    llama.com/xbox

    Sells all xbox parts, including case shells. Just an alternative to eBay.

    Wow. I've put together a fileserver/media pc in an xbox's case with a mini-itx board but this looks awesome so far. I might just redo it with a better motherboard and video card after reading this, hmm..

    i've seen those before, the only problem is most are recomended for Via Epia mobos and nothing else, and the 12V input is not a problem, i have many 12v adapters just sitting around

    this thing will power most p4 boards, and is more powerful than the other one posted - they're only recommended a lot for via boards because they're so small, and so suited for epia-applications.

    Thats the exact thing that posted before. As he said they only work on VIA's mini-itx form factor mobo. I still think the one i showed would be the best size/money psu.

    but if you read the page is says, " New! Pentium4 Support! PW-120-M can power most P4 motherboards running up to 3.0Ghz!" so thats why I posted it, its not just made for mini-itx's but if yah wanna cram that other one in, go ahead its your mod :D

    that would be pushing it on a 200W PSU.

    check www.itx-warehouse.co.uk - you might be able to get yourself a second smaller PSU and use that exclusively for the TFT.

    These skins are major poo! Seriously, i got the silver one and it lasted about 20 minutes before peeling back! I got the xbox completely grime free before too.

    if you do get them i'd suggest a can of spray adhesive would be a good accessory to them!!

    Just spreading the word!

    [​IMG]

    And here is the heatsink! it was a lot smaller then i expected even though i knew the demsions of it, and most of all its PERFECT for my case and it will leave me plenty of room.

    And this is my old laptops 24X Cd-ROM with an adapter to make it an IDE CD-ROM, and it works great, i tried it out on my server.

    o yeah i want to say thanks to leezard from www.x-trememodz.com for hosting the pics for me since i killed my photobucket account. More updates will be comming soon, but at different intervals now that i have a job and cant spend all day at home.

    What would be great on one of these mods would be to have a slot load DVD drive... then you could watch movies on it... heh

    Great project BTW - I would say try to sand the (visible from exterior) hot glue down and paint the area around the USB black, and possibly find some dye to dye the little flap thing of the LCD black too..
