Xbox Slim Case Design


Recommended Posts

So as you may know i've already designed 2 different xbox mini cases and I'm also working on a full replacement case.

This design sits in between these two, it loses the DVD rom and uses a 2.5" HDD/SSD instead of the full sized HDD. It also keeps the original PSU.

The lid incorporates ducting to guide air over the heatsinks and also holds the HDD/SSD.

Sttill a work in progress but heres a quick look so far:

Now this is pretty cool, I've been working on one myself, though its slow progress as i work 2 other jobs right now. I've got the model done. main thing I've been trying to figure out is how to power the xbox without the psu inside.

You could always put it in a box externally, like the 360 started. You’d have to add some long wires connecting to the Mobo and the HDD, but seems fairly doable. Insulate the wires coming out of the back of the case to the PSU box and plug it in like normal. Downside is having a hard wired PSU.
