The Foxbox

I hope my pictures work.

It's nothing special, just a slim with a couple personal touches.

 

(btw re-organizing my room)

Hello Fox, your Xbox looks different, never seen such mods.
What about the controller ports, is the USB underneath Power Button the only controller port?
How did you cover the old controller ports?
What is the black box in front of the HDD?
How did you succeed to print that fox logo on the jewel? looks fine.

I was thinking the same thing but my guess would be he used a 3d printer. I myself am not a huge fan of the slim console because it takes away features from the xbox, but I like the look. If I were you though I would add more usb ports and since your theme seems to be fox related I would add another case design to compliment the jewl.

I'm a single-player guy, so yeah, it's the only port. The original ports were filled with spare xbox plastic, melted in with a soldering iron and sanded flush with the panel. It's a crude, non-chemical method of plastic welding I use a lot to repair stuff, but effective where high strength isn't necessary. I made the hard drive tray and transplanted the power button symbol the same way. The black thing is the cathode's inverter.

 

And I'm gonna be honest here...........the fox emblem is just stenciled on. Lol.

I was worried about there being an obvious 2D look to it, but I really can't see the difference between it and the stock jewel with the milled xbox logo. Maybe because of how I shaped the plexiglass. I don't know.

Matta, I couldn't think of any additional style elements. I'm not much of an artist.

Wow I was way off, I am impressed. I have never heard of the method of filling plastic. You also pulled off a very clean and good looking finished product. But anyways what usb controller do you use?? I made my own mod for a controller that has an adapter for a usb so if you didn't do that I would recommend it. It required little knowledge on wires and took only 30 minutes.

great work! you even went with green cathodes they defiantly give off a nicer glow and all your cuts look very clean!

apparently, I was wrong to think the hard drive tray couldn't be moved to the other side (i told someone this the other day). but I'm curious why you didn't just use the DVD tray. a lot less to cut off that..

how are your temperatures? I struggled with high temperatures for a while ., eventually remedied with more fans, less case lol...

The dvd trays are a skeleton frame. The hdd trays have the solid underbody I needed in order to add the board mount pegs. I guess I could've added an underbody but meh.

The temperatures aren't bad. With the factory paste still on, and at 30% fan speed the cpu idles on the home screen at 30C, hits 35C while watching video and maxes at 44C with xbox games. Emulators...not sure. The gpu temperatures with the sink fan are consistently 2C fewer than the cpu ones.

Even still, 30% fan is a little noisy to me, so I'm thinking about making copper heat sinks. If they drop the. temperatures by even 5C I can feel safe running the fan at almost silent 10% speed. At the very least it'd look cool.

Looks awesome , do you have a tutorial where i can see how did you did it?

Thanks. There's no one tutorial. Most of the work is based on the many tutorials for case slimming and jewel work, etc, that you've probably seen. I don't think there are tutorials online for stuff like the eject/power button and USB port. But if you ever happen to try making them though I wouldn't mind sharing tips.

      Hi - wasn't sure where to post this and thought I'd post it here seeing as you guys focus on cases.  I'm looking for the front facia part that says "xbox" and attaches to the dvd drive drawer.  I fixed a drive that I thought was unfixable with a new rubber band and a good cleaning with alcohol.  Now I'd like to find a replacement part in the UK - anyone able to point me in the right direction - can't see them on ebay or amazon.  I have an original black xbox so I need the part in black.  Thanks for any help.

      Hey everyone,
      I wanted to start a discussion/thread about games that are in perfect working condition but for some reason the DVD Drive is too old or stubborn to read the game. I of course have 2 consoles both with Thompson drives and I found (so far) that neither will read the following games:
      1. Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball
      2. Lord of the Rings - The Fellowship of the Ring.
      Both discs are in pristine condition but UnleashX and DVD2XBOX give a "Tray Empty" message. I did a Google search for these and it seems others have the same problems with these 2 games being read on a Thompson Drive.
      I wanted to know what other games and drives folks are having issues with.
      Hope to hear from you all.
      Thanks,
      Larry

      Hey, Everyone! I joined the a few weeks ago. I've been modding OG Xbox since the days of The Screen Savers on Tech (G4) TV. I got my first and only modchip, an Xecuter 2.3b Lite+ back in around 2003. The very first time I got the new Evolution-X Dashboard to load and a Genesis emulator to run I was over the moon thrilled and thus began my heightened interest in "modding" things. I was always perusing the Xbox-scene website.
      Shortly thereafter, I had quite a few folks ask me to mod their systems but they were all softmods and hard drive upgrades. I left the Xbox modding scene pretty much right after the 360 came out but, when I discovered CoinOps, Rocky5's softmod tools, and TSOP modding a couple years ago, it reignited my interest. 
      I've been practicing my soldering skills so I figured I'd give TSOP modding a go. My model 1.0 Xbox I bought back in 2001 was the guinea pig and was successful with the TSOP on the first try. I first removed the old modchip as it was having issues staying in contact with the motherboard. This would cause it to power cycle 3 times then flash red. Once it was removed, the problem went away. I was so elated that I found someone on FB Marketplace who sold my his 1.0, 2 duke controllers, and about 12 games for $30. He said it was having issues shutting off but, after a good cleaning and a clock capacitor removal, it's working great. I TSOP modded that one as well although it took me about 6 tries to get the TSOP writeable. My next hardware venture may be into the realm of 128MB upgrades although my soldering skills are kinda crappy.
      I actually really enjoy playing these old games too and have recently completed Baldur's Gate I and II, Evil Dead: Regeneration, and am currently playing Gauntlet: Dark Legacy.
      Here are some of the other retrogaming interests I've involved myself with:
      Created a Arcade (LaunchBox/Hyperspin) system from a shoddy empty arcade cabinet. It now includes about 80 systems and tens of thousands of games (see slideshow below). You can view my Hyperspin contributions here: Please login or register to see this link. You can view my LaunchBox contributions here: Please login or register to see this link.  (I'm very proud of the D&D Platform I created). Fully restored a Marvel vs Capcom 2 machine from non-working/shoddy status to fully working and Net DIMM expandable. The Net DIMM is a Naomi system cartridge that's network capable and contains 512MB of flash memory so many other Naomi games can be flashed to the cabinet. Soft-modded several Nintendo Wii systems installing new games, emulators, and programs with an SD card. Updated my Sega Dreamcast so games are launchable from the rear serial port using an SD card. Still own my original Sega Genesis with 32x and Sega CD and have collected about 30+ 32x games. Restored/fixed 2 ColecoVisions and amassed about 50 games Own about 60 Original Xbox games, 2 dozen Xbox 360, and about 10 Xbox One games. I've owned the following consoles (in personal chronological order):
      Pong, Atari 2600, ColecoVision, NES, Sega Genesis, Sega 32x, Xbox original, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, Sega Dreamcast, Xbox One S, and Sega CD.
      I've always been the "other system" guy. Coleco over Atari, Sega over Nintendo, Xbox over PlayStation, Samsung over Apple, Samsung over Sony (TVs), etc.
      My interests also include my family, snowboarding, baseball, hockey, movies, guitar, boardgames, throwing Halloween parties, and Comic-Con (conventions). I mostly listen to Celtic music, John WIlliams music, Beatles, Pop-punk, and 80s.
      Good to meet you all!
