Hello everyone I wanted to show off my mini classic that I made.

It is made from a 3d Printed case that I modeled.


I gave it some primer


and some paint


Then I went the extra step and made a box for it and had it printed


Finally if you are interested, I made a video of me putting it together

Do you have a schematic of the power circuit you put together. I saw another topic where you were working on it, but never saw an update with the final schematic.

Do you have an STL of the case you would share?

Here is the schematic. The reason the I never updated the other post I because I wanted to get this done and decided to pull back on the scope of this. So figuring out a all in one power solution was just too much for me. Although I am pretty sure it could be done with something like an arduino and a softswitch. There is also the TI webench utility that will literally spit out a pre designed schematic with your power requirements using TI parts. I am pretty sure that is what ttsgeb used for his design.

The STL isnt quite finished. I didn't show in the video about how I went about securing the power plug. The reason is because by the time I had got around to printing and finishing the thing, I hadn't considered that and just printed a bracket and glued it in place. This has the not so great side effect of locking the motherboard in place. I need to add some mounting holes for thermal inserts near the back.

This is an absolute beauty.

Did you change plans along the way and went for a higher case than originally intended, or why did you bend down all replacement capacitors?

Thank you. Kind of, I have been in the scene since I was a teenager and just started laying down caps like everyone else does to their minis really without thinking about it. Really only one need to be laid down in order to make room for the controller ports

In this schematic it appears to be an error as in my understanding and as I have had version 1.6 working with just a 5 volt and 12 volt supply

The PowOn(3.3) is a output from the motherboard to turn on the 5 volt on column 2 pin 6(used for the control port supply) and the 12 volt on column 2 pin 10(used for the DAC 9 volt supply and the Fan)

Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.

      I am looking for a VPN with port forwarding feature for my xbox if anyone of you guide me, is it possible with a VPN, since I found PureVPN is offering this as addon for free with one year plan and 88% discount on 5 years plan as part of their cyber Monday deal.

      Which Xbox dvd drive uses top-60 laser? I found a lot of eBay and Ali express listings for the top-60 laser but without specifying which disc drive is compatible. 
      What are your experiences buying refurb/new optical lasers for the Xbox?

      Found the pin out
      So I need to bridge white to black, think it's a 1.6v

      But do I also need to bridge blue to black to keep it powered on? It's going to power one fan for a 3D printer using the molex connector
