SLOT 1 cpu into og xbox?

Recommended Posts

Do I understand correctly that the processor in og xbox is the same as the BGA part of the slot 1 cpu?

If so, using a soldering station, we can, for example, change cpu to a full P3-733mhz 256kb. On a pc, replacing the cache from 128kb to 256 gives an increase in games of 15-30% (if we compare celeron 800/128/100 and p3 800/256/100). Such upgrade does not create speed problems in games. Am i wrong?

xbox cpu is an intel p3 coppermine, they were binned cpu's and non standard thats why interposers have to be used, its a hell of a lot of work and the main reason 1ghz or 1.4 cpus are used is to get the clock multiplier as near as possible, but also because if you are going to do it you might as well get the fastest cpu that you can make work

if you could get a 30% increase by switching the cpu easily i think we would all be doing it.

the thing about the xbox hardware is that while it may seem simple to upgrade some of its hardware its not because a pc will use any resource given to it, but an xbox will only use hardware that it understands, non standard parts cause problems, and if its not what the xbox expects it will throw errors.

hope that makes sense.

      Anyone got a good guide on installing LEDs or a cathode tube into an original Xbox? I guess i need to know some good 12v and ground points

      I dug my old xbox out of the loft at the weekend and am trying to get it up and running again after a 15 year break!  Back in the day I installed an Xecuter chip but this didn't seem to want to work so I binned it and have installed an Aladdin XT Plus2. Box boots up fine but when I try and play some old games they generally run the intros  fine,  but when they try to go into the actual gameplay it throws up a 'There is a problem - the disc maybe dirty or damaged' message. I'm assuming either the DVD is on the way out or the discs have degraded over time and are no longer playable so want to install a new HDD and ru the games from that. Do have a few questions though.....
      It's a 1.4 version,  boots to a Homer Simpson dashboard and has Evox +3935 in the top left corner
      Guessing I'll need to flash it with a newer bios to install a larger HDD, is there a step by step guide on how to do this anywhere (I've downloaded a M8+ 67 No DVD bin)  SATA drives are much easier to source, do I just need an IDE\SATA adapter and an 40 pin 80 ribbon cable to get this to work (will probably only be 500gb) Not worried about keeping anything off the original drive, so do I just swap the drives over and then use something like Hexen (I've downloaded 2020 version) to format\setup the drive  Cheers
