for the stability i can print something

That would be good and if you can lift it up a little bit that would help with air flow as there is air vents both sides.

And if you do print something post a pic of the finished item and maybe the STL files .

Ideally you should place the Xbox upside down in case some capacitors start leaking.  That way the motherboard won't get fried. 🙂

No because the heat from the CPU and GPU with be transferred back into the Chip and  PCB and not the heatsink 

I have seen many car audio amplifier that failed because it was mounted with the heat sink facing down.

still come up with a turning mechanism for the crystal, as it was done on the PlayStation 2 logo. it will be very cool.

You can stick the top cover in the freezer for 15 minutes, give the inside a good smack, and the jewel will pop right off. The best part is that as it warms back up again the adhesive is still usable! So you can just rotate it 90 degrees and slap it back on there. Not as easy to switch back-and-forth as the PlayStation but it's a start!

      Thank you in advance for any and all help provided,
      So I installed a X3 chip along with the LCD face plate that has USB on my v1.0 Xbox (not windbond/Sharp). I managed to flash bios to the chip but I am unsure of how to understand the bank switches. Bios checker always show unknown bios.
      I get Evox Bios to load when all 4 switches lights are on.
      I get X3 Bios to load when switch # 2 lights is on.
      Every other switch combination my Xbox just powers cycles on/off 3 times with power button flashing before it shuts down. I can't even get to the flash Bios menu anymore. So my questions are....
      Question 1: On the face plate are my switches are ON if they light up or are they OFF if no light is on! Is this correct? I don't see the on/off wording on it.
      Question 2: How do I determine where to flash a Bios? 256k/512k/1MB/2MB?
      Question 3: The graph description below shows what bank you are on depending on the switch combination, yes?
       
       256k Bank
      Bank 1: on on on on
      Bank 2: off on on on
      Bank 3: on off on on
      Bank 4: off off on on
      Bank 5: on on off on
      Bank 6: off on off on
      Bank 7: on off off on
      Bank 8: off off off on
      512k Bank
      Bank 12: on on on off
      Bank 34: off on on off
      Bank 56: on off on off
      Bank 78: off off on off
      1MB Bank
      Bank 1234: on on off off
      Bank 5678: off on off off
      2MB Bank
      Bank 12345678: off off off off

      I'm thinking of cleaning the inside of my xbox but i wonder if it is save to take the sink off and if yes do i just rip it off bby force or do i need something that shoots direct heat onto it in order to get it off.

      Hi everyone, I have a tsoped original xbox ver. 1.1 motherboard, clock capacitor removed, and running indi-bios. In rare occasions, when I turn on the console..I get a flashing green light with no image nor sound on screen. What can the green flashing light code mean? I tried unplugging the console from power strip, pressing/holding power button for 30sec. and when I re-connect the console and turn it on..I still get a flashing green light. But usually the console turns on fine. I'm not sure if it's a bad ribbon cable, or a bad sata adapter. I do know I have a foxcom IDE ribbon cable, and I do have a good quality sata adapter. The capacitors on power supply and motherboard look fine, they are not bloated, nor leaking. (capacitors look new)
       
      Thanks in advance
