My First Slim Build

Recommended Posts

Now i have started on my first slim XboX.

 

It is an 1.1 xbox i bought a while a go, it has a Xcuter2 Lite chip it, so my first working chipped xbox. Thought this was i good candidate for an slim, since i can run it without the DVD PCB.

I rigged the "dremel" and got ready to cut (after reading a couple of guides)

But the switch broke when I tried to start it..... Had to fix it:

Found the bigger toy for cutting the shield

Test fitting while cutting:

I mounted a 60mm fan to the shield.

And test fitted it in the bottom

And finally fitted the newly cut down dvd caddy with HDD (not the one i am using yet). Need to get a molex extender, since it wont reach as it is.

I am pretty happy with my first slim xbox. It is not finished yet, i am thinking of tinting the lid. Not decided what style jewel to go for yet, or if I should mount the shield again or not. Maybe leave as is, or black out the interior. Maybe even som led mods?

 

But it seems like the hardes part of the mod went pretty well, I'll let you decide.

I also have to make or source some bolts to use, and not decided if tinting it black, red or red with black on top......

The MD5 hash for this 256KB BIOS of

0x535c802faccd1ce56f52216bc649f92f

is for the X2 4981.06 BIOS from the Hexen installer disc.  Found it listed in the HeXEn 2018 iso's HeXEn Tools/BIOS IDs/BiosIds.ini file.

Not sure what mods have been made in XBTool since this MD5 hash does not match an unmodified X2 4981.06 BIOS which is equal to

If you plan on upgrading the HDD, I'd reflash the modchip with a different BIOS. 

X2 4981.06 is one of the latest Xecuter X2 BIOSes but not the latest available - X2 4983.{06 or 67} (size: 256KB) or X2 5035 (size: 512KB).  LBA48 configurations .06 for partition 6 only or 67 for both partition 6 and 7.  However, for most HDDs especially a 2TB HDD, you'll be using an HDD partition table stored to the HDD with XBPartitioner v1.3.

I would use from the Hexen 2018 installer disc, either M8plus F & G, X2 5035 or iND-BiOS Beta Feb-11-05 (aka 5004.67) (size: 256KB).

If using X2 5035, it has a configuration file that should be uploaded to the root of the F or E drive - x2config.ini.  The iND-BiOS has a configuration file - ind-bios.cfg - that should be uploaded to the root of the Xbox's C drive.

I'll look into it :) flashing bioses scares me a bit though. I plan to use a IDE disc. I have a lot of nos disc, so I guess it will be a 250gb. I killed my only 500gb.

You sliced half inch only but anyway nice work.
Yeah I did not go crazy slim. Enough to no need to mod with another psu and smaller disc. I may look into that later maybe, and I may be able to cut more and still fit all I have now. I have several spare cases, so I may try another slim, and try get it as slim can with everything inside. I guess I need to mod the power button pcb to do that?

I think this box is close to done now. Cleared the jewel using this stuff.

Then I tinted it black.

 

The mods:

-Silent 60mm fan

-New thermal paste

-Removed clock cap (it's a 1.1)

-400gb IDE hdd (NOS)

-Original bottom, crystal top

-Slimmed down

-Tinted red and black

-Cleared and tinted jewel

-Extended the power cable for the hdd, soldered.

Still need to source some screws that will fit to secure the top.

 

Since this is going to be my daily driver in the living room, I don't think I will do light mods on it. I may do a controller port led mod, but not sure yet.

 

Now to fill it with games and other software 563bc81593f049cf5ced766657b0cd22.jpg

Not bad at all!  I wouldn't have gone with the dark tint and red combo personally but you pulled it off quite nicely.  Curious why you installed the top RF shield hiding all the cool insides.

I like the clean look it gives. I have a ghostcase one without the shielding, and that one I had to clean up alot before I liked it. df81bd15b19e6ce35eb4f9adf8cd496f.jpg

      I'm starting a slim xbox project in my spare time. Updates may be infrequent. The idea is hopefully to keep the entire box under 50mm thickness. I want to try and cram in a 2TB 2.5" HDD with SATA adaptor, a picoPSU, and Ryzee's wireless 360 controller board. The motherboard is a 1.0 that I've TSOP flashed and upgraded with 128MB RAM. It's going to be a very tight squeeze for sure.
      I've modeled a case for it that needs to be 3D printed--though the expense from Shapeways is a bit much for me right now, and it's too big for the local printers! The edge of the case will be sanded and wrapped with a brushed metallic vinyl. The top acrylic will be attached using press-in brass inserts and machine screws.
      The bottom of the case will be a frosted LED diffusing acrylic. Hopefully, I will have room to put some LEDs underneath for a nice soft glow.
      Today I started by attaching the cooling solution. I'm using a Dynatron A48G that I've drilled and tapped so I can attach it from the bottom. Two nylon washers were used to ensure proper mounting pressure without bending the motherboard PCB. I was planning on using a 120mm slim fan (only 15mm thick!) as my active cooling, but if I'm low on space and can't fit something I may have to use a 92mm instead. Right now with the 120mm fan it runs at 46c CPU, 40c M/B which is sufficient.

      I thought that all of the original Xbox forums online were all gone/dead. It's great to see that there are still active ones to be found!
      For my first post I wanted to share one of my first Xbox consoles I modded. Its nothing special, just something designed to be used at events where hundreds gather where I wont be afraid to have any number of random visitors using it.  

      The Xbox itself is simply softmodded and it has been reworked to use a 2.5" SATA HDD. From the 120gb it now houses coinops and a number of modded Halo, Timesplitter and Battlefront games. The idea is a very multiplayer friendly console that is intuitive to use. While it has an XBMC dash, it boots directly into coinops so any number of people can use it without having to ask what to do. Before I upgraded the HDD I took a snap of the original guts while I was working on the console. The HDD is sitting on a spacer above the motherboard to allow for increased airflow, done after the capacitors were rewired and replaced. For fans I am using a Sunon for exhaust and the famous Iceberq 4 for the chipset. The PSU has been wired externally similar to a laptop. While I could have used a picopsu, this defeats the purpose of the console being cheap, easy and worry free with strangers using it.

      It's nothing fancy. But it looks great, its robust, it doesn't overheat after 12+ hour sessions, I have very little money invested in it and I built it so I wouldn't be afraid of strangers mashing on it.
