Post subject: what to do with an Out Of Warrenty Xbox 360 Reply with quote

Well, my Xbox is out of warrenty, and technically I voided it by opening the case to replace a dead dvd drive and apply new thermal paste to the heatsinks, I thought why not mod the console.

Bought a lush transparent blue case:


'scuse the mess, lol. I'm not proud.

Got a few more mods I'm gonna do, namely adding a second fan just above the heatsink drawing more air into the case.

Also gonna mod the controller with lights - and yes I am still using a wired controller - I just prefer them to wireless.

Nice job, might I suggest getting some blue/green LED fans for the back?

How does modifying heatsinks, case, fans, etc change the firmware? You don't need a firmware hack to change how your Xbox looks.

Anyway, that does look kinda nice. I don't see how you can fit another fan in it though, I would think it would have to be half in, half out (if it was on the top/bottom). There isn't enough room in the Xbox.

I've heard before that ANY internal mods (Or software) can void live accounts. That was just the first website i found in google just then about it Razz

I cracked open my 360 for a hardware photo session with my macro lens. Several months later I got the RRoD .. MS still fixed it for free.

Success.

However, clear cases are so '99.

that's rubbish.

If I had made any alterations to the firmware or software on the console, then I can understand being banned from xbox live.

however this is purely replacing the case and adding led lights which will not make a blind bit of difference to xbox live.

it is purely a cosmetic change..

Oh and yes, I will be replacing the rear fans for led fans - XCM high speed fans to be precise...

Yes, clear cases may be so '99, but I personally think the 360 looks better in a clear case.
