to the HDMI, The N64 freak version uses the digital audio to HDMI.

There is a fair size cost difference but you get what you pay for either a custom made item or a item that been modified to work. Picture wise it's a close call but the digital sound wins out especially if the rest of you sound system is up to it.

There has also been some work been done on a pure digital HDMI (no conversion from component) that looks like it grabs what it needs before the on board video chip.

The only negative is that Chimp the hard drive  cloning program won't display on anything above composite .

That is the OGX360

 

This is the original of the OGX360 

ogx360.jpg.88f3cdd2241d56b2cbaea5ff88bd05f0.jpg

The one in mine came from Lukas (N64 Freak)

Pros and cons

The original version is supplied as a 2  controller system but can be expanded to 4 controllers and if you use Xbox 360 controls and the usb receiver it will do up to 4 player. It can with a separate interface be internally fitted with auto switching from the stock ports and the USB receiver.

The version that's in mine is 2 player max using the Xbox 360 controls and usb receiver and has the switching built in and is really plug and play

With both versions it is feasible to fit the receiver inside the Xbox but you would need to remote mount a button for pairing the controllers.

Hi Craig

 

Here is an update on the previous posts 

The Xbox has now got 128meg ram and a HDMI kit from N64 freak and I have rerouted the wiring a bit to test fit all the plastics

The USB holder was 3D printed (the pink part) and it came from a Facebook member via thingiverse.com and the OGX360(the black box with the USB plug near the Xblast chip) is the result of german engineering from N64 freak.

                                        Without the DVD and Hard disk mounting                                                                 With the DVD/HDD mounts                                                       USB holder

 

I still need to glue the GPU heatsink or I might make a bracket to hold it in place using the hole left from the plastic holder and the CPU one is held with 4 screws using the holes from the OE plastic holder.

I have already flashed the TSOP with a X2-5032 BIOS so the mod chip can be removed and I am thinking a 2tb HDD fully loaded.

 

Cheers

      Greetings from Greece and congrats for the valuable info shared in this site. This is my first post here although I' ve been reading a lot of threads and have TSOP flashed - modded several XBOXes in the past. Generaly i upgrade hard drives by installing 5400 rmp WD green ones which work great. So my question is simple. Is it ok if I install an 7200rpm 3.5 inch HDD? My biggest concern is the higher temps those HDD generate and how this affects the other internal components of the box.

      Hello,
      I am writing this today to see about getting some help with my 1.6 Xbox and the Xeceuter 2.6 CE installed in it. I recently did this Please login or register to see this link. involving a resistor to extend the life of the board and the board works fine after the install.
      This is also where I managed to find an issue. With the mod chip enabled, both banks load up their respective bioses, but when I disable the mod chip using the front panel switch, the console Frags after 3 tries. When I disconnect the LFrame wire from the mod chip, the console boots up like normal to the stock dash using the stock bios. Before the mod though, disabling the mod chip using the front panel switch worked liked normal.
      So now I am a point where I made a modification to extend the life of the console, but lost some functionality in my mod chip at the same time. I am wondering if anybody knows what would cause the issue I described and if anybody else has ever run into similar issues. Though I know most don't tend to mod 1.6 consoles if the can avoid it.
      I'm also curious if anybody else happens to have an Xbox motherboard that is warped around the CPU and GPU area. By warped, I mean that I can see a curve in the motherboard around that area.
      Thanks,
      DobaMuffin

      Does anyone have this old pc app anywhere? I need it for X2 bios editing but i only have version 3.5 and can't find version 2.0 which is slightly different when exporting .x files for injecting into bios's.
      +10 internets if you can find me a link to the right version
